drank Melon by Pickwick

Sweetish, hard candy flavour. Yes, there is a melon there, but hardly appetizing.
The taste is much more melon-like, but the most dominant note is wet cardboard.
No good. No good at all.

Flavors: Cardboard, Melon, Paper

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 5 min, 0 sec 2 g 8 OZ / 250 ML

drank Peach tea by Pickwick
156 tasting notes

Strong and sweet peach aroma.
There’s also a slight sweetness in taste,plus moderate fruity peach notes and some maltiness in the background.
All in all it’s not bad, but not fruity enough. Would probably taste better as a cold brew.

Flavors: Fruity, Malt, Peach, Sweet

Nice fruity aroma.
The taste is a mixture of decent green tea and fruits, warming and refreshing at the same time. Rather watery, but passable.

Profile

Bio

I drink tea almost constantly.

However, my tea drinking can be divided into two main categories.

1. I work a lot at my computer and when I work, I need to always have tea at hand. That’s when I drink bag varieties, mostly black blends, often corporate ones. They need to be at least drinkable, of course, but I don’t focus on the taste much, though I don’t go below a certain level…

2. When I read (and read a lot) or when I’m just relaxing, I savor tea. That’s when the better varieties come into play, that’s when I use leafs instead of bags, that’s when I really focus on what I’m drinking.

I’m Polish, temporarily living in Copenhagen, Denmark.
