Prepped according to package directions, with my usual amount of sweetener (4 tbsp. to a 1/2 gallon) added.

So I’ve just started to like watermelon, after 20+ years of not being able to taste it. Normally I’d put the idea of anything watermelon out of my head, but when I was trying to get to 10 iced teas so I could get the discount I figured this would be as good as any to try.

And it’s not bad. I should have expected it to have the watermelon candy taste instead of fresh watermelon since those are two different things. But when I sniffed the dry bag I knew I was getting candy over fruit.

Eh – not bad. Reminds me of the watermelon flavored bubble gum that I tried so hard to like as a kid, so kind of fakey tasting. It was still refreshing though. And since it was the only thing I drank during my 12 hour shift, and it kept me hydrated, it gets decent marks from me.

The Southern Boy iced teas line is just making my summer, you guys.

SBT is totally awesome, I agree.

I have come to the point (as of October 2014) where quality in tea is more important than quantity. Especially because I’m a seasonal tea drinker where hot tea is concerned, and a SLOW one to boot. I generally don’t resteep only because I’d be here all day if I did, though I do break out a gaiwan from time to time.

I adore French teas in practically every iteration, Japanese Sencha (specifically from the Uji region, as they offer the most seaweed flavor), and Dan Cong oolongs. I am trying to focus on plain teas and so companies like Verdant, Upton, and Butiki are on my favorites list.

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
