Ok, so I know it says ‘Honeydew,’ but the dry leaf smells exactly like Bubblicious Watermelon bubble gum! (I mean, I haven’t had that stuff since middle school, but the second I opened the sample packet, it was pure nostalgia.)
Steeped, that Bubblicious scent is still there, but it’s now coupled with more of a fresh honeydew scent. And it tastes like a juicy honeydew melon. Seriously, this tea is actually juicy. I dig it. And that’s saying a lot because I don’t usually like mate. But I do like green rooibos, so maybe that’s helping to balance out the mate taste for me. I suspect this one would be delicious iced, but I didn’t have enough to try it.
