I went to a health food store today, and noticed they had marshmallow leaves. Of course, I had to buy them. I mean, it was ~3 cups worth for only $5! That 3 cups is only 50g. This stuff is super light and fluffy.

First thing I did was add some to my chamomile homebrew sleepy tea. There’s chamomile, lemongrass, fennel, lavender, possibly marshmallow root, maybe even other things in there. I don’t remember, and I don’t feel like going back through my random steepings to figure it out. It’s just a bunch of stuff I don’t mind thrown together in not very well measured amounts.

This is nice. Really nice. It’s not as thin as it usually is. Even though I still can’t really taste anything, I get the impression of sweetness.

But, uhh, I have 3 cups worth. That’s a lot. What else should I do with it?

Edit: My last note came up when I posted. So this blend is:
- chamomile – lemongrass – lemon myrtle – marshmallow root – fennel – lavender, and now marshmallow leaves!

I love marshmallow leaves!

Butiki Teas

What about using a little vanilla extract or maybe some mint leaves or orange peel.

what a lovely creation :)

What do marshmallow leaves taste like?

OMGsrsly

CHAroma, right now I can’t tell since I have a cold. Delicate flavours are missing me completely!

Butiki, how about powdered vanilla beans? Mmm… I’ll have to play around. A vanilla orange marshmallowy tea would be tasty.

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! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
