drank Fireside S'mores Tea by Teaopia
1422 tasting notes

A sample from Heather at the Victoria Tea Meet.

Ooh, this is pretty good! The tea is incredibly strongly scented, so much so that I was hesitant to make it. The smell is really sweet chocolatey tea.

Steeped, it’s actually pretty good! This is an excellent use of a roasty toasty tea, giving the background flavour of fire roasted marshmallows. This is definitely an application of toasty teas that I believe in! My marshmallows didn’t dissolve, but the tea is sweet enough to not need any sugar to bring out the flavours. The chocolate is in the background here, but it does exist. It goes from roasty and nutty to sweet and a little chocolatey. I used half the sample I received, which was about 2 tsp in my (new!) 315ml pot.

If this tea was still around, I’d definitely buy it. Now to hunt around for a decent substitute!

(PS. I can’t have the Della Terra S’mores tea because there’s crushed graham crackers in it, and I cannot do gluten.)

Edit: Steep 2 with 1/4 tsp sugar. 5 minutes, only 12 oz water. Still really good. Much more chocolate flavour this time, possibly due to the sugar. I see where people get the hot chocolate ideas from!

That’s a bummer about the gluten! The graham crackers are the best part.

That sounds good! I wish it was still around.

I snapped up a bunch of this when it went on sale when Teaopia was changing over to Teavana. It was 75% off, so I got a lot for a little, but I have been conservative with my use to not kill off the stash too soon.

I honestly didn’t even think that places would put actual cookies and stuff in flavoured teas. It’s something I need to be aware of for future swaps!

Heather, I totally understand why you snapped up a bunch. It’s good! I wish I had gone into Teaopia more often, because it seems like they had some gems.

Amariel

They had a few I liked. Davids has aways been my main squeeze, but only a Teaopia/Teavana at the mall I work at, so I had to find some faves.

My S’mores is gluten free! :D

OMGsrsly

Definitely something to consider. :)

Bio

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)
