This was a free sample from David’s and not one I would have bought – mate and melon are not my favourite tastes individually let alone together. However it was free….so nothing to lose. And what a pleasant surprise. This was light and breezy and thankfully lacked that earthy quality of mate. The melon comes through with just the right amount of sweetness and I enjoyed the aroma too. If I had more (and sadly I can’t get these teas delivered to the UK so only if I am sent them by friends can I drink Davids Tea) I would try it iced with a touch of fresh mint from the garden.
