This tea comes courtesy of the Victoria Tea Festival – a tea store based in Coquitlam called Dream Tea Boutique (http://dreamteaboutique.com/) imports Forsman teas (which is apparently a Finnish? tea company). I haven’t seen Forsman teas for sale anywhere else in the country which is a shame since they have a nice selection of both flavoured and unflavoured tea.

The black tea base they use is a smooth, light Ceylon that compliments the fruity flavours without being weak. The cantaloup flavours are nice and not too strong or artificial and I can taste a hint of the dried pineapple in there too. I bet this would be lovely iced.

Thank you Jillian for including some of this in the box for me to try; melon tea is kind of the quintessential summer tea in my opinion, and it’s definitely not all that common to see cantaloupe tea over watermelon or honeydew so I had to try this!

I cold brewed the tea; I ended up not getting around to it yesterday so it definitely got a nice, long probably around 30 hour brew time? It tastes fine though: it’s actually quite refreshing and still actually fairly mild/light. The black base is definitely stronger than any of the added things: it’s floral, maybe a little malty? It has an ever so slight dryness to it; but not in an overly unpleasant way. I wish the cantaloupe was stronger but Jillian did warn me this was older and had lost a lot of flavour. As it stands, I mostly just taste it in the finish/aftertaste and while it’s melony I don’t think I’d call it a specifically cantaloupe flavour. What I do that that’s specific is a note at the end of the sip that reminds me of cool, crisp and slightly vegetal cucumber. Not sure what that’s from but it’s pleasant!

Thanks for the share!
