Oh yum! Oh yum! Oh yum!

I love S’mores. They are one of my all time favorite guilty pleasures, but one that I don’t enjoy very often as I rarely have the three ingredients in the house at the same time to make them. But, this tea tastes so much like them that I need not find myself with a craving left unsatisfied again!

I can taste the chocolate and the marshmallow – these flavors are very distinct – but the graham is a little less so. I find that if I slurp, though, and allow the tea to sort of vibrate along my palate, the graham comes through.

The black tea comes through too, although it is rather mild. As yummy as this is, it could be even better with just a little bit of Lapsang Souchong in the blend to bring out the campfire-y notes that all my best memories of S’mores have. I think that for what I have left of this tea, I might add a few leaves of Lapsang Souchong to it to see if I’m right.

Otherwise, this is really very good.

ETA: I almost forgot the reason why I went hunting through my stash to find this tea! I thought it would be the appropriate tea to drink as the SororiTea Sisters kick off their second giveaway this season! You could win a 12 Days of Christmas Sampler from Della Terra Teas: http://sororiteasisters.com/2012/11/23/the-season-of-giveaways-take-2/

This sounds so yummy, but I saw somewhere that they added flavorings? Does it taste chemical-y at all? I’m really sensitive to artificial flavors.. not sure if it’s psychosomatic but they always seem to give me a headache :/

Such a shame because this sounds wonderful!

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:
http://www.teareviewblog.com

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
