OK- OK- I know, but I had to go and buy a Watermelon Tea!
It’s already getting in the 80’s and the POOL opens MONDAY and the GRANDKIDS will be over to SWIM! What was I to DO?! The reviews on this tea have been pretty good.

First off, hot tea. It’s evening…and hot brewed…this smelled and tasted like fruit salad. I swear there were banana’s in the mix but Nooooo, the ingredients said Nooooo banana’s. It smelled like canned fruit cocktail. I think the apple was confusing things a bit. Apple gives me the taste of linen to a tea sometimes. Uh, the apple here is what sent me to the watermellon rind flavor. I needed a moment. I walked away, and came back.

I got some ice cubes that were made from spring water just for tea and added it to chill a half cup. Chilling helped bring the melon flavor to the forefront. The higher heat was masking the melon before, possibly increasing the beetroot and apple taste.
I let the rest of the tea cool down a bit before drinking more and it tasted much nicer. Adding a bit of sweetening helped also.

This is a fruit infusion. Great for kids! Good mixer with sparkling waters or 7-up.
No caffeine! No rooibos or honeybush for allergic people like me!

I’d buy it again. I have a Cantilope Tea from Butiki, Watermelon Tea from DT and some refreshing Alchemy Blends with Mint from Verdant to refresh hot or chilled with the kids!

Yep I drank the rest cool with my homemade curried turkey meatballs with mint and cilantro..(just a bit) …and salad …really a good accompaniment.

Ooh, I get so jealous at your meal descriptions. I have been eating very much like a student lately because I’m just too busy to do anything else. Pizza pockets for breakfast and supper? Why not! … :(

Bonnie

Listen, I make a batch in the oven and portion into freezer baggies to pull out. Use Greek yoghert garlic lemon and dill /chopped cucumber if you have it and flat bread and some greens …you can run out the door! Add tomato or feta! You get 5 meals! If you want the recipe I can PM you.

Kittenna

All of those ingredients sound delicious – yes please I’d love the recipe!

When I had my first sip, I thought I tasted bananas also. I’m glad I’m not the only one.
