There are teas in my collection I know I can rely on and this is one of them. I come back to this tea when I want something a little bit sweet and a little bit toasty. I’m typically not someone who loves green teas, but this one I can always enjoy. The dry leaf smells like green tea ice cream and after water has been added, I smell more roasted caramel popcorn. Mmmm…
Sipping.. definitely a bit more roasty than expected. The marshmallow pops up in the background, but it’s actually more of a sweetness and not that specific gooey marshmallow flavor. I would like for it to be just a bit more present since it’s such a great flavor. The green tea is also there and lends a bit of grassiness to the roasted rice and marshmallow, but it’s more mild which I appreciate. I think this tea wouldn’t be the same if the green tea took over and dominated the other flavors.
Even though this tea doesn’t taste explicitly like marshmallow treats, I think this is quite possibly the closest you can get. It’s sweet, satisfying and just so tasty. I hope this one is reblended again and again!
Note from Anne @ 52Teas: This tea has graduated to D’s Teas – which is 52Teas’ permanent collection. It will be reblended again and again – and is available now!

Another overwhelming fan favorite!
I’m also a big fan of this tea. I was one of the lucky ones to get one of the pouches from the first batch which was a blend of Genmaicha plus Genmaicha Uji which is Genmaicha that’s been infused with Matcha. So, in an effort to recreate that stunning first batch, I blended an Organic Japanese Genmaicha and an organic Japanese Genmaicha with Matcha (Or Genmaicha Uji). I really prefer it with the Uji, the little bit of Matcha adds a really nice creaminess to the overall cup.
To this, I added marshmallow root and all-natural, organic flavors.
It’s a cuppa yum!
