Enjoyed this throughout the day today. Nice and malty, with some stone fruit and chocolate notes. Just a bit roasty, with the roasted flavor complimenting the natural sweetness nicely.

I love Marshmallow Treat by The Necessiteas (and marshmallow flavored teas in general), so was quite excited about this one. Both strawberry and genmaicha are winners for me, so I thought this was a must-try. There aren’t nearly as many marshmallows in this as in the regular Marshmallow Treat (which I guess is an easy fix because I could just add some), but the flavor is definitely impacted because of it. It’s much more like a genmaicha with a bit of strawberry. I didn’t add any sweetener, but I think doing so next time will amplify all of the flavors.

I love marshmallow flavored teas, so I’ve been wanting to try this one for quite awhile. I was so happy to have grabbed a bag when it was restocked. It’s packed full of sugar- brown sugar, marshmallows, sugar crystals, and it pretty much tastes as such. Not really a marshmallow flavor to me, and actually tastes like the sweetest Taiwanese milk tea you’ve ever had. It’s mostly brown sugar. I didn’t dislike it, it just wasn’t quite what I was hoping for. My boyfriend, who has a massive sweet tooth, loved it. So, this will be reserved for him.

The leaves were smaller and more broken than the standard autumn tieguanyin I got in the same order from Verdant. I preferred that one much more. This had similar lilac and orchid notes, but was much more subdued.

I found this to be a bit too mild, no matter the temperature or length I brewed it. Very strong roasted note, and not much else going on. Not terrible, but not something I wanted to steep more than a couple times.

Cold-brewed this one and was glad to have done so. Not much of a kiwi flavor, but a bit of strawberry coming through the green rooibos. I much prefer green rooibos over red, and it always lends itself to iced tea nicely.
