Hmmmmm… I don’t know what it is about this tea because back in January I LOVED IT. Seriously, I got some of it to try from starberry and immediately went to the store to pick some up. Only to find out that this particular flavor has been discontinued, or at least I couldn’t find it on Liptons website, the internet in general, or any nearby store. BUT, it was at Starberry’s walmart so she picked up a couple boxes for me.
I brought it to work because I haven’t been drinking my bagged tea at home a lot; I just have so much loose leaf now! I figured this would be a great way to get through the neglected teas in my cupboard. Yesterday, I cracked into this stuff and was surprised at how.. grainy? it was. You definitely get that melon taste at the end, but the first sip is bitter. I thought that maybe I just oversteeped it yesterday since its a green tea and I might as well have just left the bag in my mug with how long I steeped it. Today though, I steeped no more than 4 minutes with the same result.
I DON’T KNOW! Maybe after drinking so much better quality teas I’ve just become a prude, haha.
Anyway, the mediocre work tea list ever expands!
