I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting to enjoy this one. But I do so love melon, any kind of melon, so I couldn’t resist picking some up.

The scent is definitely melon. The taste is actually quite nice – not too heavy. There’s an initial taste of melon with an aftertaste of mate. I’m not a mate fan unfortunately but I’m still able to enjoy this cup. I can imagine this would be amazing iced. Perhaps I’ll pop the remainder of this mug in the fridge.

Update: Tried this one chilled and the mate comes through much more so this one will be a pass for me. The melon flavour would great in a green or white tea I imagine.

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs I’m working on at a snail’s pace, but so far I’m not loving them. Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
