I’m going to start this with request for forgiveness. I waited to write this review till after I bought the very last pouch. I wasn’t going to buy any more tea for a while. I made a small Plum Deluxe purchase and subscribed to their box and the 52teas box this month so I really shouldn’t have… but you see I actually had a feeling I’d want some more of this from the moment I read the description and almost did before I even took a single sip. I kept checking the stock and it was down to one pouch remaining when my monthly box came this morning. It just sounded too perfect and I wasn’t let down.
I’m always unsure of how to eyeball measurements on dragonwells, I should put batteries in my little scale but for today I just winged it and put a few small pinches with a blackberry and a half into the infuser till it looked right and it worked. I was surprised at how dark it brewed for a dragonwell, until I remembered the blackberry and then it all made sense.
The flavor profile is balanced, the blackberry is juicy and the marshmallow is creamy without overbalancing the tea itself. I had half the cup hot and the other half at room temp after taking an unplanned nap. The second half was even tastier than the first with the marshmallow sweetness moving to the front and a bit of vanilla flavor peaking out. I’m debating trying to get a second steep out of the leaves or cold brewing them.
Thank you Anne for doing such an amazing job! If you didn’t get a chance to snag a pouch I’m sorry I was greedy. Vote for it for the Christmas box if it’s an option.
