I believe this tea comes from Rachel Sincere, ty!

MOAR Marshmallow Monday while I knit socks!

DRY: smells like… kids toothpaste? Those marshmallow roots look like mushrooms to me.

STEEPED: Beautiful golden tea, smells sweet, minty and crisp.

TASTE: Sweet blast of mint, fluffy sweet marshmallow and crisp savory green tea. It’s like minty rice crispy treats. Sometimes it tastes like cream soda. Then the sweetness, fluff and mint creeps out. Weird mouth sensation too, like numbing my mouth. The mint is not overpowering and at a perfect level.

COMMENTS: Now beating myself up for not trying this tea sooner. Of course, it’s been reblended a few times, I’ve seen it instock while I did other 52 tea purchases and now sold out. Sigh. I was mildly interested in this tea from the marshmallow taste as well as the reviews, but the mint was scaring me off – how can you make mint more original? But graveyard mist totally school’d me.

Now I’m really going to press for a subscription with 52 Teas for my birthday or christmas!

I like some mint, though not really combined with anything. Mouth numbness? That does not sound appealing….would remind me to much of being at the dentist. shudders

Awkward Soul

Hmmmm might of been mouth tinglyness from the mint too.

Bio

I’m a crafty knitter and crocheter that loves to work on a project and drink tea. I worked as a counsellor and I chain-drink tea to keep me calm and grounded.

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.
My recommended tea shops:
Mandala Tea
Steep City Teas
Butiki Teas
DAVIDsTea
Della Terra Teas
Lupicia
Verdant Tea
Yunnan Sourcing
52 Teas / Zoomdweebies
Yunomi.us
Red Leaf Tea
New Mexico Tea Co
Bluebird Tea Co
The Persimmon Tree

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

I have a husband and a bunny who both hate tea. More for me!!!! MUUAHAHAHAHAAA
