Big thanks to QuiltGuppy for sending me this lovely tea!! I’d been saving it for a special occasion and I don’t know why but today felt right.
It’s very light and refreshing. I think I can taste some of the melon but I’d never be able to pinpoint that on my own. It’s a solid white tea that I look forward to having again.
One thing that puzzles me is that at one point it tasted a tad bleachy, but that quickly disappeared as the cup cooled. I know melon can give me a chemical-ish impression, as does papaya (even more so)…. so perhaps that was why? Hmm.
Anyhow, I really enjoyed this one- esp when it was hot!!
EDIT: Ohhhh my goodness, the second steep was a totally different experience!!!! not so great when hot, but deeeeelicious and delicate and round and fruity and oh oh so good when warm but not yet cool. I am bumping the rating! I wonder what the third steep holds? :)
