Brewed this at home and refrigerated it overnight, made a world of difference. I didn’t use as much tea as I should have, next time I’ll make it stronger, but it’s still delicious. It’s juicy and refreshing and light. Perfect for summer. It’s going to be a wonderful summer with this by my side.

Especially since the watermelon bits haven’t all been eaten by the sales staff yet : )

Lol I think I need the full story behind this one, please!

Just a trend I noticed. The sales clerk at our store admitted to sneaking/eating bits of watermelon from the big tin. Since my time on Steepster, I’ve learned that was a national habit. Therefore, most tins of Luscious Watermelon aren’t actually Luscious Watermelon, since a big chunk of the watermelon was eaten by the sales people.

That sucks :(

More than just sucks. That sounds more than a little yucky to me. Sorry, that just hits my “Do not want” button really hard. Definitely a red TMI card.

I’m with you, Atuinsails. I think it’s something they shouldn’t be doing (for hygiene reasons, as well as wanting the tea to have all of it’s ingredients). We’ll see if this year goes the same as last.

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have four live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put sugar in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
