I really like this one. It reminds me of Decadence but with a nutty taste. I didn’t get sunflower seeds like others. It’s probably a different blend than before since my batch is recent. I got a nice almond note from it instead. The marshmallows give it a very light sweet taste with added creaminess. It didn’t seem as dark chocolatey as Decedance but more between milk chocolate and dark chocolate which I liked. The blend of Laoshan, Assamica & Golden Yunnan really works well and it was delicious and had a nice malty note.

I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed it! Thank you!

I have decided to omit the sunflower seeds on my future blends – I got a variety of reviews on the sunflower seeds: some liked them but most did not. For me personally, I liked their salty contribution to the overall cup but because they go stale too quickly, I decided it would be better to just not include them in blends from this point forward.

Bio

Longtime casual tea drinker. In the past, mainly Matcha, Gyokuro, Sencha, Genmaicha… Etc. I like all teas: Green, oolong, black & pu’erh (prefer ripe over raw).

Chanoyu (for matcha prep) and Gongfu cha (for other types of tea) are the main ways I prepare my tea (Gaiwan, Yixing teapot, Kyusu). I drink all tea… Usually unflavored. This past year, I’ve tried many flavored now because of all of you lol. As long as there aren’t artificial sweeteners, it’s all good.

Favorite stores: TeaVivre, What-Cha, Mandala Tea, 52Teas, Whispering Pines, Bird & Blend, Yunnan sourcing, White2Tea, Lupicia.

The flavors I dislike: Artificial sweetener, lavender, violet, any strong floral-perfumey tea; cantaloupe, papaya, honeydew, rose, licorice, anise, jasmine, any mints, leather.

Favorite flavors: Citrus fruits (especially grapefruit & tangerines), granny smith apple, bananas, guava, mango, tamarind, watermelon, stonefruits, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, milk, cinnamon, creme, bread/pastry, nuts, toasted, roasted.

I generally don’t add anything to my teas unless they are flavored, then I may add a splash of milk.

As I explore, my ratings may shift. 90+ generally means I’ll keep it on my shelf.
