TTB-A, sample! This is totally not a tea I would ever seek out, but now that it’s in front of me, I’ll try a sample.
The funny thing about mint and me is that I like mint, but I seemingly never want to eat or drink it. I think because it tends to blast my tastebuds and I think almost nothing besides chocolate goes with mint, so I can’t eat or drink anything else during or after eating/drinking it. But this has such good ratings, and I do like the idea of marshmallows, so I’ll try it. What’s else is a traveling tea box for, anyway?
Steeped, it smells minty, and not unlike the mint julep I just had a couple of days ago. The sip is smooth and, well, very minty. I’m afraid I don’t taste marshmallow in any way, shape, or form, except perhaps in the most abstract way of a candy-like quality. By which I don’t mean actual sweetness, but more if you could somehow divorce candy from sugar. Which I don’t know how you would do. There’s a bit of bitterness creeping into this as it cools a bit which is kind of odd; it’s hiding back behind the sharpness of the mint, but I can feel it on my tongue, and hanging around in the aftertaste.
Well unfortunately you have to put me with those that don’t love this blend. Maybe if I added sugar and bourbon, hah!
