In the meantime, here’s a real treat. I was GOING to make a peanut butter marshmallow treat genmaicha for this week, but that just struck me as too savory and I need something bright and sweet right about now, so here then is our very popular marshmallow treat genmaicha paired up with a kick of sweet strawberry! I will be really surprised if this one doesn’t sell out very quickly, so don’t drag your feet. And let me know what you think about the peanut butter marshmallow treat idea.

When I stopped by the 52Teas website to get the information I needed to start this review of their Strawberry Marshmallow Treat Genmaicha, I was shocked to see that this tea hasn’t yet sold out! How is that possible?
This is absolutely YUMMY! I can’t remember if I’ve ever actually had a strawberry flavored marshmallow treat. I seem to recall that marshmallow treats were one of those treats that my step-mother would actually make once in a while, so, it was a treat that I had on occasion and more often than I do now, because I prefer making cupcakes to marshmallow treats. But I don’t recall ever having a strawberry marshmallow treat.
Whether I have or haven’t, I will say that this tea tastes just like I’d expect a strawberry marshmallow treat to taste. The strawberry is sweet and a little bit tart. I taste marshmallow, notes of vanilla, and the toasted rice in the Genmaicha gives it just the right ‘rice’ note.
The green tea tastes sweet and buttery. It doesn’t have a strong vegetative or grassy taste to it, but I do taste some slight vegetal notes. Mostly I get that warm, toasty, nutty flavor that I typically would experience from a Genmaicha.
Like I said before, I’m shocked that this tea hasn’t sold out yet! I highly recommend getting yourself a pouch of it before it does!
