Smells like a nice dew filled sunny spring morning…in a cup!

The aroma of this tea was enough to sell me on it, I am a huge melon fan, ha some innuendo there! But seriously cantaloupe, honeydew and watermelon, I freaking love them all so immediately after smelling this one I had to try it, now I am just upset I didn’t buy more.

Dry this tea has an amazing Honeydew smell, not only does it have the natural flavoring but it has actual melon pieces in it. There is a slight earthy smell from the rooibos and mate, but it is easily overpowered by the honeydew, which is fine by me.

I have been doing this one at a 5 minute steep time, it seems to be a happy medium for a great cup of tea, plus that gives it ample time to infuse the air in the room with a nice honeydew aroma. Being a mate and rooibos base it doesn’t have the full energy kick as a cup of a straight mate based tea would, I was drinking this last night at 11pm and I had no issues sleeping. From what I can tell this tea would be utterly amazing iced.

I am dying to try this one! I love melon teas, you make it sound so good.

This one is certainly worth trying, it has such a nice melon flavor to it I can drink it without sugar, haven’t even tried it with sugar but that could be a sensory overload for me.

Tea, Earl Grey, Hot!

I will attempt to taste and comment on each and every blend offered from DAVIDsTEA and of course anything else that comes across my path.

I only drink tea brewed from loose leaf tea, and tend to sweeten my teas with a teaspoon of raw cane sugar per 8oz of tea and consider a cup either 12oz or 16oz depending on what mug I want to use.

I generally do not put milk in my tea’s; however sometimes I may make a ‘London Fog’ style drink or add milk to herbal infusions to add a bit more creaminess to it.

And I generally enjoy drink a nice hot tea while relaxing listening to some Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd.

I am quite liberal with my Tea ratings, I take the smiley face to heart for judging. If I really like it then it will score a high grade regardless of the brand or if I can keep it in my cupboard or not. But to break it down further a bit more check this out:

0-10 – Wouldn’t drink it if I was dying.
10-20 – Are you sure this didn’t come out of a bag?
20-50 – There is hope for this tea…somewhere but not here
50-60 – Drinkable, but not stockable
60-70 – Ok, were onto something here!
70-80 – Wow you gotta try this
80+ I freaking love it, where can I buy it?
