The dried mix smells amazingly like melons which made me buy it without hesitation. However, steeped it just tastes like apples. I had my share of kompot in childhood days and that’s exactly what it tastes like. I might’ve put too little of the mix, but when it was steeped it was a full infuser (in a 1L pot). I am not saying I don’t like it, its very refreshing (and I wanna try other summer collection teas), but it’s not what I expected. I will try it perhaps with stronger brew and not in the morning just after waking up, but for now it gets a weird face rating

Bio

I was always a huge fan of teas but my tastes changed constantly. Lately I am on the path of discovering Chinese teas, but not limiting myself to that. I am, however, favoring straight teas at this point.

I love pu-erh, oolongs are always a treat, learning about greens is delicious, absolutely neutral towards rooibos or herbals and black is always a yes. Incidentally any combination of the above is ok in a blended tea, which I like to have time to time.

« The first cup kisses away my thirst,
and my loneliness is quelled by the second.
The third gives insight worthy of ancient scrolls,
and the fourth exiles my troubles.
My body becomes lighter with the fifth,
and the sixth sends word from immortals.
But the seventh—oh the seventh cup—
if I drink you, a wind will hurry my wings
toward the sacred island. »
