It seems it takes a little while for me to warm up to melon flavored teas. I can never resist trying it hot even though I know it will quite likely give me a case of the icky face, I mean hot watermelon…ugh. Needless to say (but I’m apparently saying it anyways) I was not at all a fan of this as a hot tea. Thankfully, it’s much better cold. The mango flavor seems a little subdued to me. I know the flavors develop a little better in 52teas blends when I let them sit for a while, so since I just got this in the mail recently, it’s probably not the best representation of what the flavor can truly do. I’ll wait to rate this on my next go-around, but so far, the watermelon is definitely there, but I was hoping that the mango would be equally (or even more) present.
My hubby qualified in all his training, and is flying home right now, as I type. Sadly, his grandfather passed away a couple of days ago, so his homecoming is going to be bittersweet. I better get going so I can prepare some comfort food- I’m sure he’s looking forward to a home cooked meal after pretty much 3 weeks of cafeteria food.
