From Dessert by Deb

I can’t think of a single birthday party growing up that didn’t have a plate or pan piled high with marshmallow crispy squares! The toasty rice cereal, the gooey marshmallow…ah, it’s a forever classic to end all forever classics and it’s a dessert that never goes out of style no matter what age you are. This warm and sweet green tea blend is your sweet genmaicha with sencha green tea, toasted coconut for that hit of creaminess, a sprinkling of coconut palm sugar, and toasty popped rice! Enjoy a mug of this sweet and savoury dessert and let nostalgia take over.

Certified organic ingredients: Green Tea, Popped Roasted Rice, Coconut, Toasted Coconut, Palm Sugar

Sipdown! (17 | 90)

I requested this as a sample with one of my orders. I never seem to be that impressed with these marshmallow treat genmaicha teas, so I figured I would try a smaller size. I love that Deb lets me pick my own free samples, she’s the best! I saw on Instagram today that she’s planning to ship out the subscription boxes sometime next week, squeee!

Anyway! I actually do enjoy this one. It’s not really a marshmallow square to me, more of a mildly coconutty genmaicha. I suppose the creaminess of the coconut does sort of emulate marshmallow a teeny bit, but it’s not quite there for me.

But I do like it! I’m not sure I’d feel the need to keep it around in addition to a plain genmaicha though… But would definitely recommend it to coconut lovers! I’m honestly shocked at how low the rating is. o.o

I think I want to request this as a sample again! The first time that I tried it, it tasted oily to me? Like coconut oil? But I might have used a water temperature that was too high? Glad you liked it however! :)

There is a lot of coconut in it, so that makes sense. I don’t remember noticing it with my packet though.

Advent Calendar Day 3

It was exciting to see a Dessert by Deb tea in today’s Advent packet from Amanda! I’ve been seeing this brand around Steepster a lot lately but haven’t placed an order for myself yet. Having tried a couple of 52Teas rice krispy treat-inspired blends in the past, I was expecting the flavors of popped rice and marshmallow. I am getting a taste of toasty rice from the genmaicha but the overall taste is a mouthful of creamy coconut. Which I don’t object to at all…I love coconut!…but it certainly doesn’t remind me of a rice krispy treat. Not sure how to rate this, honestly. It doesn’t match the name, but it’s a pretty delicious coconut genmaicha!

I found this one confusing as well! Thought you may enjoy it, since coconut is the dominant flavor.

Inkling

Yep, once I got over the fact that it tasted nothing like what I expected, I did really enjoy it. :)

Cameron B.

Deb seems to be a coconut fan, she puts it in everything! XD

Silent Kettle

Yeah, I thought I would love this one too, but it left me feeling a bit confused. I think it could improve if it had some tiny marshmallows in it or something! :)

I absolutely love Deb! And I wanted to like this tea. When I read the ingredients I was like, toasted rice, toasted coconut, sugar, and green tea – YES! Those all sound like ingredients I would love.

I should preface this by saying that I feel neutral about genmaicha. I have only had it one other time; I neither strongly liked nor disliked it. But it could have just been the brand I had. Or I might just not like genmaicha? I think I have to try it more to make a firm decision.

However, I unfortunately did not like this tea as much as I wanted to. When I first sipped it, the coconut took prominence over the rest of the flavours. Deb also only uses natural ingredients to make her blends (which I love), but when steeped, the coconut releases oils. It gives the tea a heavy, oily mouthfeel which I dislike.

However, while I was drinking it, the coconut note died down a bit to let the rest of the flavours shine. I definitely taste the toasted rice and earthy, green notes.

I love Deb, and I want her to improve and thrive! <3

I think to improve its current formula; it needs more sugar (although I understand why Deb used it sparingly since some people might want a dessert-inspired treat, without it being overly sweet, and I can easily add it to the tea at home), ONLY toasted coconut or even no coconut, and vanilla notes. Instead of palm sugar, maybe Deb could add icing sugar to make it taste more like a marshmallow?

Given the ingredients, I obviously never expected it to live up to its namesake. I think this tastes like a genmaicha, with a strong hint of coconut.

52teas does a version of this that is very popular. Unfortunately it looks like it’s not in stock right now, but you might keep an eye out. :)

Silent Kettle

Thank you so much, Cameron!! I have actually never heard of 52teas before! But I will be sure to keep an eye out! :)

Cameron B.

She does a new blend for every week (hence the name) and has a monthly subscription. I’ve just signed up for it again so you’ll likely see some notes from me soon!

Silent Kettle

Ou! Sounds interesting. I will be sure to check out her company, thank you! :)

I don’t care for this at all, unfortunately. The genmaicha and coconut combo is just not working, and definitely can’t be considered a marshmallow crispy treat. I’ll be sticking with the Necessiteas and 52Teas versions.

This tea is a coconut monster. If it was a chimera it would have a coconut head, a coconut body, and a coconut tail (three coconuts joined together, gasp!). I kid you not, coconut is listed three times in the ingredients section (coconut, toasted coconut, palm sugar).

The pairing of toasted coconut and roasted rice in a genmaicha is a nice one. I’m just a little unnerved because I thought 52Teas Marshmallow Treat was a candy tea. The palm sugar and the 500 coconuts present in this blend are zealously excited to show me all the ways in which I was mistaken.

For the most part I enjoyed this tea, but there is something present that is making my mouth dry and my throat sore; I may possibly be sensitive to something in the blend (I can’t see it being coconut, but who knows). I’ll try this again both hot and cold and see if I get the same results.

Haha, I’m waiting with bated breath to try the teas from my order with Sil and VariaTEA – though sounds like I’m in for a sugar rush! Guess I shouldn’t be surprised given the company name. How would you compare the sweetness level to some of the more sweet DT blends (like Cotton Candy, etc.)? I know DT has a rep for sweet teas – is it comparable?

CrowKettle

I’ve only tried this (palm sugar), and am currently sipping on the Matcha Cream Puff (maple crystals)… but I think they’re comparable? The Matcha Cream Puff in particular reminds me of Cardamom French Toast despite not having much in common besides being sweet.

CrowKettle

Although, I just tried Unicorn Dream and that deserves its own sweetness league. lol

Roswell Strange

Yeah, 100% agree with you on that one!

OMGsrsly

I wish I could use emojis here. I’m laughing so much at your description! IDK, is there room for more coconut?

Mastress Alita

I can only imagine the kind of monster this would become if all that coconut went rancid at once…

CrowKettle

@Mastress Alita, that is definitely one of greatest fears. These coconut teas are not going to stick around for long!

CrowKettle

and, yes, I would love emojis! Another thing for me to abuse on here! XD
