Tea of the Week for May 10, 2021!

This amazing blend starts with a bracing blend of CTC Assam black teas & is blended with marshmallow root & vanilla beans. The vanilla & marshmallow soften the edgy tea just enough to bring a wonderfully sweet note to the cup. This is the tea to jumpstart your day! Vigorous!

Makes a stellar latte, too!

It’s also VEGAN, gluten-free, allergen-friendly & all natural!

ingredients: black teas, organic marshmallow root, organic vanilla beans, organic cornflower petals & organic natural flavors

Geek Steep S2E10 – Ghostbusters (1984)

This is the tea that I chose to drink during our episode recording for, well, probably obvious reasons. This might just be the closest tea out there for a representation of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man that you could possibly find! I debated heavily doing it for my main pairing, but I ended up finding my other tea first…

It’s a really nice tea though; ooey gooey creamy marshmallow but light and a little airy! It made for a nice gently flavoured tea to sip on throughout our conversation while also being perfectly on theme – and even better because I drank it in a ghost mug! Truthfully, 52Teas has other marshmallow teas I prefer but this one was just unbeatable in this moment!

Good call! I can’t believe GB is that old (ahem, I can’t believe I’m that old).

This blend is remarkable because I like it—and I shouldn’t. I don’t like vanilla, and it features prominently here. I didn’t think that marshmallow had much of a fragrance of it’s own; it does! As soon as you open the packet, you can smell it. The brew is some of the smoothest black tea I’ve ever had: no bitterness, no harshness, no dryness or tickle at the back of the throat, nothing.

If you like vanilla and marshmallow and black tea, this is a really skilful blend and I think you’ll like it.

[Edit] Yes, I forgot about it and totally oversteeped it but it was fine.

Hmm, this wasn’t quite what I was hoping for. There was something a bit off about the flavour – almost a bit of sourness? I’m not really sure. It mostly smelled and tasted pretty good, a variant of creamy vanilla black, except for that weird note. I’d most likely blame the base tea, but we’ll see how a subsequent cup goes before I give this a rating.

ETA: Also to note, I didn’t carefully pay attention to infusion time, so it’s possible that overleafing/oversteeping is a culprit here.

I get that sour note from The Vanilla Marshmallow too (and another one which I am not recalling at the moment). I tend to quick steep with less than boiling water. Any ideas about that sour note and potentially how to minimize or eradicate it altogether?

Sipdown! (27 | 436)

I didn’t really get marshmallow from this one.

I can smell it in the aroma a bit, but I feel like the strong CTC base overpowers it to the point where it’s barely there. It’s mostly a very brisk black base with a touch of savoriness to it. There is perhaps a hint of vanilla there. But then there’s quite a bit of astringency at the tail end of the sip which fights against any creamy or fluffy qualities that may be there.

So not a winner for me. But I’m glad not everything is a winner, as I already have way too much tea as it is! XD

You know I am not sure I steeped this correctly. Hmmm. I can smell the marshmallow in the leaf, but I’m not getting it in the cup. Did I oversteep, understeep? Anger and ancient god of tea brewing? Hmmmm.

Round 2 of battles is this tea, Radioactive Marshmallow vs. Honey Black by DAVIDsTEA. The two were paired because of their black tea bases being paired with a sweeter flavour note. Check you the review for Honey Black here: https://steepster.com/teas/davidstea/69877-honey-black?post=422988

We all know I love me some marshmallow black teas from 52 Teas. This is no exception. It is nothing super complicated. It is clear marshmallow flavour – sweet and fluffy. Atop a medium-bodied base. The two pair well together, making for a smooth, easy drinking tea. Really, really nice!

Honey black is similarly simple and smooth but this tea just edged its way to the win by highlighting flavour over base. Plus, I tend to grab marshmallow teas more often than honey.

Farewell tea! While not my favourite vanilla black from 52 teas, it was a nice one to have in the cupboard especially given my dwindling flavoured teas. Looking forward to the next one in jan? i think it was :)

52Teas

yes, January, there will be a new vanilla black tea. :)
