I got this one in basic grade and robust flavour.

On first sniff after opening the package it is delicious watermelon scent. Almost like watermelon gum or candy. It almost has a caramel scent to it. Not sure if it is supposed to have that or if there has been some contamination.

I made this one a cold shaken in a water bottle. No sweetener added. It is absolutely delicious. Very refreshing and thirst quenching. It tastes like watermelon gummy candies. Not quite authentic watermelon but also not overly artificial either. I get a bit of a creamy, caramel type flavour in the aftertaste, but it is not bad.

I would be interested to to add a bit of sweetener to see what it does to the taste. Also, not sure if ts one is going to be good hot, but I will give it a try anyway.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
