I love how tea seems to be on the cutting edge of whatever flavor is going to be trendy for a season. There were cotton candy teas before I started seeing cotton candy this and that and the other. Now that it’s “fall” it’s clearly s’mores next.
I say “fall” because fall does not truly exist around here until mid-October. And even then, that’s an optimistic estimate. We get excited if it’s going to be in the mid/high 60s in the morning in September.
When I first measured out the tea, there were no marshmallows, so I had to make sure 2 got in this cup. It was kind of entertaining to hit them with boiling water and watch them melt. Or I’m just mean.
It just started raining, finally, it was getting so dark I was getting annoyed. It did this yesterday too but I’m pretty sure it never rained.
THIS TEA IS SO AWESOME. I am going to leave out the part where it needs more chocolate because who even cares, it tastes like marshmallows and graham crackers, and I’d think that’s more of a challenge than chocolate! I really didn’t think the graham cracker flavor could actually come through but it does.
And actually, it does have the right amount of chocolate for s’mores. The creaminess of the marshmallow and the maltiness of the black tea help boost the chocolatey taste.
And I love how it has just the right tinge of smoke. I’m actually not a fan of campfire s’mores because I don’t like even a slightly caramelized exterior to my marshmallows, but if they tasted anything like this tea I’d be game. Although the last time I probably had s’mores while camping was 10 years ago so I’m sure my tastes have grown up.
This is awesome. I’m definitely going to need more than an ounce!
