I’ve been dying to try this tea—I love melon, it’s probably my favorite fruit flavor, both for teas and just for eating! I was lucky enough to get a sample of this from Kittenna in my swap with her, and then I got some more only a few days later from Stacy with my Butiki order! Of course I was over the moon, but somehow I hadn’t tried it out until today.

I cold brewed this with 1 small scoop in a tall glass of filtered water for about 16 hours or so: I was worried it might be a little weak because I used very little tea, but it is amaaaazing. The cantaloupe is the freshest fruit flavoring I’ve ever had in a tea, it legitimately tastes like fresh cantaloupe juice. The cream is very subtle and adds a hint of softness and a rich mouthfeel, and the white base sparkles. This is an exceptional blend, and of course now I want to brew some up hot just to compare…. but a tea this special is definitely not an everyday luxury.

Ooh, I’m glad you have (at least?) two cups’ worth now to try a cold and a hot brew! I haven’t tried cold-brewing it yet. But isn’t it amazing???

It’s SO GOOD. The cold brew was fantastic, so refreshing which is what you want when it’s this brutally hot out. I bet it’d be great with a sprig of mind!

So glad you love it! I definitely need to try cold brewing it. The nice thing about brewing the Cantaloupe & Cream hot is that it can be steeped several times. On a side note, someone just mentioned to me that Cantaloupe & Cream had made it to #1 for the “Best Teas” on here!

I wonder if my rating had a hand in that XD I think the Bailin Gongfu Black was #1 yesterday, so it was recent (but of course well-deserved!).

Cantaloupe & Cream was #2 yesterday so I think your rating did move it to #1. :)

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
