This is a special tea for me. Not because it is super delicious, but because it was the tea that made me start being an active member here on Steepster! Ashley (no longer active here on Steepster) sold me some of it because she had to get rid of her tea because she was moving. I was really excited to try it because I had read so many cool things about it and I can’t get any David’s tea here in Ecuador. So, one thing led to another, and I am here to stay on Steepster, but, as I realized this morning, I haven’t written a review for this tea yet!!!

The dry blend is really colorful and fruity. There are easily identifiable pieces of all kinds of fruits. Oddly enough, there are even carrots! It smells a bit like a mix of watermelon and banana candy. Very tropical fruity. It doesn’t quite scream watermelon, but it does flaunt its deliciousness as a fruity blend.

Once brewed I taste a bit more banana than watermelon, but watermelon is definitely there. It is super sweet without adding any sugar to it. Once iced, the watermelon shows up a it more. Sweetened it tastes like candy. I think that it could use a tiny bit of tartness to make the flavor stand out and make it seem less like candy water.

I really enjoy this tea, but it must be iced and only once in a while. It is super sweet, so when I want something sweet and fruity, this is exactly what I reach for. :)

I miss Ashley! She’s my FB friend – she’s moved around quite a bit but she seems to be settled and happy now :)

Yeah, this one definitely needs sugar to bring out the melon.

Ninavampi: I bought some tea from Ashley as well, and I enjoyed all of it (my first exposure to 52Teas and DavidsTea)! DaisyChubb: I am glad to hear Ashley is doing well.

Bio

I love tea and have since I was a little girl. Once I could buy my own tea, I began to explore and learn about the extensive and delicious world of tea!

Also, love my French Bulldog (named Sencha…) and my tea oblivious boyfriend. I enjoy ice skating (I am a part time coach), reading, writing, baking, running, and lots of sweets!

My favorite teas tend to be on the sweeter side. Both flavored and plain teas are great to me. Currently going through a flavored tea phase. Enjoying it greatly! : )
