I brought along this sample from Alphakitty on our minibreak and had the perfect opportunity tonight to try it. We went to a wood fired cafe tonight that has this great “date night” option. Upstairs, they have a babysitter. You drop off your kids and then head off to dinner downstairs. You order food for your kids and they feed them upstairs. Wasn’t sure how the Bean or the little dude would do, but if meant the husband and i could drink beer and have normal adult conversation, I was pretty sure the kids could handle it.

Anyway, after way too much pizza, I ordered a s’mores. I’d seen someone else get one and it looked insane. Burnt marshmallow atop a chocolate bar atop a homemade graham cracker. It didn’t take much thinking. And it was crazy good. I actually didn’t eat much of the chocolate bar, it was too thick, but the burnt marshmallow/graham combo was to die for.

So… back to the matter at hand. When we got home I was still thinking about the wonder that was that s’mores and decided I’d try to prolong my enjoyment by making this tea. Funny thing, only thing i could really taste was the burnt marshmallow flavor, which is my favorite part. I didn’t taste much in the way of graham cracker or even chocolate for that matter, but the burnt marshmallow sold me. I can’t wait to get home and try the marshmallow treat sample that Alphakitty sent me as well.

I think I’d order this if it gets reblended again but first I’ll need to try the straight marshmallow one. Thanks Alphakitty for the treat!

I love tea. And I love beer. I spent my twenties thoroughly enjoying all that beer has to offer but now that I’m into my thirties and a stay at home mom of 2 little kids and 1 big kid, I spend more time enjoying tea.

I joined steepster in Feb 2013 and it’s crazy how much my tastes have changed since joining. Before, I liked cream and honey in all teas and loved mostly dessert blacks. Now I almost rarely drink them, but enjoy them from time to time. What I love more than anything are straight rich black teas, Fujian, Laoshan, Rizhao, etc… I also love pretty much any black tea that the little leaf hoppers have gotten their teeth on.

I’m still not too into the green/white/oolong varieties. I keep trying to but my tastes are evolving pretty slowly on that front.

Overall, I just enjoy tea. Something about it that just settles me.
