Toasted Marshmallow

I think this might become one of my Winter favourites!

The details:

Type: Black

Bought at: David’s Tea

Description: Everyone loves a camping trip in the fall.  Fresh air, beautiful scenery, hungry bears – ah, the great outdoors.  Well, okay, we’ll admit it.  We’re only in it for the marshmallows.  Nothing beats a freshly toasted marshmallow straight from the campfire.  But what if you want to satisfy your sweet tooth without going camping?  Try this tea.  It’s a sweet, toasty black tea blend with cinnamon, brittle and… you guessed it!  Mini marshmallows.  Now you can enjoy your favourite outdoorsy treat without a hungry bear in sight.

What I think:

This tea smells heavenly.  The combination of spices makes me want to cuddle up by a fire and perhaps toast the mini marshmallows in this blend.  There’s a little bit of an odd alcohol-like scent amid the spices, but it’s not overwhelming.

The tea steeps to a cloudy orange-brown, and the smell dwindles down to a light cinnamon scent.  Sipping the tea, I taste cinnamon first, with a touch of sugar – the marshmallow or brittle, I assume.  Although the tea is slightly creamy as is, I decided to try it out with some milk… And it’s incredible.  A perfect, toasty winter blend for a cold night.  The tea is sweet enough as is, and I find that adding sugar or honey changes the taste too much for my liking.

This tea has officially found a place among my favourites.  Looks like I’ll have to buy a tin of this tomorrow!  If you want a winter tea, something to look forward to on a snowy morning, this would be it.  It’s the perfect blend of cinnamon, brittle and adorable marshmallows!
