Gave this one a try today… Thanks to Tea Sipper for sending it along from my wishlist when I bought a couple of other teas to try.
It’s been awhile since I’ve seen a tasting note on this one and I had forgotten what it was “supposed” to taste like from having read about it previously. I decided not to look and to steep it as a black as it appeared to be.
Dry leaf smells sweet and vanilla. This is a pretty tea, not for those that like little fun things sprinkled in their tea leaves. With tiny marshmallows, little blue star flowers and gold balls, this is a fun one to look at.
Steeped it reminds me so much of the little marshmallows that you get in kids cereals. Lucky Charms comes to mind. I think it may even be good as a cold steep. This comees complete with the flavor of the dust on those marshmallows… Don’t tell me you never picked them out of the cereal and ate them by themselves!
I will enjoy this sample and how it takes me to my childhood. It almost makes me want to go to the local Amish store and pick up a little bag of those marshmallows… They buy things in bulk and re-package for resale.
Oh so sweet marshmallow cereal for breakfast, then off to riding my banana seat bike on the gravel drive on the old farm. – The good old days!
