I received a sample of Cantaloupe & Cream from Courtney about a week or so ago and I just got around to steeping a cup of it this morning. Initially, I was looking to steep something with an unnecessary amount of caffeine due to a certain four month old who felt that 6:00 am would be the perfect time to start her Sunday. I went with Cantaloupe & Cream instead because I was lazy and this was the first tea I saw when I opened up my cupboard.
The first thing I noticed about this tea were the little yellow flowers. It’s really a very attractive dry tea.
I was a bit skeptical in regards to what a cantaloupe tea would taste like but, again, the world of tea has shocked and amazed me. This tea was unlike any other tea I had tried and the cantaloupe flavor was delightful. do; however, have to admit that I couldn’t find any cream flavor to it, although this didn’t have any effect on how much I enjoyed this tea.
I steeped a second cup with the same infuser full of tea and I found it to be a lot less flavorful as the first. Perhaps if I had steeped the second cup for a few additional minutes, it would have made a difference, but it with still delicious nonetheless.
