Although the holiday season has (sadly) passed, this tea still caught my eye. Mostly because it included mini marshmallows and gold ball sprinkles. I am a sucker for anything that includes marshmallow. Upon inspection of the dry leaf, I could smell the caramel and marshmallow notes. The dry leaf itself was very pleasing to the eye, as it contained “Star of David” shaped sprinkles, gold balls, mini marshmallows, and caramel squares. I liked that it contained actual marshmallow and caramel pieces because I hoped that that would add extra flavor and creaminess to the cup. While I don’t mind when a tea just contains flavor, I think adding actual pieces of fruit or candy really pushes the flavor further and gives it an extra “something”.
I steeped this blend with near-boiling water for about 4 minutes. I also added a spoonful of agave, which is usual for me. Once steeped, the liquid smells just like the mini marshmallows that come with those hot cocoa packets. It is literally shimmering with gold sprinkles, which adds such a pretty and festive flair. The taste is very smooth and pleasing and I can clearly point out that this tea contained marshmallows. The caramel is in the background; but just as I had hoped, the caramel pieces added a sweet creaminess to the tea. I feel as if the agave really brought these flavors out and accented them well, so I would suggest sweetening the tea just a bit.
This tea was really easy to drink, and it was gone in minutes! It was very smooth, sweet, and festive. The flavor of the marshmallow lingers long after the cup is gone. I really cant help but liken it to those mini marshmallows in the hot cocoa packs, it really does taste exactly like them! The combination of marshmallow and caramel along with the black tea was delicious. I am glad to have stumbled across this company and cant wait to try more of their teas. I have a feeling this one wont last very long!

I will admit it. . I have an addiction to The NecessiTeas. I love their handmade blends and the unique teas they offer. And this is just one of many that has recently captured my heart!
When a tea has marshmallows in it, it is an instant buy. There is no thought of “Do I really need another tea?” The tea instantly goes into my cart. So when Marshmallow Krispy Treat showed up at my door, I was crazy happy. I mean mix my love of marshmallows with my love of The NecessiTeas. . .What could be better?
This hand blended tea has a black tea base with freeze dried mini marshmallows, rice krispes, and natural flavors. I couldn’t wait to steep this tea up. I prepped the tea per the recommended steeping suggestions- 212F- steep 5 minutes and took a sip.
Delicious! Creamy sweet notes with a lovely malty finish. The marshmallows really do add that marshmallow treat feel. I don’t really get much out of the rice krispies but I can definitely get the nod to my favorite sticky treat. It even smells like a marshmallow treat!
This tea is currently available and honestly, if you haven’t tried The NecessiTeas I encourage you to. Their teas are hand blended with love and I haven’t had a bad one yet. They are fresh, quality, and deliver a solid flavor. Plus you get a lovely tin with your tea. Really fabulous tea from a wonderful tea company!
