drank Eggnog Marshmallow Treat by 52teas
2876 tasting notes

I had such high hopes for this one :( Normally I find 52Tea really nails their genmaicha flavours, but this one had no eggnog (or nutmeg) or marshmallow. It tasted like any plain genmaicha. Granted, the green was smoother than most green bases, but even smelling the looseleaf bag I can’t smell anything different. Hopefully I got a weird bag and other people get a flavour packed one. No eggnog, nutmeg, creamy, dessert, or marshmallow notes at all in mine.

Flavors: Rice, Smooth, Toasted Rice

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 5 min, 15 sec 3 g 19 OZ / 550 ML

It’s not strong in mine, but it’s definitely present, and I suspect that if I didn’t have a clean palate, the flavours could be lost entirely.

Bio

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
