Firstly, I ordered samples a while ago and I think this one has been discontinued since then.
I was really excited to try this tea but was wary after smelling it, because the smell was nothing like smores. Reminds me of my disappointment with DT’s Toasted Marshmallow.

The taste of this tea immediately reminded me of sweet potatoes, but not in a good way. I just didn’t like it. :(
What I did enjoy about this tea was the pretty orange color. http://instagram.com/p/Q5xp9YLPB6/

I honestly haven’t had much luck with the rest of my samples other than Whisper of the Woods but I have not given up on Whispering Pines! Hopefully I will try more of their teas in the future.

How long did you steep it for? This one benefits from a REALLY long (like 20 minutes long) steep to bring out the toasty flavor.

I steeped it for 10 minutes like the bag said. I’ll have to try a longer brew next time, thanks!

So strange! Seems that this tea either tastes like melting marshmallows over graham crackers or something really weird like potatoes or tomato juice…wonder why…

Thanks for jot giving up hope! What else have you tried?

I know! its so weird how we all have different reactions to the same ingredients.
I’ve also tried Glen Arbor Breakfast and Blackburnian and was just hoping they’d be stronger.. I guess I like strong tea.
I’m thinking about the Blackmint and Manistee Moonrise to try at some point. :)

As per your comment, a lot of 2-3 different bold tea blends are at the top of the project list. :) Expect them to be available by the beginning-middle of November.

Ooh excited to hear that, looking forward to it!
