Tea #3 from Another Traveling Tea Box

It took me a few minutes to pinpoint what I think this tea tastes like, in fact I had to think all the way back to middle school and my gum chewing tendencies back then. When I was in middle school my mother spent a small fortune buying me Bubble Yum, oh the memories…

Yup, this tea reminds me a lot of Watermelon Bubble Yum.

It has an artificial watermelon flavor that just hits you in the face and the mint hangs out in the background, barely noticeable. I could taste the back base a bit through all the flavoring, but I really had to search for it.

While this might be a good summer flavor for some, I’m still not sure that I’ll be able to finish the whole pitcher of this tea. The giant tea bags make a Quart sized pitcher.

Edit: The more I drink this, the less I like it so I’ve already decided to drop my rating.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec

This was a rather candy-like one! I’m glad I had my whole family to help me finish off a pitcher of this one.

I wish I had someone other than my toddler to help me finish it off. What he won’t drink will probably end up down the drain since I’m going out of town tomorrow morning.

Bio

I am always interested in swapping so if you see anything in my cupboard that you want to try just send me a message. Please keep in mind that I order most of my teas in sample sizes and may not have a lot to swap. I’m also trying to keep my swaps limited to one a month so I don’t break the bank.

My favorite tea companies to order from are American Tea Room, Butiki, Della Terra, Rishi, TeaVivre, and Verdant, however I am constantly lured away from my favorites by a good sale.

Ingredients I love in tea
rose, peach, oolong, osmanthus, vanilla, marshmallow root and peppermint

Ingredients I dislike in tea:
spearmint, chocolate, orange, hibiscus, sage and for the most part lemon.

Ingredients I’m on the fence about:
Pu-erh

I am a firm believer that sage only belongs in my thanksgiving stuffing/dressing and absolutely not in my tea.

Allergies
Cinnamon, Chocolate, Burdock Root, and Goji Berries

Teawares:

Rating Guidelines:

100 – 90: Pantry essential and some of my all time favorites that I can’t live without.

89 – 80: You’ll have a pretty good chance of finding this is my pantry on a regular basis, but it isn’t the end of the world if I run out.

79 – 70: I might consider restocking this at some point if the price was right.

69 – 40: Not undrinkable, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy it again.

39 – 20: What in the world were they thinking? Probably still finished this just because I hate to waste anything.

19 – 0: Wow, that’s so terrible chances are pretty good I dumped it out and gave away the rest.

My current top five favorite teas:

China Black – Rishi Tea
Earl Grey Cream – Zen Tea
Lemoncello – American Tea Room
Nonpareil Anxi Qing Xiang TieGuanYin Oolong – TeaVivre
White Tea Rose Mélange – Rishi Tea
