Thanks so much, AJRimmer! I should have saved my sample for summer – this was refreshing! Certainly melon flavor and very sweet while not being cloying. The description includes hibiscus but the resulting brew is almost clear – not even a hint of pink. I like this odd mix of fruits. The result is quite pleasant and unique. The melon is definitely in the front seat. The second steep was just as strong in flavor.
Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons for a full mug // 14 minutes after boiling // 3-4 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // many minute steep

So I was able to order a handful of Davidsteas that I wanted and that is my cyber monday tea ordering for the year. I tried doing a second order for a handful of teas but they were giving me “risk management” alerts for the rest of the day. Maybe the risk management should start at three orders? So I missed some other teas (including this one) and the birch mug but I ordered some teas that I really wanted anyway.
Edited to add: And when I mention risk management it sounds like I ordered a ton of teas… I promise, it was only a few. The total was $18! So it is odd that Davids has this policy on two orders, especially if the first order wasn’t that much.
