drank Rooibos Savannah by SpecialTeas
2930 tasting notes

I can’t remember which one of you fine folks mentioned mini marshmallows as a tea additive, but when my husband brought home a container of mini chocolate marshmallow bits, I decided to get a little adventurous.

This is a nice chocolatey-almondy rooibos on its own, so I reasoned it would welcome said marshmallow bits. It wasn’t bad, but there’s something a little, uh, sharpish about the rooibos flavor that doesn’t combine smoothly. Two separate flavors on your tongue instead of one lovely smooth chocolate mishmash. Does that make sense?

However, I shall persist to find my favorite marshmallow friendly tea. (Doesn’t that sound like a rotten task? Doggone it. More teas to taste. More marshmallows to chomp.)

I think we all got the idea from Stacy of Butiki Teas, who once mentioned getting marshmallows for her blends and polishing off a bag before ever getting anywhere near the tea. Since then, I’ve read a bunch of tasting notes involving the addition of marshmallows to the steeped tea to discover a new flavour or enhance an existing one. I actually got a bunch of different, flavoured marshmallows (toasted coconut, strawberry, etc.) to try this myself, but, um, I ate them all before I got to the tea. =(
