Snow Maple

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

Story, Folklore, History...

A winter tradition for Ottawa residents, sugar bush season! The silver lining to the cold winter months and a great introduction to spring. 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.

My customers love the snow maple.  I also find it really tasty.  It’s naturally lightly sweet, so have a little taste before you add any sugar/sweetener—you may find you don’t need it!

This tea has such a nice authentic maple flavour!
I’m from Quebec and it’s a sweet reminder of my home. It’s also very popular with my clients who are from the Canadian Prairies!

I was at The Bean Counter in Picton and was served this just delightful tea.  As soon as I got home, I had to look up where I could buy some.  This is a clean tea with simple, fragrant notes.  A true delight. It has captured the essence of maple.

I purchased a sample package of Snow Maple and it is now one of my favourites. Mild sweet maple, a wonderful substitue for dessert.

What is White Tea? - by Safiya Motala

What is White Tea?

There are different varieties of tea available, but do you know what each one is? In this blog series, we will explore a different type of tea in depth. White tea is the least processed of all tea varieties, so we will start here.

All tea comes from the same plant, Camellia sinensis. Within Camellia sinensis, there are two different varieties, sinensis and assamica. Assamica is typically found in the Assam region of India, and sinensis is found in most other parts of the world where tea is grown.

So what makes tea white? Actually, very little. White tea is the closest you can get to a freshly picked leaf. It is basically a tea leaf that is dried and not processed at all.

Let us take a more in-depth look at this variety of tea.


Most white tea comes from China, although more and more tea growing regions are beginning to produce white teas. The two most popular white teas from China are Read the rest of the article on our blog.
