I’ve held off reviewing this one because I really wasn’t too impressed with it on its own when I first got it.

I vaped for a number of years, and when I did I made my own “eJuice” they call it, the liquid that you put in the vaporizer. eJuice is made of one or both of two neutral bases, nicotine, and food grade flavouring, so I am intimately familiar with the smell and taste of food grade flavouring, and food grade flavouring is exactly what I smelled when I opened my first package of S’mores Chai.

I think that had me pretty turned off and biased right away, which is probably why I wasn’t a huge fan the first time I made it.

It absolutely did become a staple in my mixes where I could fit it though – the ingredients include brittle pieces (sugar, hazelnut, invert sugar), sugar, marshmallow (sugar, corn syrup, modified cornstarch, gelatin, sodium hexametaphosphate, natural and artificial flavour, blue 1), and chocolate chips (cane sugar, cocoa liquor, cocoa butter), so it is GREAT for sweetening up tea mixes! It goes great with anything on the sweet/faux sweet end of the spectrum, and likely a number of unexpected things if you’re brave enough to give it a try.

Real marshmallows, wow!

As always, they do a very, very good job at making it sound mouth watering –

Gooey toasted marshmallows, graham crackers, dark chocolate – it’s no wonder we live for s’mores. Our tempting pu’erh tea adds an extra dash of cinnamon to the campfire classic, so it’s rich, warming and packed with fudgy goodness. Brew it as a frothy tea latte for the ultimate cold-weather indulgence. Don’t worry – there’s s’more where that came from.

I gave it a second try straight before writing this review, and was shocked to find that I actually quite enjoyed it! It was somewhat chocolatey, and a little sweet which is a nice change every so often. It smells a lot like graham crackers to me, and under all that there is actually a very nice dark tea that is pretty easy to detect.

I couldn’t drink this every day by any stretch, but it would be an enjoyable treat every once in a while, and it works really, really well at 25% of a 32oz mix to sweeten it up a little. I’ll be sure to write about some specific mixes soon!

Until next time, happy steeping!
