Oh wow this is amazing.
The first time I tried it, my sample from Charoma didn’t travel well at all. Thank you so much for the sample Charoma, I really appreciate you sending me some!
But then I tried some more the other day from Sil’s stash, and oh my what a difference! yes, oh yes it was quite good. Very mild without any sugar, but just a sprinkle really makes a big difference.
I love how the marshmallow is more of a natural extension of the toasted rice than it is just added flavouring.
The vanilla like notes I see in other descriptions worried me at first but I don’t seem to have any issues with it, thankfully. (my allergies seem to have abated somewhat now that I know to stay away from the EG. Yay!)
Yup, this is definitely on my shopping list. Big thanks to Sil for letting me sneak a cup from your stash!

I had two swap samples of this (vegan & non-vegan?) that made it to me ok… but straight from my package was definitely way better.

Hmmm perhaps it was that particular batch that was different

Bio

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
