Tea of the Week for April 6, 2020!

Our first tea from our “Celebration of Spring” Collection!

Our final new tea for our Celebration of Spring collection – this blend starts with organic Chinese Sencha green tea – to which I added chopped bits of air-dried watermelon & cantaloupe. The result is a delicious melon flavored green tea that can be enjoyed either hot or iced (I personally prefer this one iced!) Sweet, refreshingly light & tasty.

I like this because it isn’t too sweet – it doesn’t taste like a candied watermelon and/or cantaloupe. It tastes very true to the fruit. A beautiful melon medley that’s organic, VEGAN, gluten-free & allergen-free!

organic ingredients: green tea, cantaloupe, watermelon & natural flavors

YUMMM! I have been so eager to create a melon tea for some time now, but I wanted to wait for spring because it’s very much a springtime (or summertime) flavor. It would have seemed odd (at least to me) to have a melon flavored tea in the fall or winter.

This tastes like fresh cantaloupe & watermelon. It’s sweet & juicy tasting. I like that I taste the fruit very clearly, but there is also the sweet, creamy, light flavors of the Sencha. It’s a fantastic combination of flavors.

to brew: use 2 1/2 grams to 12 ounces of very hot water (heated to 170°F) & steep for 2 minutes. strain & allow to cool for 5 minutes. for iced tea, allow the tea to cool completely & then refrigerate.

This tea tastes amazing without sweetener. I did a taste test – trying it both unsweetened as well as sweetened. A small amount of sugar will enhance the cantaloupe & watermelon flavors – not a bad thing at all – but if you prefer to not use sugar, the fruit flavor is still there & it’s quite delicious without addition.

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.
