Prior to trying this, it was a plus in my mind because it is a fruity tisane that actually DOESN’T have hibiscus in it. That is surprisingly rare so when I find one, I am immediately interested.

I got a generous portion from Dexter3657 and immediately prepped a bottle to cold steep. I am very happy that the melon flavors are strong and deliciously refreshing. However, there is a bit of a sweet bubblegum quality to this that I am not loving. Nonetheless, this is a very juicy drink and would probably be nice to have around in the summertime. Thank you Dexter3657 for sharing this with me. It is definitely something I would consider restocking.

Excellent! I threw a sample of this in my HI order.

Mmmm! That sounds great.

I am pro any tisane that manages to be fruity and avoid hibiscus. This managed to do that and actually have a pretty prominent melon flavor.

Dexter

Awesome glad you liked it – I haven’t tried it yet – might wait til it warms up and cold steep it.

VariaTEA

It will be nice in the summer. Though it does have a sweetness to it so watch out for that.

I wonder how flash-chilling it would change the flavour? I think that’s how I made it last time.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
