I am almost out of this one! I like it ok but I probably won’t order it again. Tastes kinda like a hazelnut flavored coffee.

This is interesting…Vaguely sweet, vaguely fruity, maybe champagney? I like it but it isn’t going on my shopping list or anything. Glad I got to try it though! Thanks Jessiwrites! :)

Totally tasted champagne-y to me – and I hate champagne. It was very well done, though.

Oh man, I would really like this one if it didn’t taste artificial somehow! It’s not terrible, and I like iron theory but there’s just something weird about it…thanks for the swap anyways Jessiwrites :)

jessiwrites

This one was not my favorite, either. But… rooibos, bleh!

Stephanie

OH right, rooibos! No wonder it was ick :)

jessiwrites

It’s definitely one of the better rooibos teas from David’s, but I still just taste medicine.

Wanted something cheery this afternoon. This is about a cheery as it gets! :) Next time I have to try it iced. Its almost too hot here for hot tea today! 81 degrees in early April? WTF

I definitely oversteeped this one, but it was very forgiving! I like this one a lot but I think I might like the s’mores slightly more. It is basically a good genmaicha with a hint of marshmallowey sweetness :)

Having a cup of this…hoping it will calm my nerves! If nothing else, maybe it’ll work as a placebo, heh.

drank S'mores Genmaicha by 52teas
690 tasting notes

Let me preface my tasting note by saying I am a big fan of both genmaicha and lapsang. This tea is wonderful! I can detect all the notes I was looking for- marshmallow, graham, and chocolate! I am really digging this and sort of wish I had purchased more than one pouch! Most chocolatey teas seem to have black bases and I’m learning I need to stay away from higher caffeine teas so this is PERFECT for me. I DO wish Frank added brewing instructions to the bags…I always just kind of have to guess how much tea and for how long! That is my only complaint really :)

Sil

wish mine had tasted as good as your review makes it sound

Stephanie

I’m not sure if the problem is just that this tea is not for everyone, or if the batches are really that significantly different! :(

Sil

Hard to say, i did enjoy his regular old marshmallow genmaicha.

Stephanie

I tried that one last night…I want to try it one more time before I jot down an official tasting note. I enjoyed it but it is not near as complex and wonderful as I found the s’mores to be.

Kittenna

You just picked this one up, right Stephanie? So it’s from the most recently-blended batch?

Stephanie

Correct Kittenna
