Lots of popped rice in this one! Fun! Toasty as soon as it hits the water but now I’ve lost the maple aroma that dominates the dry blend. I don’t taste marshmallow or maple. Bummer.
Flavors: Maple, Toasty

Tea of the Week for November 28, 2016!
One thing we’re known for here at 52Teas is our Marshmallow Treat inspired teas. Everyone seems to love ‘em – myself included! – so don’t try to fix it if it ain’t broke, right? Since we’re right in the middle of autumn (my favorite time of year!) I thought a yummy flavor to focus on would be maple – so why not a Maple Marshmallow Treat Genmaicha? Sounds really good, right?
I started with our organic Matcha infused Genmaicha and added maple essence and marshmallow root to create a marshmallow treat experience that’s perfect for fall!
This tea is all organic, VEGAN (yes, vegan!), gluten-free and allergen-free – not to mention sweet and absolutely delightful! Those of you who love maple like I do are going to LOVE this tea!
organic ingredients: green teas, popped brown rice, marshmallow root, calendula petals and natural flavors.
At 52teas.com, you will find unique, hand-blended artisan loose leaf teas: a new limited edition creation every week of the year. We pride ourselves on offering truly unique, one-of-a-kind tea blends that you won’t find anywhere else.

Another 52teas marshmallow genmaicha from VariaTEA!
Wow, does the dry leaf have a powerful aroma… Super strong maple!
This has sort of a pancake syrup flavor. There is maple, but it’s more of a somewhat artificial version than a real maple syrup flavor. That combined with the buttery and toasty genmaicha is making me think of frozen waffles with butter and pancake syrup.
There is a slight alcoholic note here too – I’m assuming because of the large amount of maple flavoring used. I could do without that aspect of it, but it’s not overpowering.
Overall, it’s tasty and I’m glad I got to try it. I probably wouldn’t purchase this one, though. I seem to have difficult finding the marshmallow flavor in these blends, unfortunately.
Flavors: Alcohol, Artificial, Butter, Maple, Pancake Syrup, Sweet, Toasted Rice
I love that the maple isn’t overpowering- just a nice highlight to the roasty and grassy matcha genmaicha! There’s a hint of something boozy going on too.
I still prefer my original Marshmallow Treat but this was a fun rendition that particularly pleased the mother.
Flavors: Grass, Maple Syrup, Marshmallow, Toasted Rice
I have been airing out my bag of this since I opened it in December. It has a horrible chemical smell to the dry leaf. Luckily, there is no chemically flavours in the steeped tea. I’m really not sure why my bag ended up being like this. I’ve never had a bad bag from 52Teas before and wouldn’t hesitate to order from them again (once I have my cupboard under control). I think this is just a one-time thing.
As for the flavours, the toasted rice and maple go great together. The sweetness really brings everything together. Some nice marshmallow and creamy notes add to the rich dessert appeal.
Two genmaichas in the 12 Teas of Christmas box makes me one sad girl. What’s worse is this has maple in it, another flavor I don’t care in tea. I didn’t make it through the cup because I didn’t want to chug it. Quite frankly, that’s the only way I would’ve finished it.
It’s not for me, but the marshmallow treat genmaichas are quite popular. I would recommend it if you enjoy genmaichas, like a nice mellow marshmallow note, and are a fan of maple-flavored teas.
I wish there weren’t two of them in this particular sampler box. There were two in last year’s box as well, so maybe it’s just a thing…
Roasted tea and maple, this is simply delicious.
No Question, this is a maple tea. As soon as you open it, you are hit with a very strong scent of maple. The brewed tea is overwhelmingly maple flavored. Luckily, the tea is not sweet, and the roasted genmaicha flavor gives it depth so the maple isn’t overpowering.
If you like maple, and I mean really like maple, you will love this tea.
Oh, and the marshmallow? Non- existent. It could be hiding behind the maple, but who knows.
ICED or HOT?
Surprisingly, both are equally delicious. Hot, it is a delicious winter treat, making me thing of boiling syrup out in a snow covered woods.
Iced it is cold leftover pancakes (yum).
Flavors: Maple Syrup, Toasted Rice
So 52teas ran out of marshmallow treat genmaicha, but I saw maple marshmallow treat genmaicha so I decided to give it a try! I do like maple and I like marshmallow and I like genmaicha so I said why wouldn’t I like this?! The smell of the dry leaf is VERY MAPLE. It smells almost too maple. I was scared that it was going to be sickeningly sweet. But I went ahead and steeped it and gave it a try. It thankfully didnt taste as maple as it smelled. It was very lightly flavored and I added just a pinch of agave syrup which made it even yummier. My whole kitchen smelled like maple syrup which was nice lol. I do really like this tea and I would/will buy it again if they aren’t out. It was really nice and light.
Flavors: Maple, Maple Syrup, Sweet, Toasted Rice
This is a queued tasting note.
Drank this one at work during my week without internet access…
I feel like I genuinely liked this one more the second time around; both the maple and marshmallow notes just seemed richer/stronger to me. The roastiness could have used a bit of a boost to compete with the sweetness of the maple, but it was still a very solid cup. For some reason it tasted a touch boozey though?
Also shared it with my two assistant managers: one loved it, and even asked for the website I got it from. The other not so much; he didn’t like the pairing of such sweet flavours and roasty Genmaicha. Buzzkill…
