Whoa, my mom’s cupboard is a time capsule. A couple years ago, I gave her some smaller amounts of my favourites for her to try, including this one. And obviously, she never got to it. So I figured I’d revisit it despite it being quite old. Let’s see what I still think of it.

I’m detecting a weird chemical undertone that I don’t remember before, but perhaps this is due to its age. And I swear I’m tasting a touch of smokiness that I don’t recall in the past. The marshmallow is still there, the chocolate is faint, but overall, it’s severely lacking that special something that I saw in this tea. No graham either.

FWIW, the 95 rating did not even reflect my view of it a year ago, anyway. By then, I was already kind of growing tired of it, and found it to be cloyingly sweet. During that time period, I probably would have rated it as a 70. Funny how people’s tastes change.

I remember getting a chemically thing off this tea when I had it. I think I tend to find that with some of Della Terra’s chocolate teas. Reading your note brings back the smell and taste of this tea completely to me! I almost kinda want that chemically thing in my mouth right now. haha

You’re totally right about their chocolate note! This was the only chocolatey tea of theirs I could tolerate for the longest time, probably because the other flavours distracted me from it. Otherwise, not a fan of that note.

I’m so glad I’m not the only one! (I really feel like a weirdo sometimes when I taste certain things…) I’m telling you, though, you have me totally craving it right now. haha!

That is so funny haha. Merely looking at the bit I had left made me think of how it tasted to me when I first got it. But you didn’t miss out at all. :)
