I think I ruined it. I didn’t follow steeping instructions and steeped for nearly 5 mins. My regular for a black tea.
The dry notes smell choclate and marshmallowy. But not or the real variety. A little artificial. I have to say though as it sits beside me after its done steeping it smells like a real s’more is sitting there.
My first two sips were good, not great. I had let it cool significantly. The chocolate is there (I find it artifical like), and then you’re hit with the creamy, gooeyness of marshmallow. I’m not getting Tue graham cracker though. (I wonder what would happen if I added a lil of Whispering Pines graham cracker Rooibos to it?)
My subsequent sips were bitter and very much just black tea. I let it cool too much.
What I do like about this tea over say Teaopia’s s’mores tea, is that the marshmallows actually melt.
Hmm also thinking about trying this on the stove in milk.
I won’t give this a numerical rating until I can try it again at a shorter steep time.
