Got a bit of this at my meet up swap with Alphakitty and it is yummy! Most convincing marshmallow confection taste to date! Sure, all those teas with marshmallow root taste like marshmallow too, but this one actually tastes fluffy and sticky too. Amazed! And the sweet caramel. Mmm. Tasty! Would be a nice latte but I just had mine plain today. :) also enjoying this base as it doesn’t compete with the flavors. Ideally, the base works with the flavors but this is fine as it is. I think a nice chocolaty yunnan would be amazing with the flavors in this tea.

EDIT: forgot to mention how pretty the dry tea is! Glittery gold balls, blue and white Stars of David, puffy marshmallow balls. So cute! Is this tea kosher? Just curious.

Now I remember why I wanted to try this one! :O

Try it! Second steep still had plenty of flavor. :)

Della Terra does marshmallow teas so well!

Mercuryhime

Agreed, Alphakitty! I noticed that it made quite an oily mess of my cup and infuser though. might use a paper filter next time.

Alphakitty

Yeah, having sprinkles and marshmallows in a blend can make them kind of oily/filmy which is icky to look at, a fine paper filter usually takes care of it. I find the same thing happens with a lot of DAVIDsTEA blends as well.

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
