Taster’s Review:

I love marshmallows.  I especially love homemade marshmallows, they’re one of my favorite treats.  (By the way, if you’re looking for an exceptional marshmallow experience, you’ve got to try 240Sweet’s marshmallows!)  So, I was really excited to try this Graveyard Mist from 52Teas which is a blend of green teas, marshmallow root and spearmint!

And what it tastes like, is a minty marshmallow in a cup of green tea!  YUM!  I can almost taste and feel the fluffiness of the marshmallow puff.  I definitely get the whole “Graveyard Mist” thing here – the flavor from the marshmallow root and the hint of malt really give this tea a sort of haunting kind of flavor.  It’s amazing, and demonstrates, once again, that Frank from 52Teas is a tea genius!

The combination of the Chinese Sencha and Yun Wu green teas provides a delightful base for this blend.  It is vegetative, with a taste that is somewhere between sweet grass and mild spinach.  It lends a very fresh taste to the overall cup, a freshness that is further emphasized with the crisp, clean taste of spearmint.  I like that the minty tones are not overwhelming the cup – as mint has been known to sometimes do.  Instead, it sort of lingers in the background.

I love the way the mint and the marshmallow root work together here.  It is almost like a veiled, wispy essence of mint … like a ghostly mint because of the marshmallow and I think this plays to the whole Graveyard Mist concept.

Really unique … and so good, it’s scary!
