My daughter picked this one out. She thought it would make a watermelon. :) (She’s three.) Okay, it’s good, but I don’t know if I made it right. I’m getting a vegetal/watermelon taste, which isn’t what I expected. The watermelon is great. It’s not sweet, just the flavor is present. My husband even likes it, but added Splenda to his.

I used the Breville and brewed it at 205/4 min with the basket cycle to agitate it. I just dumped the whole packet in and then added 40 oz. of water (which is as high as you can do a tea cycle with the Breville.) I figured the amount of water doesn’t matter all too much as it’s going to be iced anyway, which adds more water. I’m just not certain why I’m getting such a vegetal taste to the tea. Any ideas?

She saw the picture on the front, plus we just purchased our veggie plants for our garden, so I guess she thought one would instantly grow. She’s come up to the counter and peered into the teapot about four or five times now, hoping…
