This is from my split order with tattooed_tea that I’m finally getting to. I’m not gonna’ lie, I sort of lost this in my cupboard. LOL! Well, there’s no time like the present! The dry tea aroma isn’t quite as potently watermelon as it used to be when it first arrived, but I can still identify it.

The taste is very subtle and light. There’s virtually no aftertaste though, which is a bit odd. I’ve only encountered this aspect in Liu An Gua Pian teas. The aftertaste I can detect is from the watermelon flavoring and not the base.

This is a lovely tea and definitely worthy of the V.I.T. (Very Important Tea) distinction from 52teas. I’m surprised there aren’t many tasting notes on here considering this is fairly old. Did everyone else lose this tea in their cupboards too? Anyway, I really like it, and I’m glad I have a good bit of it to enjoy. Thanks again, tattooed_tea!!!

Entering the sweet blissful world of tea aromas!

Having discovered this website at the end of July 2011, I’m so excited to share my tea adventures with all of you! I grew up with my grandmother serving Twining’s English Breakfast with cream and sugar.

But on a trip to Seattle in 2010, I stumbled into a Chinese teashop and tried my first oolong tea. I was forever changed! I embarked on a startling new love for green and white teas.

With a world of teas to discover, I was inspired to keep a tea journal to record my thoughts and new favorites. Let’s get brewing!

My ratings are completely subjective and 100% my opinion. All ratings are given in relation to each other (ie. teas are rated in the order of my enjoyment of them). Therefore, my ratings will constantly change as I try more teas.

I love swapping!!! If you see something in my cupboard you’d like to try, just send me a message. If you’d like to trade, anything on my shopping list will do or feel free to send something else entirely. I’m willing to try almost anything (although I’m not really a fan of honeybush, red rooibos, pu’erh, Lapsang Souchong, & banana-flavored teas).
