A lovely tea, and an excellent caffeinated version of a watermelon flavour. On its own I certainly would love this, and I can see it being an amazing iced tea. I got two steeps out of this one. The first steep was lovely, and full of flavour, with the watermelon being the dominate but undernotes of the tea. Second steep was much lighter, but still enjoyable. There was little tea flavour, but still much fruit. I didn’t try a third.

The way I drank this was a contrast and compare to my previously reviewed Luscious Watermelon from Davids. As a single tea, I prefer the one from David’s. The flavour is slightly more watermelon and has more of a body to it. However since it is an herbal, it doesn’t rebrew nearly as well as this one. Those who like more of a tea flavour would definitely prefer this one, as well.

Note, first steep at 2 minutes, second steep at 3.

Bio

An avid tea addict in the GTA, Ontario, Canada. I’m always looking for new teas and new tea addicted friends!

My preference is loose leaf of all varieties, however the occasional bagged tea can come along and charm me. Flavoured or straight, there is a good chance that I will be falling in love.

My ratings system is based on the smiley faces above the ratings scale.

0-10 — This tea didn’t get past the initial sip process. I just couldn’t bring myself to drink more, I found it so horrible.

11-50 — It made it past first sips, but as I drank a bit more I realized I really wasn’t enjoying the tea, and would never drink it again.

51-60 — I probably made it through the cup, but won’t be trying another one.

61-69 — Either it’s a mystery tea and I can’t decide if I like it or not, or it is one that I felt was purely adequate.

70-85 — These are the teas that I appreciate and/or like. If they are falling in this area they are ones that I would definitely re-buy, however are not ones that I must always have on hand. The good, but not the amazing.

86-94 — These are the favourites. My cupboard feels empty if they aren’t inside.

95-100 — Tea perfection!
