Recommended Recipe: Maple Mule
Maple Fig is created using a black tea as its base. Black tea is what most Westerners associate with traditional tea. It comes from the same tea plant (Camellia Sinensis) as all other forms of tea; however, unlike any other type, it is fully oxidized. Shortly after harvest the tea leaves are rolled to release the enzymes present in the leaf that trigger oxidation. After oxidation is complete, the leaves are dried and then sorted. Black teas produce a darker liquor than white, green or oolong teas and a bolder, more assertive flavor.
Black tea is produced in nearly all major tea growing regions throughout the world and is one of the most commonly consumed types of tea. We recommend pairing Maple Fig with french toast, cinnamon rolls, butternut squash, figs, pumpkin, or cranberries. It is the perfect choice to serve with all of your favorite fall foods.
We recommend steeping Maple Fig for 3 minutes at 195°. Try adding steamed milk and raw sugar and serving it like a latte.
