I’m hot steeping this one, so I broke open the teabag to parcel out a teaspoon. I like having cantaloupe teas on hot days, but the other 52Teas I’ve had with cantaloupe is better but that one was really really tasty. First of all, the green tea is scary tiny. I expect bitter, but if it’s steeped under a minute, it isn’t astringent at all (even if so many of the leaves escape the infuser and end up at the bottom of the cup.) It’s a solid green with equal parts berry and cantaloupe flavors. But I feel like either flavor could be stronger.
Steep #1 // 1 tsp // 30 minutes after boiling // 45 second steep
Steep #2 // 30 min a.b. // 45 second steep
