Thank you Kittenna for this sample. :)

It’s just after 1am at the start of the new year here in the UK so Happy New Year everyone!

Watermelon is my second favourite food ever (after cookie dough) so I am very excited in trying this blend. I’m still waiting for it’s long 7 minute steep (taken from Davids Tea website) but so far it has taken a lovely pink tone that does look like watermelon juice.

The raw tea mix has a somewhat appley fragrance which was unexpected. Once brewed it smells like watermelon…as if by magic it truly does. It has the same watery, weak yet sweet fragrance that watermelon has.

Wowsers! WATERMELON!!! It tastes like warm watermelon juice. It’s mild and weak and I wish it was a little stronger but it has the same fresh juiciness you would expect from watermelon. It does have an edge of fruitiness behind it..a sort of sweet and sour apple cocktail. Reading the ingredients list I would never guess it contained carrot or beetroot but I suppose they help to keep it sweet.

It’s a very nice blend and it is watermelon like but I was hoping it would be a little stronger. I think this would be tastier as an iced tea with lots of crushed ice and small watermelon pieces for extra flavour. A good effort though :)

Profile

Bio

I am 26 years old from Leicester, England. I have been drinking tea for many years now and have been getting more and more appreciative about good tea’s. I like to try new and exciting tea’s and import regularly as a treat.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I am also an avid reader and enjoy curling up with a book (mostly crime, horror, thriller, literature genres) in one hand and a cup of tea in the other.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.
