I finished this one last night and am a little ambivalent towards it. I’d drink it if I had more, but I don’t know that I’d go out of my way at all to get more. It was enjoyably fruity/minty but not memorable enough to clutch onto.

If you ask us, the watermelon is king of summer. We know it’s a bold statement, but it’s true. No picnic, BBQ or pool party is complete without its juicy pink-and-green goodness. And this summer we’re giving you one more reason to think pink…a fresh and fruity melange of melon and apple, with a super-refreshing burst of peppermint. Try it on ice with a splash of vodka – it’s the ultimate summer thirst quencher. All hail the king! Limited edition.

This tea was surprisingly refreshing. It doesn’t look like much when you pour the leaves into your hand but boy is it aromatic when you add the water. The mint is definitely in the forefront with the watermelon providing a sweet finish to the drink. It brews a very very pale green and is wonderful iced. I didn’t think I would like it but that’s what I get for judging a book by its cover.
I feel like the Pitcher Perfect packs that David’s Tea put out this year, aren’t even fair. Every summer, I kill myself, and waste so much tea, in the cold-brew process. This is finally a thing of the past! I bought one of their steeping pitchers, and try a new pitcher pack each week (although at this point I’m merely recycling my faves). So easy, and delightful!
This happens to be one of the aforementioned favorites. Although, I’m by no means a watermelon-person, this flavor paired with mint provides the perfect refreshing treat on a humid city summer day.
Pass the Stash TTB 2.0
I just noticed that I totally missed my 200th tasting note milestone! So hooray! Anyway, this tea. Dry, it has a very powerful scent! Whew. Very strong watermelon-ish scent with a lot of mint. The tea itself is a mixture of a bunch of huge dried fruit chunks.
Yum, I actually like this a lot more than I thought I would based on the smell. I did add sugar, by the way. The front of the sip is watermelon, and it’s very juicy and convincing. Maybe a tiny hint of tart which just exemplifies the juicy flavor. The mint shows up midway through and dominates from then on. It leaves a nice cooling sensation through the aftertaste, which lingers for some time. Very nice, and would be fantastic cold!

Flavors: Fruity, Melon, Mint, Sweet
I had this tea iced while on vacation a few weeks ago. Overall, I would say that this one was just O.K. but nothing great. I am not usually a fan of watermelon and I can’t say that this tea was able to change that. The mint was nice and refreshing and the watermelon was quite hydrating (a much needed drink on such a hot day). I don’t think that I will be trying this one again as I am not a fan of watermelon but if you are a fan of watermelon, it may be something you would enjoy.
Dry, this one smells like the scented markers they gave us in Kindergarten. I thoroughly confused my fiance last night when I held the bag of this under his nose and demanded, “Doesn’t it smell like a magic marker?” If he didn’t think I was crazy before, he probably does now… (That IS what this tea smells like though. It’s not my fault if his elementary school wasn’t as awesome as mine.)
I steeped this one for 7 minutes and got a VERY minty tea; after I’d finished the cup, the cooling sensation from the mint lingered in the back of my throat. The fruit flavor is reminiscent of watermelon and very light. It’s more of an accent to the mint flavor if anything.
Overall, this is an enjoyable tea, but I’m not sure I’d want it in anything other than a sample package.
Pass the Stash
I received this tea from Marzipan as my present in the Pass the Stash box! Boy, was I ever excited! I swear my boyfriend thinks I am crazy for getting this excited over tea and my dog just gives me the funniest of looks as I dance about in excitement. Ahh, but it is so much fun to enjoy life like this. Needless to say, I had a difficult time waiting this long to dive into this tea.
Wow. I’m so happy with this tea-it is amazing and totally fits the whole summer spirit. I could see myself happily sipping this tea iced on the coast of a warm and sunny beach. Mmm..oh, yes. The mint in this tea is so refreshing and the watermelon is so fresh! Plus, I’m loving the fact that it is an herbal tea so I can drink loads of it at any time of the day..oooohhh, yeah! I’ve already gone through three giant pots of this tea (both hot and iced-both are very tasty) so I can’t imagine that this tea will last me very long… tehehe.
Flavors: Melon, Mint
This is such a fun tea for summer. It is so refreshing iced. The watermelon and mint flavors are strong. The mint seems pretty natural but the watermelon does taste a little artificial, like a lollipop almost. But I did not expect anything else, especially since the fruit itself is too watery to be able to steep and translate flavor.
I managed to resist going into a David’s to check out the summer collection for a few weeks at least.
Last time I was in I’d signed up for their rewards program so I had a free tea coupon. I had the very nice sales girl make me a cup of this iced. I opted to have it plain with no sweetener.
Holy wow was this ever delicious! I was sharing this with my boyfriend but after he had a sip I almost didn’t get it back. This was also the first ever iced tea I’ve had freshly prepared like this, and let me tell you, I’m completely sold on the whole concept. I bought the whole summer collection and I’ve been working my way through them since!
At the store this was super fruity and I didn’t taste the mint at all. When I made it at home, while it was steeping hot all I could smell was mint! It was crazy! Once iced, the mintiness diminished but it was still there. Still delicious. Love this tea.
