drank SBT: Watermelon by 52teas
765 tasting notes

This one is quite sweet and delicious.

Brewed as per instructions for 3 min. It smells and tastes of sweet candy watermelon. Like watermelon bubble gum. I added about 1 TBSP of white sugar to sweeten it. It is not juicy watermelon, but still has a candy watermelon taste. I think if I would have added more sugar it would have been more juicy, but then it would have been too sweet. This is a good iced tea but I am not too sure I would like to drink a lot of it due to the sweet candy like flavour. A nice treat but not something I want to drink a lot of at one time.

Edit: Resteeped for 4 min. Added 1 TBSP sugar. I think the resteep is better. There is still the watermelon taste but it is more blunted. I can taste more of the black tea.

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.
