The taste of summer

What would summer be without a thick slice of pink and green watermelon in your hand? Mingling honeydew, strawberry leaves and apple with generous chunks of watermelon, this fruit-packed tea is overflowing with juicy melon flavour. Try it on ice and get ready to dangle your bare feet off the balcony: summer is officially here.

Ingredients: Apple, carrot, watermelon, wild strawberry leaves, honeydew melon, beetroot.

This is one of my all-time favorites, actually, and the one that really got me started on DT’s in general. We’d stopped in to look at the new store and this was on offer.

Hot, it’s a nice watermelon-y flavor, not too bitter, not too sweet, just balanced.

But when cold brewed? Oh yeah. That’s how I make this one. Load up the pitcher with some ice cold water, pop in the basket and let this baby chill in the fridge for 12 hours or so. There is zero bitterness this way and it soothes my throat like nobody’s business (important when you’re a Narratrix spending 80% of your workday behind a mic).

I love to take a huge glass of this into the studio with me. It’s perfect for summer.

Iced 8 min or more

Attempted to make a pitcher using the David’s Tea perfect pitcher and following their instructions (34 oz boiling water, 6 spoonfuls of tea, steep for 7 minutes then add ice to fill ptcher). It came out very diluted but smelling amazing. Will try steeping differently next time for better flavor, any suggestions?

This was one of the first teas I ever had from DavidsTea, way back when, so I’m glad it has made a bit of a comeback, and it was one of the ones I asked mom to include in my care package :)

Anyway, this is DELICIOUS as a strongly-steeped iced tea (I have to make my little sample go a long way, so I steeped this for, like, two days, LOL). Maybe a bit more potent than some people would like, but I still refuse to add sugar.

Kristal

Agreed!

Don’t like this one hot brewed. The taste is muted and not as good imo as the cold brew. oh well, glad i was able to try it both ways.

Tried it iced in store and was not overly fond. I think I would have been more ok with it had it been sweetened more. I find that melon teas just don’t really do it for me because compared to other fruits, dried and re-hydrated melon just does not retain much flavour. Not sure. Maybe this would be really nice brewed strong, well sweetened, with some crushed fresh mint? I could see that. But I don’t know if I’ll be buying this.

Having read that this brews up weak, I decided to use more “leaf” than typically would: 10tsp for 1L, it’s practically half the bag! A pity because this is really good. Fruity and definitely watermelon-y with some other melon notes in the background. Something kind of strange too, maybe the carrot. Maybe I’ll try a batch with less tea to see if the flavour is still nice, because as good as this is, it’s not worth the price.

I hear you! It’s a nice iced tea but I use at least 25g for 2L :(

Note- the drag me things don’t work! On mobile don’t just drags the whole screen over.
Made some last night, packed it in my tea ball to take to work and make iced. The scoop I brought may have been to blame- it was more green so may not have picked up as much watermelon as other stuff? Tasted drinkable but made me regret buying this without trying it. Second chance this morning… brewed nice and light pink. Again tried it iced, and again it was just meh. Added sugar to the next glass, maybe 1/2 a tea spoon, that made it much yummier. Not that it’s not sweet, it just needed that kick. So I’ll finish the stuff, probably add sugar, but won’t re buy. I like how Davids tea normally never needs sweetening,even an accidentally over steeped something else that gets bitter…

This is my last sample and I could smell the watermelon when I opened the pack. I was a little skeptical because I usually don’t like artificial watermelon flavor, but this tea was delicious! I had it iced but it was a bit weak-like the Caribbean crush one and will need more tea added and steeped longer. I will be buying more when it comes out as the summer collection-gotta make room in my tea collection for it now. *Update: I went to DavidsTea because they have a promotion now that if you buy 40$ of loose leaf tea you get to pick a free gift set worth 20$. There are three to choose from-I got the "Let’s go camping one with Bear Trap, Just Peachy and Midsummer’s Night Dream. Anyways, they had luscious watermelon as a sample today and the Tea Guide sweetened the tea with agave. Now, I normally don’t like sweetener in my tea but decided to give it a try anyways. Boy, was I EVER glad I did! I fell instantly in love. Sweetened or unsweetened, this tea is THE BOMB and I will be sipping it all summer long and hoarding a bunch for fall/winter season until it comes out again. They should just go ahead and make this a permanent tea on their wall. I might go back and buy some more of this tea and pick another gift pack. Yes, I’ve got a shopping/tea problem lol

Cold Brew Sipdown (133)!

This is another one I got in my online order as a free sample; again, I’m assuming it will be returning as a part of the Summer Collection this year but that’s just a prediction. I don’t know that’ll 100% be the case.

This blend’s been in and out of the shelves for the last five or so years, right? Personally I’ve only been drinking tea for around three years myself – and even still I’ve never tried this until today. The dry leaf smell was intoxicating: it smelled like watermelon in the same wonderful way that Butiki’s Watermelon Xylophone does to me. Then I looked up the ingredients… and they are weird.

The flavour was good though! It’s not really as natural as Watermelon Xylophone is, and honestly I didn’t really expect it to be since this is DAVIDsTEA we’re talking about but my hopes were a little more up after smelling the dry aroma. It’s definitely a definitively watermelon taste though, not a generic ‘melon’ note. I quite enjoyed it and found it appropriately sweet and hydrating. The carrot/beet root didn’t bug me at all either, apart from some weird carrot sediment at the bottom of the vessel.

I totally get why this one keeps making reappearances on DT’s wall – and I can definitely see myself grabbing more to experiment with. I see lots of potential with this one, for sure.

If I remember correctly this tea was there in 2012 when I started drinking tea and then it hasn’t made an appearance since last summer (at which time I bought 250g because I was so excited for it to be back) :)

Tea In Spoons

I thought they brought this back a few months ago in one of those prepackaged boxes. Maybe I’m mistaken?

Kristal

Hmm, not sure. I know I did buy it late in the summer last year. I heard that someone got Luscious Watermelon as a sample in their most recent online order so it might be coming back as part of the summer collection. We shall see!

Roswell Strange

@Kristal That’d be me who get it in their online order; as stated here. But @Evol is right that it did come back at some point in the prepacked boxes (along with Caramel Corn and one other I can’t remember), I just don’t remember how long back that was.

Tea In Spoons

I know it looked like an air balloon and I’m pretty sure it was 2015. I want to say after all those summer teas came out.

Tea In Spoons

I wanted to try it, but I know I can never drink enough tea.

Kristal

@Roswell Strange, oops! Sorry, must have skimmed over that part.

Roswell Strange

Also, Summer Collection Confirmed: Mango Fruit Punch, Luscious Watermelon, Caribbean Crunch, Pura Vida (still need to review), and Pom Diggity. Just Peachy is coming back as a “Core” tea. Employees are no longer allowed to say Permanent Tea ’cause things are getting discontinued more frequently…

Tea In Spoons

Thanks for confirming! Now I know what to look forward too.

Kristal

“Employees are no longer allowed to say Permanent Tea ’cause things are getting discontinued more frequently…”

What a shame that is! It makes me feel like DAVIDs is less and less reliable

I didn’t care for this herbal tea back in 2012 and I don’t care for it now. This was one of the first teas I tried from DAVIDsTEA. I purchased it in the summer of 2012 because I love all things melon and it was one of most appealing sounding varieties from that summer’s collection. The combination of carrot and watermelon didn’t jive on my palate three years ago and the same holds true now. I just made an iced glass of this tea after swapping for about 25g. I’ll be looking to re-home what I have left because I don’t think I can finish this glass. I was excited to try it again because DT’s recent releases of Melon Drop and Honey I Dew are two of my all-time favorite blends. Maybe I just prefer honeydew melon and rock melon/cantaloupe over watermelon? Or maybe the carrot is just too present in my cuppa and it just lingers on my palate? I’ll be adding carrot to the list of ingredients to avoid when it comes to tea. I should’ve paid more attention back in 2012. I believe Indian Summer also contained carrot AND watermelon, and I loathed that tea when I had such lofty expectations for it. But, I digress…

I’m glad I’m not a fan. It’ll save me from scrambling to stock up on this re-released, but LE, fan favorite. That’s just as well. The new website is a nightmarish labyrinth of glitches and programming errors. They should have enlisted the help of some Frequent Steepers to BETA test the site before launching it.
