Tea Swap Sample Sipdown Catch-Up! 3 of 4 (11)
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.
