“This was an odd blend—mainly fresh, juicy cantaloupe with an aftertaste of espresso. The flavoring was quite strong, and I couldn’t really appreciate the nuances of the Giddapahar base underneath....” Read full tasting note


We highly recommend Dark Side of the Melon for any cantaloupe lover. This tea has a wonderfully sweet cantaloupe flavor and a touch of espresso to add depth. The Limited Hand Rolled Giddapahar works seamlessly in this blend and adds a delicious malt flavor. The cantaloupe flavor lingers long after each sip.

Ingredients: Limited Hand Rolled Giddapahar (Indian Black Tea), Amaranth, Organic Natural Flavors (vegan)

Recommended Brew Time: 3 minutes 30 seconds
Recommended Amount: 1 level tablespoon of tea for 8oz of water
