This tea smelled so amazing when I opened the package, but the taste missed the mark for me. If I was a watermelon fan, this tea would have got a higher rating. I guess I was hoping for more of an artificial watermelon taste, because I don’t like watermelon, but this was a very natural watermelon flavour. I can definitely see how someone who likes watermelon would love this tea, but through no fault of its own, I don’t like it enough to finish the pitcher.

Sipdown (110)! Well, sort of because I used the one bag I had, but I still have a pretty full pitcher of this to work on for the next couple of days. I decided to rebel against the given instructions and just cold brew this baby. I stuck it into the fridge for about 5 hours, which is a little short for me, but I was impatient! First impressions are that it is a very candy watermelon flavor rather than straight up fresh, juicy watermelon. I was a little disappointed by that but not too surprised. The black base seems a bit weak, but that may be because of the short cold brew time. I may just embrace the candy-like flavor and add some sugar to it later to make it like Southern sweet iced tea (or as they call it just “iced tea”). I will come back and update this note if I do, or if my feelings about it change as I get through the pitcher.

I was really hoping to like this because I saw Frank’s moving sale and really wanted to help out! Even though SBT & 52teas flavors are so inventive and fun, I just don’t think they’re up my alley as I continue to stray away from flavored teas and toward straight teas. If you like your flavored & sweet teas, though, you should definitely check it out!

Next day edit: So I sweetened a little using a simple syrup, which did seem to enhance the candy watermelon flavor. I also realized that the off-putting flavor from yesterday was a bit of a medicinal flavor. After this realization, I couldn’t bring myself to finish the cup, sadly.

So, I’ve been really bad at reviewing tea lately because I’ve been crazy addicted to Dark Souls. And Fiance is horribly seductive with his offers of playing it co-op with me sometimes. (Bless him for helping me through the Anor Londo archers.)

It’s also almost felt like spring for us lately, so I’ve spent way more time outside. And then tomorrow and Friday are supposed to be a rain/snow mixture. Sigh.

I made an unsweetened pitcher of this, because I honestly think it’s sweet enough on it’s own. It’s a definite solid candy-like watermelon flavor. It’s also not so overwhelming that you feel like you’re chewing Bubble Yum (which I actually like, but know it’s not for everyone). This reminds me of a dialed back version of the Watermelon Mint from Republic of Tea.

Definitely another tasty tea!

I cold steeped one of these in a gallon of water for about 24 hours and added just a touch of maple syrup. The result is still dark and rich despite the 2 qt water recommendation, and the watermelon flavor doesn’t taste fake at all! The black base has a certain pungency which I think balances out the sweet fruitiness, and there’s a floral/rosey finish as well. This might be my fave SBT thus far. (But then I kinda think that every time I try another one…) :)
