Oh my goodness! I don’t think I’ve ever liked a green flavored tea so much before.
The dry leaf smells absolutely amazing. Like, if it was a freshner spray, I’d be first in line to buy it. Anyway, it smells just as you’d expect. The lemon and the honeydew scent blend together in a heavenly way, and the sweet, earthy scent of the green tea meshes nicely.
Ok, now down to business. Brewed this one for 2 minutes, give or take, and it smells great. Very citrusy. This tea, unlike many melon flavored teas I have tried before, doesn’t contain that overpowering funky melon taste. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some melon, but if that’s all I taste in a tea, it kinda throws me off. Anyway, in this tea, the melon is balanced out by a nice citrusy/lemon taste. The green tea base is perfect for this cup, as it’s smooth and sweet, with just a hint of earthiness to it. The grassiness of the tea doesn’t overpower the other flavors. Anyway, I find this a light, refreshing cuppa. Having it tonight after working a long, stressful shift, and it’s definately making me feel more relaxed. I wish this was still available, but unfortunately it seems I got the last sample of it. Hopefully it’s back next year.

Helpful hint for this tea (if it’s ever available again): Drink it when it cools down a bit for a better flavor profile.

Started brewing loose leaf tea about seven years ago. Excited to share my experiences and learn more from everyone on here!

I’ve found I Prefer:

Oolong Teas
White Teas
Green Teas
Black Teas
Flavored White Teas
Flavored Black Teas (depending on the base tea)
Flavored Oolong Teas
Certain Herbals/Tisanes

I’ve found I Dislike:

Bitterness/Astringent Teas
Strong Floral Teas
Fruit Tisanes (at least hot)

Matcha and Rooibos teas tend to be hit or miss with me. I guess it depends on the tea and my mood.

That being said, I’ll give anything a shot!

When I’m not brewing/sipping tea, I’m usually reading, listening to music, working, or in the summer, kayaking/camping/hiking! I also enjoy a good movie now and then. I’ve got quite the collection going. It almost rivals my tea collection! ;)

I’ve only just returned after quite some time away – Steepster stopped working for me in 2013 and I FINALLY remembered this password and was able to get back on here in 2017. But I’ve been drinking tea all along the way!

Happy steeping!
