drank Melon Oolong by Lupicia
2389 tasting notes

This came in the Lupicia summer grab bag sale and I was skeptical I’d like it due to the artificial flavor and the sugar.

This was steeped western style and it definitely has a melon-y flavor that reminds me of cantaloupe. It’s slightly sweet but not overwhelmingly so. The oolong adds a bit of floral/buttery backdrop. I am going to try cold brewing this also to see what happens. This isn’t bad but I prefer the pineapple oolong from Lupicia. (For flavored oolongs in general I really liked the line from Naivetea). I’m curious to see how much of the flavoring is left if you try resteeping it.

p.s. – I did not like this as a cold brew

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it
