I had high hopes for this one, because it smells so good, but experience tells me (at least with the old 52Teas genmaicha blends with the new rice…) that it won’t quite live up to its promise. In any case, it’s a great idea for a tea. Inspired, even.

I used 1 tsp of leaf for my cup, and gave it 2.5 minutes in water cooled to around 175 degrees. I’m pleased to discover that there is strawberry, although it’s quite an artificial-tasting, candy-strawberry – it reminds me of Nesquik strawberry milkshake powder! There was quite a lot of marshmallow root in my cup, and its contributed a delicious creaminess. When paired with the light toastiness of the rice, it really does replicate the “marshmallow treat” flavour pretty well.

One of my main complaints with “sweet” genmaicha blends is usually that the green tea base is too prominent and grassy, which makes the whole experience rather odd. Not the case here – the green tea is very subtle, and actually quite difficult to pick out. The genmaicha isn’t too toasty or burnt-tasting, either.

I think this means that I’ve found a 52Teas genmaicha that agrees with me, which is all the more delightful because I didn’t expect to find it here. I would have liked a more natural tasting strawberry, but I’m mostly just pleased that I can taste it and it’s there. This one’s definitely a tea that lives up to its name! I’m going to enjoy this one.

I’ve heard so much about 52Teas on Steepster but never tried any of their tea. So I was excited to see this one in the TTB! Although I can smell the marshmallow sweetness, all I’m tasting is lots of toasted rice, a bit of grassiness from the base and just a hint of strawberry flavor. This one’s not for me, but still glad I had the chance to try it out!

Pretty tasty – this is a nice, toasty genmaicha with just a hint of strawberry sweetness to it. The green tea and rice are still the dominant flavour.

A sample from VariaTEA! Thank you!

I was interested in trying this, because his other marshmallow genmaicha blends always sounded so good… but then I was always let down. Just MEH. You shouldn’t really go by my ratings though, because I always seem to be let down by 52Teas blends.

No offense to them, they just don’t work out for me.
This was another.

I didn’t NOT enjoy drinking it, it was pleasant enough, but it didn’t really stand out.
Nothing super tasty.

The idea is better than the reality. IMHO.

Anyway, still happy to try it!!!

The whole Steepster world should be proud of me because I just made a point of sitting down for an hour or so to crank out a bunch of backlogged tea reviews. They’ve been hanging around forever! I keep empty packages to remind me to log the ones I drank, I’m so pleased to finally be able to throw these ones away!

I am proud of you! It can be a real challenge to keep up with tasting notes. I know that there are a lot of teas I never got entered.


Have you tried this one cold brewed? I find I like 52 flavored genmaichas better that way.

Thanks carol who!

Dustin no I haven’t! I’ve never been pleased with any of them :/

Sipdown! Thank you VariaTea for a sample of this :) I definitely enjoyed it – flavour was much like the original Marshmallow Treat, so fluffy, vanilla, toasty rice goodness (a bit heavy on the toastiness, as reblends seem to have been – I believe the rice has changed), with overtones of sweet candy strawberry. To be honest, there wasn’t enough strawberry for me, but of course I enjoyed the cup and wish I had my own packet squirrelled away, but alas, this came out during that terrible period during which I did not log teas due to Thesis and/or Post-Thesis Recovery (I still drank tea, though, don’t you worry!). I wish my Banana somethingorother genmaicha was actually strawberry. Sigh. Or maybe even that it was Strawberry Banana Marshmallow Treat Genmaicha. With the old version of toasted rice. Yes…..

I received this tea from EvaGrim in a swap. Thank you!

As far as Genmaicha goes I have only ever had the chocolate version from Verdant. I haven’t experimented too much with this type of tea so I am going to leave this one unrated. This looked really pretty in the steeper. The toasted rice, hunks of strawberry, and green tea all mixed together. When I held my nose up to the cup I got the sweet smell of strawberry, and my first sip there were hints of strawberry, but the strawberry quickly faded from the taste. The cup slowly changed to a toasty plasticy taste. I am not sure if this was the rice mixed with the green tea. It was nice, but not something I would crave. I am unsure about this one. I think I would like to try some “normal” Genmaicha" to get a feel for what I should be tasting.

This stuff is really good cold steeped! I get that super refreshing genmaicha toasted rice flavor and a hint of strawberry. I could stand a little more strawberry flavor. I added a little sweetener which works out pretty well.

This tea makes me want to try making Neapolitan marshmallow treats! I know I have seen a recipe for it before…


That sounds like a great idea!


This is too light on strawberry for me whether cold or hot steeped… alas

Another flavored tea from NayLynn! I remain curious about this one and the peanut butter version, even though I wasn’t the biggest fan of the original Marshmallow Treat Genmaicha. Visually, it’s flat green tea leaves with toasted rice, pieces of marshmallow root, and freeze-dried strawberries. It smells like genmaicha and strawberry milk, yum! I steeped a heaping teaspoon for 3 minutes at 175 degrees.

Brewed aroma is mostly just toasty genmaicha with a hint of strawberry. Hmm, this one is also disappointing. The green tea that they use in these blends is too grassy and it totally goes against the whole creamy confection thing they’re going for. And the strawberry flavor here is too tart to mesh well. With agave and soymilk, this tasted basically exactly like the regular Marshmallow Treat Genmaicha.

i usually don’t add milk to my tea

Cameron B.

Me neither. Occasionally I’ll add milk to a flavored tea if it needs it.


Yea this one confuses my mouth


The peanut butter one was the most disappointing of all so don’t even waste your time with that one. I had high hopes for it and it just tasted like grass. And this is coming from someone who liked all the other marshmallow treats.

Cameron B.

VariaTEA, I think I would enjoy these teas a lot more with a different base. The green tea they use is just too grassy and it doesn’t work for me in a “creamy” flavor. :P


I wasn’t a big fan of this myself.

Roswell Strange

Yeah, I agree with VariaTEA – I liked the other Marshmallow Treats but the Peanut Butter was completely dissatisfying. I think I ended up adding Peanut Butter matcha to it to make it drinkable.

My mouth is so confused by this tea. Sweet and tart like fake strawberry but slightly bitter with the green tea and then the smoothness of the brown rice. This is a very interesting tea and we just don’t quite know how to handle it. I love genmaicha and I love strawberries. But this tea perplexes me. It’s good but its a bit too fake? It’s like having my treat and drinking my favorite cuppa all at the same time.

Another 52 tea from the wonderful Marzipan. I couldn’t really taste any marshmallow in this one, just LOTS of kool-aid like strawberry flavor.

Not my favorite, but my son LOVED it.
