Toasted Marshmallow was my first DavidsTea tin that I have ever bought, and with good reason! The obvious reason, that it was the first tea bag I had ever finished, and also because the taste was pretty awesome.
I had quite the interesting first experience drinking this tea, I had made it and went to go sit in my room with my window open just a crack…I took my first sip and that’s when my neighbors began a bonfire. Perfect timing.
The site describes it as:
“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 favorite outdoorsy treat without a hungry bear in sight.”
With ingredients of :
- Black tea
- Brittle pieces
- Roasted kukicha green tea
- Natural flavourings
I’m not going to lie the main reason I bought this was due to the marshmallows, first because of the kid in me, and secondly because I have never heard of a tea with marshmallows…I was apprehensive to see if it mingled well together. One of the other reasons I picked up this tea is because I love black teas, out of my large collection of teas nine are black.
The allspice smell is in the for front (to me), but I am also able to smell the black tea base. I am also able to get a faint smell of the kukicha green tea. After brewing though I am only able to really smell the allspice and cinnamon.
The liquor to this tea is a very light tan or brown color.
When I drink this tea I am mostly tasting the allspice, but I am also tasting a marshmallow after taste. There’s no “punch” though to the taste, and you can’t fully taste a “spice” it’s more of a mellow allspice taste.
Overall this has become my favorite tea since my old favorite has been discontinued from another store. I am quite pleased with my first tin purchase.
