This is a fantastic tea : I can detect the 3 flavours without problem and distinctively, lovely.
Just love the way the orange works with chocolate.
I love the tea base, so mellow, so comfortable for the palate.
Even if I am not a fan of marshmallows (in France we call them Chamallows) at all-I remember being very sick with some when I was a child – I had several marshmallow teas and this one is from far the best one.

I love it but I agree with Azz, it sucks to have only one sample of it :)

“Chamallows”? I didn’t know that, how cute :-) Here, we just call them plain boring “Guimauves”… I knew I should have ordered this one couple of weeks ago! Oh well, something to put on the list then…
P.S. Being sick from marshmallows doesn’t sound too good! Goowee!

chamallows is the name the brand haribo uses in France for these kind of guimauves (little cubes) look at the advertisement in French this is this one which made chamallows the classic name used for these types of guimauves :http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nPp2WydRMTQ
we say now a chamallow exactly as we say a frigidaire (nickname frigo) (which is an old brand) to speak about a fridge in place of réfrigérateur

Bio

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard

94 to 90 : Excellent tea, often in my cupboard

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even nice, why not having it sometimes, but well, not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this tea ?!?!?
