I bought a sample of this on sale with my small order a while ago. The idea of a blueberry marshmallow blend was irresistible. (It also sounded pretty close to my beloved Peachy Keen.) The blend also has chamomile, lavender, vanilla and green rooibos. I used less leaves than Anne suggested on the package — a teaspoon and a half rather than five grams. I don’t see any larger pieces of marshmallow root in the blend, which might be why there wasn’t much marshmallow flavor. I really wanted the flavor to be mostly marshmallow and blueberry, maybe a hint of lavender. But sadly, at least this serving was mostly tasting like chamomile. I know at least three blueberries went into the infuser. I could have done without the chamomile in this blend altogether. I really loved the IDEA of the flavor combination of blueberry, vanilla, marshmallow and lavender coexisting but the chamomile just takes over.
I was drinking this while trying to get lots of DVRing done and didn’t fall asleep, so not too many zzzz’s. (Also, this snow has meant the dvr hasn’t even been recording anything for THREE DAYS – NO SIGNAL TV black out… but at least I can still watch things on the dvr. ALSO, if gritty, intense, and dark comic inspired shows are your thing, Deadly Class is an amazing piece of work… I feel like all I’ve been watching now is gritty comic shows… maybe all the other genres I watch aren’t airing at the moment.)
