I grabbed 30g size of this tea… and when I got to work to make some I noticed I got one of the defective bags the sales gal told me about >__< so the zipper is ripped and I bet this tea’ll go stale fast.

Brewed at work in my libre glass it was horribly tart with this huge freak piece of…. melon? floating in it – it was white and big. But yeah, I would of poured it out if I wasn’t so thirsty. I’m thinking I had a bad scoop for that cup.

At home, brewed properly it very much tastes like watermelon with a tart aftertaste. I’m sure this is very dependent on how much sugary melon bits you get on for it to taste impressive. And the watermelon taste is legit watermelon, not the “dirty sock” fake watermelon candy taste, but not as sweet as I thought it would be. With that said, I really need to try this iced and sweetened, though I bet I won’t be buying more of this tea (and if I did, it be online only).

Also.. fishing out the big white melony chunks after steeping is yumm!

Profile

Bio

I’m a crafty knitter and crocheter that loves to work on a project and drink tea. I worked as a counsellor and I chain-drink tea to keep me calm and grounded.

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 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.
My recommended tea shops:
Mandala Tea
Steep City Teas
Butiki Teas
DAVIDsTea
Della Terra Teas
Lupicia
Verdant Tea
Yunnan Sourcing
52 Teas / Zoomdweebies
Yunomi.us
Red Leaf Tea
New Mexico Tea Co
Bluebird Tea Co
The Persimmon Tree

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

I have a husband and a bunny who both hate tea. More for me!!!! MUUAHAHAHAHAAA
