I never thought I’d call a tea with cucumber in it to be such an ambrosia! The balance of flavors here is perfect. Melon, cucumber, spicy habenero are the most prominent. Then once in a while, ginger lime and mint would make an appearance. All on the base of a fresh green tea. Perfect for one of the last hot days of the year. It’s such an awesome, unique flavor combination. I’m loving all of the new 52Teas blends I received in my grab bag. Cucumber?! I don’t even like cucumber (ginger either!) but it just WORKS here. I would have liked just a tiny bit more of melon to peek out though. I’m usually a fan of the heat tea blends though. An absolute tea magician created this blend. :D

A while back professional chefs put out different flavoured waters. The cucumber water was my favourite. Just ice water and slices of cucumber, I believe. So fresh and delicious. I’m not surprised that it was good. There is a company that makes t bags with them. I will have to try it and review.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
