Snow Maple

The light and floral notes of white tea and flower petals combine perfectly with maple flavour. Delectable and sophisticated tea.

It is a chance to see the production of pure Canadian maple syrup and enjoy the many delicious uses. Possibly the most memerable part of joining in is the taffy in the snow where children (and people of all ages) get some warm maple syrup to pour into the snow and make their own snow maple taffy.
