This was a tea I was sad I missed out on buying, so I was pretty excited to see it in the 12 Days of Christmas pack. The marshmallow root seemed especially intriguing as did the name. The dry tea had a touch of smooth mint aroma, almost like it had vanilla to mellow it out. When brewed, the minty taste is quite subtle for a mint and the more I taste it, the more I feel like the marshmallow really does act like vanilla in it’s ability to balance and tone down the mint. As mellow as it is, I don’t really taste the green tea base, so the minty-mallow must be strong enough to overpower the tea without being overpowering on it’s own. What a strange but beautiful balance! I enjoyed this tea hot, but it was also good cold and seemed more cold bodied rigamortis graveyard misty that way. Although I liked it, I feel I escaped it totally sinking it’s claws into my heart. Okay, maybe it got one or two claws in.
