drank White Melon by Ronnefeldt Tea
224 tasting notes

OK, smell of the leaves i dint like too much, seems quite intense…

I’m starting with short steep (2 minutes).
Color is light. Slightly yellow/green-ish. I can barely feel the smell of the actual tea. Kinda surprising after smelling the intense leaves.

Ohhhh mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
Delicate. Wow. I’m quite impressed. It’s so subtle, gentle, and yummy. Can taste both white tea and melon. In right combo. Pai Mu Tan makes it smooth and what i call nutty (like gently greasy like sunflower or pumpkin seeds) but idk, gotta figure out what word you use for it lol. I like it when flavored teas don’t totally overtake the original tea in them. Melon is well melony :D You know kinda sweetish, refreshing. They go very well together…

Oh the leaves of this tea are big compring to the ones I’ve had before. Love that…

EDIT
I noticed again on the first steep that colder the tea gets flavors get stronger. Thats obviously Ronnefeldt’s “thing”. With Bourbon Vanilla i liked colder better for stronger vanilla bourbon flavor. Here i kinda prefered hot tea with stronger PaiMuTan scent.

2nd steep 2,5 minutes, slightly colder water
Bit darker, tastes like the first steep.

3rd steep
Got cold and I like it. Very refreshing. Maybe i just found my summer drink. Well that and my Melon margarita :D Not even yummy teas will make me give up that treat…

Sounds delicious! And I can’t wait for you to try some loose leaf oolong. Many of those have giant leaves, and yet they start out so tiny :)

born with a bit of a restless, curious and exploring spirit ;) love to travel and i do it a lot lately. enjoy good food and drinks. love trying out new stuff. just about to start exploring the world of teas and i’m really enthusiastic about it ;)

EDIT 4 months later:
still a n00b here but starting to get it ;) i try to buy loose tea but i got a lot of teabags too cuz it’s easier to find here. from not liking black tea ended up love it. green can be quite good too but waiting for more real ones to try. whites are sometimes awesome, sometimes not, rooibos and fruity blends are a good replacement for juices… and so on… still excited about every new tea… loving it more every day :D

since my favorite hobby is photography i take photos whenever something is interesting. including my tea making process…
