Happy Monday Morning Steepers!
I hope your having a good start to your week, and if not sit down for a minute, relax and make a cup of tea. Everyday might not go smoothly but a little cup of warmth and comfort can make it more bearable and help you feel refreshed to start anew. For this week’s wake up tea I am enjoying some Maple Sugar by Davids Tea. This tea was from the Fall 2014 collection and was limited edition but might come back next year or in a few if we’re lucky. I like this tea because it reminds me of my favourite season autumn. It’s sweet and warm, and I think of the maple trees that change colours in the fall when I drink this and the invigorating feeling of joy from my favorite season relaxes me and gets me ready for the week ahead.
Apparently March is Maple Month. Maple syrup is a big deal in my area because we have the right climate for maple trees to thrive and provide sweet sap that we turn into delicious maple products.
“Ever hear that Quebeckers are obsessed with maple syrup? Well, it’s true. In our Montreal office, it’s not unusual to find people pouring it into their morning oatmeal, over fresh fruit and, of course, into their tea. It adds a hint of warmth and sweetness that’s totally unbeatable. So it was only a matter of time before we came out with this all-natural, maple-sweetened tea. With black tea, apple, cinnamon and real pieces of maple sugar, it’s a warming hug on a fall day – and a delicious taste of Quebec.”
