Fragrant as a Parisian patisserie on a Sunday morning, this sweet, baby pink infusion is an herbal cup ideal for cloud gazing the day away. Fluffy mini marshmallows float on a dreamy cloud of apple, raisin, sweet papaya, and toasted coconut swirls. True confection perfection.

I bought this for my birthday last year and I’ve tried it a few times. I’m quite disappointed with this blend because it doesn’t have much flavor. I was expecting so much more, especially since it’s got hibiscus thrown in the mix. I might feel differently about it if I sampled it hot, but hot hibiscus teas are so not my jam. I’ll give it one more try and steep longer than the suggested time to see if I can eek any additional flavor out of the blend. If I can’t, I’ll gift it to someone or trash it.
Not going to lie, I bought this tea because I absolutely ADORE macarons, but this tea was a big disappointment for me. One, it’s way too sweet, and also it doesn’t have any taste of that “almond-meringue” taste that macarons always have in them. There are marshmallows in this tea which is a cute touch for its namesake, but I honestly believe this tea would have done better without them. I wouldn’t repurchase. I have a canister of the tea filled about a fourth of the way if anyone would like to trade. I probably won’t drink this tea again.
Flavors: Flowers, Sweet
Backlogging from last night because I was too tired and lazy to dig the laptop back out.
Husband describes this as tasting exactly like Mallow-creme Pumpkin tea. I can kind of see it. It’s very strong in the honeyed sugar notes. I seem to be on the side of other reviewers in thinking it’s more like angel cake of sorts. It needs a long steeping time 10+ minutes in order to taste like anything other than melted marshmallow water, though.
I have noticed it’s not really a consistant cup. Every once in a while I’ll wind up with too much hibiscus in the dry leaf and it can overwhelm the more subtle desserty flavors. I don’t understand why they wouldn’t use beetroot for the coloring instead.
Super sweet, super desserty. I like it well enough, but will probably only keep on hand for the boy.
Definitely smells like buttered rum Life Savers! The taste is very sweet, but still has the underlying hit of tartness from the apples. There is no actual butterscotch type flavor until the finish, with just a hint of it lingering in the mouth. It’s a super-strong fragrance dry (my 6-year-old son walked in the kitchen and wanted to know what smelled so good!), and it was honestly cloying. But the taste is much cleaner than the fragrance indicates. I’m not sure if I’ll reorder, but it is pretty good.
Flavors: Apple, Butterscotch, Sugar, Sweet
The name of this tea alone was enough to make me buy a little bit. The best way to describe it is okay. I like this tea, but I wouldn’t repurchase it.
Warm, it is sweet and good. I get the vanilla and hibiscus flavours coming through. However, as soon as it starts to cool down, there is a very artificial taste to it. I haven’t tried it as an iced tea, but I would have very low expectations. I’m not sure if it is the marshmallow or another ingredient, but that artificial aftertaste is what ruins this tea for me.
I don’t have a Teavana near me, therefore no way to try this without purchasing it. I’m so happy to have received a sample of this from the lovely Ost.
Anything with the word marshmallow and tea involved is definitely worth a try in my books, being the sugarholic and tea-aholic I am, I had to try this! I had a hot cup of this last night and a hot cup this afternoon. I love this! I loved how the tea turned pink, and it wasn’t too sweet. This is a delicious nighttime dessert tea. I’m thinking this is a must order tea in the new year :)
Flavors: Berry, Marshmallow, Sweet
I had a cup of this iced at a local Teavana store, and it was just okay. I’d imagine it tastes better when warm, because the butter rum-esque flavor with an odd tang doesn’t translate well to iced tea. I’ll try it again as a hot tea, but I wasn’t impressed.
Flavors: Butter, Rum
I just realized that I never reviewed this one. :O Have a whole 4oz tin of it even and I never took the time to review it. xD Wow.
A lot of people don’t like this one it seems. Apparently it’s the hibiscus and the tartness. Personally, I don’t mind hibiscus at all. Nor do I mind if something is a bit tart.
This is one of the Teavana teas that I plan to keep on stock always. Definitely one of my favorite Teavana teas.
Also, on a side note I couldn’t go into work today because yesterday I overworked myself my two and a half hours. Which doesn’t sound like a lot. But as time goes on I’m having less and less endurance because my stupid body sucks xD
And last night I kept waking up in tons of pain too, so…just all of today so far has been horrible and I’m pretty disappointed in myself because of it. But this was a nice and relaxing tea to try again today. And still really like it. So hopefully I will stop being so disappointed soon, and just try to relax. But yeah, good tea overall :P
Oh boy …. I was not expecting to like this at all. This is something I never would have bought for myself but was generously given a sample by the lovely Ost.
I love this! This is surprisingly something I might like to purchase, especially during a holiday sale. I had it hot and thought it tasted like a berry rice krispies treat. It was so nice as an afternoon tea when I was feeling snacky and would of course make a wonderful nighttime dessert tea.
Just FYI, I didn’t taste the hibiscus right off the bat but could taste it on the second steeping (although, I never took the bag out on the second cup so….yeah).
