Stacy was kind enough to pass along with my last order a sample of the Watermelon Dragonwell that she concocted prior to the creation of Watermelon Xylophone, as I was quite interested in the idea!

The aroma of this one dry was a bit difficult to discern, as the packet was located next to the packet of Cider Guayasa (which smells absurdly good!), so that’s all I could smell. However, once out of the packet I could smell a bit of sweet fruitiness.

Unfortunately, as is typical of me, I brewed up a bunch of teas and forgot about them for a couple hours, so this one is cold now… however I’m rather enjoying it! The dragonwell is light and a kind of green beany flavour, but I can still taste a melony flavour lurking in the background, and unlike with Watermelon Xylophone, it’s coming off a bit more like watermelon than cantaloupe! It’s been recommended that this tea be tried with some rock sugar to bring out the watermelon, so attempt #2 will involve that, but I wanted to taste it on its on first. I’m intrigued by the idea of blends with green teas that lean more heavily toward vegetal as opposed to seaweedy/brothy notes, and this one seems to indicate that it would be possible and tasty to make such a blend! I think the tea would definitely be better with stronger flavouring, but as that wasn’t really an option, it was probably best to go with a white tea, but I enjoy this regardless.

Thanks so much for the sample, Stacy!

You’re quite welcome. I do intend on flavoring dragonwell at some point. With what is really the question. I’m thinking maybe some type of citrus.

Alphakitty

Ooh, citrus dragonwell sounds delicious! Maybe yuzu? (okay, I just want more yuzu teas haha)

Butiki Teas

I don’t think I’ve ever had yuzu. What does it taste like?

Alphakitty

Yuzu is kind of like a cross between lemon and grapefruit, but with a really unique taste that’s hard to describe exactly. It’s my favorite citrus, but there don’t seem to be a lot of teas flavored with it.

Butiki Teas

Huh, that sounds interesting.

Alphakitty

It is! Lots of Japanese candies are yuzu flavored, you can probably find some if you have an Asian market nearby.

Kittenna

Sounds delicious!! As long as the citrus is a fruity flavour and not a peel flavour. I dislike how citrus peel is used to flavour so many things. Ick!

Thank you for the sample.
It does indeed smell like a watermelon.
I have to admit that I’m not a watermelon fan (in terms of taste). What? Shocking I know … Furthermore, I associate watermelon flavor with cheep bubblegum. Having said that, this was really nice. It was light, sparkly and very delightful. It would probably make a nice iced version.
