OMG! I thought that Luscious Watermelon was melony, but this is THE melon tea. In the Philippines, my aunt would take a cantaloupe, shred it into a pitcher of cold water and ice, and put a tiny bit of sugar. This is the tea recreation of that drink.
The dry scent definitely lets you know that you’ll be tasting cantaloupe. I’m not entirely sure what temperature my water was at; I boiled it then let it sit for about 5 minutes. The brewed tea is a lovely golden colour and smells grassy with melon notes.
I drank a bit of it straight so I could judge the taste. It has that same feel in my mouth as my aunt’s cantaloupe juice. A tiny bit of sugar made it taste the same too. This is such a light tea, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m just amazed that there is a cantaloupe tea in my hands :)
This is also the first tea I’ve tasted out of my recent order from Stacy. It’s my first time trying Butiki Teas. The service and communication with Stacy was excellent. And if this is any indication, there are great things to come from the rest of my supply!
