I only tried this tea with milk. I will say that the ingredients list was very intriguing! It says Fireside S’mores; however, this does not contain any marshmallows. I know Deb makes organic, wholesome tea blends free from any artificial/natural flavourings. I appreciate this so much about her company! But I am sure it requires more creativity to mimic the flavours of well-known desserts.
I absolutely loved this tea. It smells very smokey, like the fire from a bbq. For preparation, I steeped this on the stove in boiled water. I then added some milk to it, and brought it to a boil. The chocolate had melted and incorporated nicely into the drink.
As far as taste goes, it tastes like a smokey, chocolate, creamy drink! I really enjoyed this tea because I have never had Lapsang Souchong before, and I thought incorporating it into a s’mores inspired tea was super creative!
I would highly recommend this tea! I will repurchase it for sure.
My only constructive criticism for this is that I wish it had more Lapsang Souchong. But this might just be because my taste buds love stronger, bold flavours.
