Brewing this up for the first time was an interesting experience. I’m not the biggest fan of melon, but the premise of cantaloupe flavored tea was too intriguing not to try. I gave the bag a sniff upon opening and was met with surprisingly little fragrance. Okay, I thought, maybe it’ll smell stronger once it’s steeping. It did, but not by much.
The taste was pretty nice – it had a subtle floral-fruity thing going on, much like an actual cantaloupe. It was pleasant and thoroughly sippable, but it didn’t quite wow me. Then I added a tiny drizzle of agave.
BAM, fruity-creamy-juicy goodness, just like a slice of cantaloupe with a smidgen of cream. Maybe better. It was just as tasty after it had cooled to room temperature as it was hot, and probably would be awesome iced. I gotta get me some more of this.
Thank you Stacy for the sample, and the triple-take!
