We launched a couple teas last week inspired by late summer nights/the end of summer and of course a collection like that wouldn’t feel complete without something inspired by camping! Queue… Toasted Marshmallow!
Long, long DT fans might remember that we carried a tea in the past called Toasted Marshmallow – just to be super clear, this is not the same tea. It’s a new tea/new approach to that flavour entirely. Specifically we imagined what a rooibos based version of S’mores Chai might look like. As such, this isn’t just a marshmallow blend – it’s also definitely a chocolate blend. Very creamy and smooth milk chocolate with just a bit of that burnt sugar/caramelized sugar gooey marshmallow goodness!
I’ll be honest, I’m not personally enamored with this blend because I just find it too chocolate forward personally – I would want wwaaaayyyy more marshmallow in a “Toasted Marshmallow” blend. There’s a lot of power to a name, and I find this one creates a very specific image that the tea doesn’t perfectly mesh with. Plus I also just don’t love chocolate teas very much. So, it’s more of a matter of personal preference and interpretation…
That said, I do think fans of S’mores Chai who want something similar without either the punch of caffeine or the pu’erh base will probably be really happy with this as an alternative. It’s a nice sweet and indulgent rooibos blend, for those looking for one.
Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts and feelings regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
