It’s not exactly coffee. But it’s not really just tea. It’s literally both and they call it muul.
Pronounced like “mule”, muul is a marriage of coffee AND tea, and if you’re a caffeinated beverage aficionado, this is a must-try sort of thing.
A few weeks back, the muul crew sent a few packages of their concoction for me to try and you guys were super intrigued on Instagram and Facebook when I shared this video:
The folks behind muul, based out of Toronto, Ontario, came up with the idea in their hunt for a coffee substitute that was a little less acidic and therefore kinder to their tummies.
“We began adding tea leaves to our coffees and quickly discovered they mute coffee’s acidity, not to mention enhanced overall flavour.”
If you’ve been following my blog or if you hang out with me on Instagram, you probably know that coffee and tea are my jam. I post about coffee stuff ALL the time. I even have a whole tattoo on my left arm dedicated to tea. So, of course I was going to dive into this whole muul business to see what it’s all about.
Basically, I would describe it as being more like tea, but with a kick of coffee.
It drinks more like a tea and I like it either black or just with a splash of milk. It’s great with almond or soy milk too — and a dollop of honey if you like it sweet!
The muul crew sent over a few different flavours for me to taste test — Maple Chai, Earl Vanilla, and Peppermint. (They have a brand new flavour now, Double Coconut which is currently sold out, but I’m dying to try it!)
My favourite is definitely the Maple Chai, because I’ve basically been addicted to chai since I worked at an Indian food restaurant in my early teens. I used to make the chai and there’s something so special and homey feeling about that smell. This blend totally bring me back and I can’t get enough.
As an everyday coffee and tea drinker, I don’t think that muul will completely replace what I enjoy now, but it’s getting added into the rotation, for sure. I have an entire tea cupboard in my kitchen and I love being able to choose what suits my mood.
I think muul is here to stay.
If you’ve tried it, let me know what you think! If you haven’t tried it yet, comment below and tell me which flavour you’d want to taste first!
Thank you so much to muul for sending over a few different flavours to try out. If you’d like to try muul yourself, check them out at mugofmuul.com. You can order online or if your in the Toronto area, take a peek at the muulfinder to see if it’s been carried at a store near you. This post is not sponsored. This post contains affiliate links.
