Reblended for the Holidays!
This is one of those teas that disappeared (sold out) within a couple of hours of posting it to the website - so it didn't surprise me at all that it's one of the teas that received a high number of votes when we ran the poll. And this batch tastes every bit as delicious as I remember the original batch tasting! Lot of banana, background of marshmallow, lovely notes of green tea and toasted rice in the background - YUM!
Here's my original description of this tea:
I've never had a banana Marshmallow Treat - I don't even know if such a thing exists. A quick google search yielded no results that appeared like banana marshmallow treat squares but I'll admit that I really didn't look very earnestly for it, mostly because I would think that the banana would be too slick and slippery and wouldn't stick to the marshmallow which binds the crispy rice cereal together. I would think that banana would really mess up the chemistry that goes into the crafting of a marshmallow treat.
Then again, since I've never actually had one (and thus, I've never tried making one) I don't know for certain. Perhaps it could be made with freeze-dried bananas (like the ones that I put in this tea blend) without much trouble.
Anyway, that lengthy introduction is my way of saying that this tea wasn't inspired by something I've actually tried but something I'd love to try should I ever be so fortunate to find such a confection. What inspired me is my appreciation for fresh, sliced bananas atop my crispy rice cereal. One day while eating a bowl of cereal, I thought, wouldn't a banana flavored crispy rice treat be awesome? At some point very soon after that, my thoughts turned to tea (as they often do) and I decided that I MUST create a Banana Marshmallow Treat Genmaicha.
And so I did!
I started with my organic matcha infused genmaicha and added marshmallow root and freeze dried bananas. It's a cuppa yum!
I stayed true to the recipe - so I think you'll be really pleased with the results!
