This blend has a lot going on. After reading some of the other tasting notes, I brewed with caution, making sure I didn’t oversteep. 170°F for 2 minutes. The result: a pretty pale pink brew, very little color from the hibiscus, and very little texture. A hint of tart, most of which seems to be coming from the naturally tart fruits like lime and pomegranate – the lime is pretty distinct.

This is tasty. I do wish I tasted more of the green tea. I taste the watermelon, and that makes me very happy because it would seem it might be a bit too delicate in the midst of stronger flavors like hibiscus and lime. But I notice that the lime seems to act as an assist to the watermelon, accenting its sweet, juicy notes. While I can taste the green tea, I wish it was a little stronger – this is much more of a tisane-y tasting cup than tasting of tea. Not bad, actually, it’s very delicious.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.

The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
