Wow, I had really high hopes for this tea. Also, I have a cold so my tastebuds might be off and impaired today. I will definitely try this again and change some things and hopefully increase the rating.
I used 2.5 tsp of tea for my Perfect Mug of this. Somehow though, this is still really weak tasting and is light in colour. There was hardly any tea bits; it was mostly balls of spice and a bajillion mini marshmallows (and yes, I ate one, and it was delicious and spicy and yum). Watching the marshmallows froth while pouring boiling water over them was rather satisfying (I caught myself going “froooooothhhhhh”, and then thinking to myself “good lord Robyn, you can’t even be normal when you’re alone”)
I will say that this is the first tea I’ve ever had that I didn’t feel the need to sweeten. Like I said, it was 75% marshmallows. It’s plenty sweet. It tastes vaguely of cookie dough spices and cinnamon. It’s pretty lacklustre to be honest. If I had to compare it to something, I’d say cookie dough.
Next time: Increase the brewing time to 6-7 minutes instead of 5. Use over double the leaf recommended. Maybe add some sweetener even though it’s already sweet. I’m grasping at straws here, maybe sweetener will bring out some of the flavours. Oh, and next time, don’t be a snuffly sick mess when you drink it.
