After enjoying Marshmallow Treat Genmaicha, I had pretty high hopes for this tea. This was definitely a disappointment. The smell of the tea in the pouch is a bit off-putting. I don’t know what it is. Maybe the lapsang or the chocolate flavoring? Once outside of the pouch, it smells more like a toasty genmaicha but it still has a strange, syrupy aroma.
I expected the taste would be like a chocolatey version of Marshmallow Treat. It tastes pretty weird. There were some pleasant notes from the genmaicha base, but they were hidden beneath a strange flavor that did not remind me of marshmallow nor of chocolate. This is definitely not a tea for me.
