Try to say melon-oolong more than once. Melong-noolon, menon-oonong, nelon-moonong …hope you can do better than this. But really, how many times can you get it right???
Despite the fact that this tea makes me sound like I’m speech impaired, I have nothing but love for it.
Think about that smell when you cut through a ripe juicy cantaloup or honeydew melon. The smell is so sweet and sunny.
I always say melon is a summer trap, and cutting it open is like setting summer free.
The nice creamy slightly floral oolong base is the perfect companion to this “hard to get right” flavour. Cucumber notes cut through the sweetness of this tea. If you are not a fan of melon things, stay away. If like me, you think things are never “melony” enough, than indulge in this juicy marvel of a tea.
Can’t wait to try it cold brewed!
This is part on my first Lupicia order, and so far, I am impressed. And believe me, it takes a lot to impress me with flavoured teas.
(Too bad shipping to Canada is so expensive!!!)
