Oh man, melon tea!

I love Butiki Tea’s Watermelon Xylophone and Cantaloupe & Cream. With my Lupicia order, I decided to give this melon tea a try, especially with other tea logs saying this was more honeydew in flavor.

DRY: mmm melon scent! Let me at it!

STEEPED: Smells like those asian melon juice drinks. In fact, I have a melon yogurt aloe chunk juice in my fridge!

TASTE: The melon taste comes right through, moreso on the ripe honeydew side, though I get a little cantaloupe too. Very naturally sweet, I do not need sugar at all. If I added sugar, this would totally be like juice!
The white tea here is very light.

I’ll try a resteep later. I’m about to tuck into some kimchi soup and burn out my taste buds.
EDIT: 2nd infusion – less melon taste, but it’s still there and melony but less sweet. The white tea is coming out and is nice and smooth, yum!

COMMENTS: MMMm, this is good! I love the honeydew flavor! This would be a killer iced or cold steep!

I’m wondering.. if I mix the Butiki watermelon, cantaloupe and this tea, would I get a melon fruit salad tea? I’m tempted to try!

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk. I am also a crochet and knitting designer at Awkward Soul Designs.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

BTW, my Steepster cupboard is not even close to accurate and I track my teas on a spreadsheet. Last update 573 Teas – August 2015.
