Let’s talk about campfires for a sec. (Stay with me, this is going somewhere.)
It’s a summer night. You’re sitting around a crackling fire with friends. Lightning bugs are buzzing around, filling the dusk with a whimsical twinkly glow. The smoky woodsiness of the fire fills the air, and you’re blessed out on late-summer good vibes.
And what else has to be there? (This isn’t an easy one, friends.) Toasted marshmallows, of COURSE. And what do you do when you can’t be living in this midsummer fairytale? You sip this tea, of course.
This Assam is bold and malty, as they should be– but it also perfectly captures the perfect, spun-sugar-vanilla flavor of marshmallows. Beyond that, it brings that delightfully toasted, starchy flavor of a toasted marshmallow straight to the surface (especially when served with cream) in a way that’s way more layered than just aspddinf vanilla to a tea and calling it “marshmallow”. 52 Teas has truly knocked it out of the park with this one. If you’re a marshmallow lover (or a campfire enthusiast, as I so clearly am), this one needs to live in your cabinet!
Here’s the scoop!

I love anything marshmallow. Literally anything. Marshmallow scented candles, marshmallows out of the bag, marshmallow fluff sandwiches, toasting marshmallows in the toaster in my kitchen…if it involves marshmallow, i’m down! Anytime I see a marshmallow tea, I am sure to grab it. So, when I saw Marshmallow Krispy Treat black tea on The NecessiTEAs’ website, I immediately snagged myself a tin of it.
I was very intrigued by the fact that there were actual pieces of that rice krispy popped cereal and actual mini freeze dried marshmallows. In smell, it reminded me a lot of Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel by Tea & Tins, but that tea also contained caramel and this one does not. The smell is akin to those mini marshmallows that come in those hot cocoa packets!
This delectable black tea is oh so creamy. It has the world’s most perfect, rich, marshmallow and vanilla flavor. The aroma of the steeped liquid is literally vanilla marshmallows. In taste it is smooth and sweet. I could drink it all day long it is addicting! The marshmallow flavor lingers long after you swallow and my kitchen smells like I was toasting marshmallows! The rice krispy pieces themselves may have been lost on me or perhaps it lends a bit of a toasty flavor to the cup. Either way, I think the vanilla marshmallow pieces may have overpowered them and that is completely okay. I keep smelling the liquid before I take a sip, I am literally basking the gooey marshmallowy goodness! The black tea itself was smooth, sweet, and mellow which really mixed well with vanilla marshmallow flavor.
I have tried my fair share of marshmallow teas, and this one totally takes the cake. Absolute YUM! I would recommend this to any marshmallow lover.
