1471 Tasting Notes
2nd verse, same as the first! The second steep is just as good at the first, and the post-sip is even better. It kinda tastes like sour water melon slices mixed with sour grapefruit slices (which I adore) without the overwhelming sweetness/citric acid bite of the candies. The oolong shines through a bit more, but the watermelon isn’t lost, especially in the iced version.
Full disclosure: I live for watermelon. I’m the only one in the house who eats it and it makes my stomach hurt but I still buy about a dozen every summer. I love it. I wanted Lucious Watermelon from DavidsTea to be my watermelon tea, but it just doesn’t measure up.
This tea does. It does taste a little artificial, but I don’t care. Sweet watermelon and fresh oolong, this is summer in a mug for me. I’m trying it both iced and hot and both are delicious, but I prefer iced.
After finding a hunk of boiled egg white in my kettle (from my wife making hard boiled eggs last night and yes, I found this after my two cups of tea this morning), I scrubbed out my kettle and made two cups of my favorite teas to soothe the heebie jeebies. I make my hot teas two mugs at a time because I drink my tea lukewarm like a weirdo XD.
Anyway, this tea is good. Consistently delicious, never had a bad cuppa. The scent alone is cheering me up.
Please excuse any lack of cohesion, I’m so exhausted I’m dizzy >.
