This is the first tea I have been able to taste in almost two weeks! I had sinus surgery and just got the packing out that was preventing me from smelling and tasting. I came home and opened up a few of the new teas I got and was able to smell them for the first time! This tea won the sniff test of what I was going to drink first.
When I smell the dry tea, I’m hit by a huge sweet smell that I can imagine being the marshmallow part of the treats. I taste the toasted rice flavor when I sip the tea, but don’t get a sweet flavor translating from that sweet smell. Adding a little sugar really completes the taste, bringing out more of the marshmallow flavor for me. This is a really fun tea! I can see why so many people love it!
