N is for… Nice Melons!
Cold Brew Sipdown (1398)!
I’m currently working my way through this cold brew and it’s just not very enjoyable for me right now. The green tea, with it’s sharp freshly mowed grass and oceanic/marine notes, is too aggressive for my tastes and the melon is only present in the finish as a tasty and welcome reward for gritting my teeth through the greener top/body notes. I can’t remember if there was more melon when this was fresher, but it’s possible it’s just lost some of those notes with time. I think my brew method has also exaggerated the greener notes, which doesn’t help.
None of this is to say that I think the tea is bad – it’s just another ones of those blends where I have some bias since I don’t enjoy green tea much. I knew that would likely be the case when I ordered it – none of this is a surprise. I just enjoy 52Teas’ melon blends a lot, and was curious enough to roll those dice. If you don’t mind green tea, I think this could be a really refreshing choice with some delicate melon flavours.
Happy to pass the rest off to someone else so they have the chance to experience it and have more success than I did.
