Hey, I thought you mentioned that this one can be resurrected with a longer steep? That’s no longer enough to redeem it?

Finished this one off yesterday – enjoyable cup from crowkettle but i think i prefer david’s tea in a pinch since it’s easier access all in all.

CrowKettle

.. but the marshmallow root D:

I generally settle for David’s Tea too for ease of access, but I’ve developed a slight marshmallow root addiction over the years which has made me extremely passionate on this subject. :P

The pure marshmallow root and marshmallow root/leaf teas I’ve tried all taste like dry grass and dusty roots. I’m not convinced marshmallow root really gives any marshmallow flavour, I think marshmallow flavouring and vanilla are usually used.

CrowKettle

I think you’re right, but weirdly enough it’s the dusty grass/earthy quality that I love. I miss the depth it provides when a tea only uses vanilla/dessert flavouring. It’s definitely not a overly sweet thing in it’s own right- possibly more of a textural thing?

Evol Ving Ness

hahhaha, marshmallow root addiction. Add vanilla and I am there too.

Sample from crowkettle this is a tasty milk oolong, but it’s nothing knock your socks off.

Delicious afternoon tea. Added a pinch of sugar to this and it certainly brings out a bit more of the caramel deliciousness. I think i prefer it without though to have more of the apple taste.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
