From 52teas

So my wife likes to go to this place in the mall; I think it’s called “Smelly Stuff and Goop Werks.” And she always buys this Cucumber Melon soap, and the stuff just keep making me think I should create a cucumber melon tea. I mean, it really smells good enough to drink or eat, except for the fact that it’s soap and it would probably taste like soap. (Ma only had to wash my mouth out with soap once for me to learn that lesson, thank you very much.)

So anyway, here’s our amazing new tea of the week: Chinese sencha blended with real freeze-dried cucumber dices and natural cucumber and muskmelon flavors.

This one IS going to go fast, and I don’t have the ingredients to reblend it right now (took me a while to find freeze-dried cucumbers, let me tell you), so grab it while you can!

I’m increasing my rating on this one because it really hit the spot today. Maybe I’ve finally gotten my steeping parameters right, but this just really tasted good today! It’s good hot out of the teapot, and in my opinion it only gets better as it starts to cool off. My favorite was when it was just barely lukewarm. I’ll be coming to this one more regularly now, that’s for sure.

Cofftea

This tea just makes me say one thing… “Aaaahhhh..” Well that and “YAY!” lol.

52teas

Psst. I broke down and ordered some cucumber flavoring, so we can reblend this one when I get it in. Maybe some other cucumber blends?

Jaime

Frank, I just heard Cofftea squeal from here.

Cofftea

HAHA! Before I saw your comment Jamie, I literally went “OH MY GOSH!” out loud in my empty house! I listed a bunch of cucumber blends somewhere. Just do a discussion search for cucumber. I remember cucumber wasabi matcha being one. Cucumber melon matcha would be amazing as well. I make a smoothie I love. 1/2 cup sliced cucumber, 1/4 cup musk melon, 1/4 cup honeydew and a tsp of matcha.

Think I’ll be trying this one.

Made the 1st infusion for my mom so I can’t review it yet.

I actually quite enjoyed this tea. It is one of those ones that surprised me a bit when I liked it… because I didn’t expect to.

Cofftea

I love it- but then again I love Adagio’s white cucumber (the one that everyone hates and compares to red hots lol). Although I like this one hot more than I likethe white cucumber hot. I can’t wait to try this one iced. I hope Frank does a white tea version of this.

LiberTEAS

I haven’t yet tried the white cucumber… and I don’t even remember if I ordered it the last time I placed an order from them… I ordered so many of those little sampler tins that I don’t remember all of them! LOL (I really, really have a problem when it comes to ordering tea… there should be a 12 step program. “Hello, my name is Anne and I’m a tea shopaholic. I haven’t ordered tea for 18 hours”

Cofftea

Haha… I can do 18 hrs… it’s the not making at least 1 purchase a month I have a problem w/. And it’s all the fault of newsletter coupons. I actually cave on SS items very rarely.

LiberTEAS

Well, for many years, while I considered myself a tea purveyor, I did not buy a lot of teas from my “competitors” – it’s only been in this last year that I’ve started becoming more open to trying other people’s tea. And since I decided to close LiberTEAS, I have gone crazy with ordering. It’s like someone opened the gate and I’m running free with my credit card. LOL

Cofftea

If you ever open LiberTEAS again I’d love to see what you can do w/ flavored matchas- maybe you’ll give Frank a run for his money;)

LiberTEAS

I might have to try it sometime. I am still blending teas occasionally. The one I’m working on at the moment is a green tea blend of Jasmine, Passionfruit and Orange. I am loving it thus far… I may do a special, limited-edition run of it.

Cofftea

I would definitely consider buying some.

Oh man, this is a good tea! The dry leaves smell fresh and and faintly melony and there are little bits of dried cucumber and melon mixed in with the (resonably whole) green tea leaves.

The tea itself is awesome; light and golden-coloured, the green tea base is very smooth and quite mild aswell. I can pick up both the freshness of the cucumber and the lightly-sweet flavour of the melon. The melon – honeydew melon I think – is very natural-tasting and it doesn’t have that artificially sweet quality some melon-flavoured teas have.

Also, I’m happy that this tea manages to taste like cucumber without smelling like a mix of cinnamon heart candies and dill pickles (yeah, I’m looking at you Adagio; seriously what did you put in that tea?!).

It resteeps well too, which I don’t find with 52Teas black blends, so it’s a nice surprise.

Have you tried it iced yet?

Jillian

Not yet but I think it would be nice that way.

Cofftea

WAY beyond nice:)

Okay…so…if you were to ‘juice’ a cucumber and heat up the juice this would be it! This is the closest I have tasted to ANY tea that actually tastes this close to Cucumber! This is really good and really refreshing. I think I am going to save my last sample for an ICED attempt.

Yet another goodie from LiberTEAs…she’s such a peach! :)

The dry leaf smells like a cucumber as you pick it from your garden with the skin still on it where as the post-infusion liquid smells like a cucumber once you start to cut it in chunks or slices! It’s truly amazing!

The taste is so pure and clean it just makes me smile! WOW! I really, really like this green tea…it seems to be the complete package (as long as you like cucumber!)

I brewed some of this last night for iced tea today. So crisp, light and refreshing. Delicious. Absolutely delicious!

I was slow to taste this. Firstly, I do love cucumbers and I love melons. They are clearly related in texture and affect: how they do love to return! Green tea is not my favorite. But yesterday I had an impulse to try this. 52teas has never led me astray nor have I ever had one of their teas that was not flavored brilliantly.

And this is another winner! The green tea leaves are large and unfurl beautifully. The melon and cucumber tastes nicely complement each other. On a cold February day, it felt like a perfect antidote to the grey-flannel sky.

The tea is remarkably full-flavored for a green tea and it will have me revisiting my prejudices about green teas. 52teas has done it again. They never stint on flavor.

Salad in a tea? Cucumber and melon don’t go together do they? Well… yes they do, who would have known.

It’s a very fresh tasting green tea, not massively cucumbery (that’s a good thing) but you can definitely tell its there. The lovely sweet melon comes through and works well.

I imagine this would be really nice as an iced tea but am yet to try it.

It seems I have been living in the engineering building. I really need to figure out a way to bring tea with me, cause I crave it so bad all day long!

I decided to brew some of this. I’ve always had a tough time steeping greens correctly since they’re not really that forgiving with water temperature and I have no way of regulating temperature.

The smell is very sweet, and the color is a pale yellow green. Hmm, I’m thinking I didn’t get all the flavor out of this cup. It tastes kind of watery, then again I did sort of make it in a rush since I wanted tea so bad! I definitely taste some melon flavor, and the green tea flavor is sort of there as well. I know it’s a sencha taste, but I always thought sencha was more bitter and stronger than what I’m tasting? I’m not a green tea expert though. The more I drink, the more flavor comes out, and I’m really liking it. It’s a pretty subtle tasting tea, at least this cup was, and I’m liking it. I think I’ll hold off on a rating for the next time I drink it.

ETA. Okay, after finishing my cup I really liked this tea a lot. It had some sweety flavor from the melon but at the same time I really did feel like I was drinking a salad from the cucumber and green tea flavors mixed. Very nice flavor and tea :)
