I really, really enjoy this tea; the scent is, I think, headier than the brew, so I suggest an uber long steep for myself. But I’m also pretty much a master of not minding an excessive steep.
I love to painstakingly take the little marshmallows out of my tea ball before I brew, and toss them in just with the water to make sure they have their full impact – nothing more tragic than steeping this tea and emptying out your leaves afterwards and seeing little marshmallows that haven’t fully dissolved into your tea!
The texture of this tea is great, and I blame that partially on those little mallows, and I find it brings out the graham cracker texture and taste subtly but well. I don’t really find the chocolate that strong in this, which I find nice, but I can also imagine it’s disappointing for many people.
For myself, I say steep it to high heaven, add milk for a creamier experience, and if you’re feeling fun, creative, and silly – throw in your own full sized marshmallows! It’s nice! And it looks so cute and playful to have marshmallows for your tea; I’d definitely suggest doing it like that if you’re having a get together in the cooler months to warm everyone up – and their spirits! _
