drank Melon Oolong by Lupicia
97 tasting notes

This is an odd one for me, because it’s really, really good… but I don’t like melons. They’re one of the few foods that I’d rather not eat, I find their sweetness to be rather cloying. However, I do occasionally enjoy the (artificially?) flavored melon candies from the local Asian supermarket, so I figured I’d give it a shot.

The dry leaves smell very melon-y, and have pretty little green sugar crystals among them. Brewed, I found that the quite green taste and scent of the oolong balanced the melon over-sweetness quite well, and I enjoyed this tea a surprising amount…

Bio

Hi! I’m a linguistics major at a certain infamous east coast tech school, I write, I rock climb, and I have a mild obsession with Diana Wynne Jones.

I’m also Russian, which means I’ve been drinking tea all my life — always loose leaf, and always black. Black teas are still my favorite, but of course I dabble in a bit of everything. I really like ceylon, I recently discovered puer, and I’m having a lot of fun exploring flavored black teas (and making silly fandom blends on adagio…).

My tea cabinet may or may not be accurate at the moment, as I am transitioning between locations…

Rating system (work in progress):
95 – Wow!
85 – My favorites. Cupboard staple material.
75 – Really good. Debating whether to keep it around…
65 – Quite pleasant, but not for me. I probably won’t (re)purchase.
55 – Just okay.
