What is taal?

My childhood memories is fragrant with smells of taal, khejurer gur and grated fresh coconut made into various desserts and pithas. Taal is not available in Pakistan or other places I have lived. I difficulty is that I did not know the English name of this bitter-sweet strongly flavored molasses from a palm tree. But the other day, found out from facebook that it is called Toddy palm paste.
