I’ve read about marshmallow in teas as an ingredient. I’ve never tried one. This one, marshmallow leaf is the only ingredient. This is a bagged herbal. The bag is unbleached, organic, kosher. The box is 100% recycled material. The tag is staple free. The string is long enough to not cause the tag to be drowned when filling the cup.
Each bag contains 1.5 grams of leaf. I prefer 2g for a cup and 3g for a mug. I opted to use a 6 oz cup. Boiling water and 5 minutes later, I get a sunny yellow cup. The leaf has turned very green and feels squishy like a wet marshmallow.
According to the company description, this uses the leaf of the plant, while the marshmallow as I know it evolved from the root. That explains why the taste is nothing like a classic Stay Puft marshmallow. It is sweet but not overly so. It has an almost minty quality to it. This tastes lightly citrus to me, slightly like lemon. While not what I expected, it is rather tasty.
