I bought this one from iheartteas through the out of retirement effort with 52teas.

It smells tart. I can definitely smell raspberry, but the watermelon isn’t yet present.

170/3 min. The sencha tastes divine. It has a richness that blends so well. It’s thick and slightly buttery. The tea is very tart from the raspberry. Very tart. It makes me pucker. I cannot taste watermelon. I’m going to try again at a shorter steep time.

Preparation
170 °F / 76 °C 3 min, 0 sec

The watermelon is light but it is there. Maybe try 170 at 2:30 just a thought and if that doesn’t work the iced is great. Just a thought :-)

Love this tea dearly. <3

How long do you steep it? I was thinking of dropping to one minute to see if it reduces the raspberry tartness.

I never noticed any tartness, and I think I steeped for the same time…
