I have for years wanted to try a cucumber tea. I was thinking about buying the cucumber tea from Tea Forte, but I couldn’t wrap my head around the price for something I didn’t know if I would like. So I put it off and off and off, and then DavidsTea comes out with this one and since I can buy as much or as little as I want, I got 50g ’cause my gut was telling me I should.
I’m glad I went with my gut. This tea smells like sweet cucumbers and melons. Almost like a a melon candle! It’s a nice strong smell that I only hoped the taste could live up to. And thankfully it does! I did add a tiny bit of sugar, but I probably didn’t need it. It’s a sweet cucumber tea. The melon and cucumber flavours are amazing together, and I definitely get a bit of a mint even though there isn’t a pinch of mint in there. I like that the melon was added so the cucumber wasn’t hanging out all by itself. I tried a dry cucumber soda once and it wasn’t good. It wasn’t sweet and refreshing like I was expecting. This hot tea is more refreshing. haha
Anyways, long story short, I definitely want to have this one again. I’m going to get at least a tin of this before it goes away. Maybe two tins. It’s really good.
