From Kally Tea

You’ll love this combination of sweet watermelon, paired with smoky gunpowder green tea, with the addition of tangy lime, and natural flavors. The result is a sophisticated and refreshing cup that will surprise and delight your senses. We have found that this tea is truly enhanced with the addition of a sweetener of your choice. Try it without first if you desire, but do not deprive yourself of the experience with the addition of a sweetener.

Ingredients: Apples, Rosehips, Organic Green Tea, Hibiscus, Pomegranate, Carrots, Lime Leaves, Lime Pieces, Lime Juice, Watermelon Seeds, Natural Flavors.

Whoops! I thought this one was a fruit tisane! Therefore made some really silly mistakes. My bad! Thanks for the sample, Azzrian, and I’m glad you sent me enough to try again! Original review (minus the part about it being caffeine-free) follows!

Anyways, brewing this up, I could have sworn I was brewing up DavidsTea’s Goji Pop! Yes, another tea very similar to one I’ve previously tried! Although the ingredients here are completely different (ok, not completely, I think melon is the similar ingredient, but the blends look quite different). The aroma is hibiscus-tart-tangy, which doesn’t bother me likely because my tastebuds are anticipating a cup full of Goji Pop! We’ll see what they get…

Holy. Reminiscent of, but definitely not, Goji Pop. Also, I oversteeped this one; it is a bit bitter and overly sour from the hibiscus. I’m finding it difficult to distinguish anything else because of those two things. To be honest… I definitely prefer Goji Pop (which does not have an oversteeping problem). But I will have to give this one another shot with a) less tea and b) a shorter infusion time! Given my recent decision not to drink icky tea, this one barely passes due to the sour/bitter, but I’m still going to drink it because it’s not that bad. Rating reserved until the next time :)

ETA: Second infusion unpleasant – some different flavours coming out. Will just have to try again.

Yeah I mean hibiscus is not my fav in anything I have to try this again as I see I rated it pretty high for a hibiscus blend.

Kittenna

I think it’s probably just fine if attention is paid to infusion time :)

Josie Jade

I really liked this tea and have been wanting to try Goji Pop for awhile. I think you just talked me into ordering some!

LiberTEAS

This is actually a green tea, not a caffeine free tisane like Goji Pop … eight minutes is a lot of time to steep a gunpowder green tea.

Kittenna

… that could explain a LOT! Whoops! Good thing I have enough to try again! Going to edit the silly bit out of my review. Clearly I wasn’t paying attention :D

LiberTEAS

Yes, I’m glad that you have enough to try it again, because it’s really good. Also, I thought that the second infusion was better than the first… definitely must brew it a second time! :)

This is pretty good. The hibiscus really seems to compliment this tea nicely.
Definitely has a good watermelon flavor.
Hubby thought it was sweet even without having added any sweetener to it.
I did not find it sweet at all more refreshing and light.
Would be excellent iced.
On the second cup I added sugar in the raw and enjoyed it even more.
I feel the sugar brought out more of the other flavors in the tea without making the watermelon less prominent.

Kittenna

Any tea with ‘melon’ in the name pretty much automatically goes on my shopping list…

Azzrian

Would be happy to send ya some!

Kittenna

Wanna have another swap??

This blend has a lot going on. After reading some of the other tasting notes, I brewed with caution, making sure I didn’t oversteep. 170°F for 2 minutes. The result: a pretty pale pink brew, very little color from the hibiscus, and very little texture. A hint of tart, most of which seems to be coming from the naturally tart fruits like lime and pomegranate – the lime is pretty distinct.

This is tasty. I do wish I tasted more of the green tea. I taste the watermelon, and that makes me very happy because it would seem it might be a bit too delicate in the midst of stronger flavors like hibiscus and lime. But I notice that the lime seems to act as an assist to the watermelon, accenting its sweet, juicy notes. While I can taste the green tea, I wish it was a little stronger – this is much more of a tisane-y tasting cup than tasting of tea. Not bad, actually, it’s very delicious.

Since this hardly looks like a green tea, I steeped it like I usually do for a fruit tisane. I made iced tea with it since you know, it is watermelon. No problems with any sort of bitterness but I think all the sweet dried fruit bits help with that.

The first sip was probably the best. It was super juicy watermelon, it almost tasted better than Luscious Watermelon. But after that, it’s just not as strong. At the same time though it tastes natural, just more like a watermelon that isn’t at its ripest, juicy potential. I think the lime juice also kind of takes away from the melony flavor, because it seems oddly strong.

I can’t decide if I want more of this or not given how much LW I do have It reminds me of the watermelon mojito I had at the movies yesterday (best part of the movie to be honest) and I’m curious what it’d be like if I muddled some fresh mint in it now.

Thanks, Azzrian!

It is different isn’t it! and your welcome :)

Bleh, having a slow day with emails piling up and crochet bits of owls I need to stitch together. I didn’t nearly drink enough tea today, but my thighs are dying!
I did the “Call Me Maybe Squat Challenge” http://youtu.be/xDpB8pWEjhk which I survived! I died at the end and was like “omg, no more” and realized it was done! WOOT!! Take that squat challenge! A overweight, though burly brazilian jiu jitsu gal finished it first try! Oww my thighs!

So, iced tea? Okay – Wild Watermelon iced is MUCH better! I added german rock sugar and a teeny bit of light agave for sweetness. You know, this tastes like a watermelon jolly rancher! Actually, I like this better than a watermelon jolly rancher!

ps. Being a tea fanatic – I was eyeing the giant tea cup in the background of that workout video the entire time! OMG I want!

Preparation
Iced
Kittenna

I should try the last I have like this. Did you cold-brew or just ice?

Awkward Soul

iced, I just steeped it strong (212F for 4.5 minutes) and topped it with lots of ice.

-Dry leaves look like a trail mix with rolled green leaves and clusters of seeds, carrot and fruit pieces. Wet leaves have tightly clumped leaves and plump pieces of carrots and apples.
-Dry leaves smell of tangy lime with a hint of watermelon. Tea liquor smells like sweet watermelon.
-Tea liquor is a pretty medium pink color.
-Slightly tart lime flavor with a delicate watermelon finish.
-Best with sweetener.
-Very good tea. True watermelon flavor without being artificial. Tastes like summer.

Oh, I don’t know, it was OK. It tasted like an herbal tisane to me, and I like my tea to have a tea flavor in it somewhere. I had put two Splenda in there and still got a tartness from it—and you can probably guess from how much Splenda I use that I am not really a fan of sour/tart. It wasn’t horrible or anything, but I have so many amazing teas in my cupboard that this one would probably go on my trade list. Probably great for some people, especially sweetened and iced. Just not my style.

Mmmmm! To be honest I was a little nervous about purchasing a watermelon flavored tea. It’s one of those things where you like the actual fruit/flavor of so much you are afraid to find out you don’t like it as a tea.

However, even with my fear I decided to go and try some of Kally Tea’s Wild Watermelon since it was at such a good price. I’ve never purchased anything from Kally Tea, but I can tell you from this one experience I will be making some future purchases.

Getting to the point, yes I would buy this tea again. It has a very nice “watermelony” flavor. I added a little bit of honey and it made it that much better.

Before I even began steeping this tea I had to take a nice sniff in the bag…lol (that sounds odd I know). And having a cold I was still able to smell the sweetness. I’m pretty sure it is because of my cold, but it took me a little bit to really smell the watermelon in there. At first it smelled like a cool aid powder, very sweet and fruity, but soon I was able to smell the watermelon coming through.

I like this tea a lot because I feel it tastes like it is supposed to. It’s not overly sweet, and it actually tastes like a good watermelon.
