Sipdown from VariaTEA! Trying to get one in every day that i’m at home. I pulled this one out as i was fairly certain i’d enjoy the cup. I was right. While i’m not a huge fan of oolongs, there are some that just work for me, and it’s usually either a good milk oolong or one that is combined with fruity flavours like watermelon and pineapple :) Thoroughly enjoyed this one – very much watermelon, though not too sweet. I think this one brewed and then cooled would probably make a really good cold tea as well.

I got this one from Cameron B, and I love it! It’s probably the most authentic melon taste I’ve experienced in tea before. The oolong doesn’t contribute much flavor, it’s just the tastiest melon. I can never buy DavidsTea sour watermelon again after this tea!

Thank you for sharing Cameron B! I am sipping on this next to my burning watermelon candle. I guess it is a watermelon sort of day.

This tea is certainly very sweet. And floral from the oolong. It is also slightly creamy which was unexpected. It has a lot of watermelon candy qualities to it.

Sipdown! (3 | 13)

This is a perfectly pleasant melon oolong. It does remind me somewhat of watermelon Jolly Ranchers, but not necessarily in a bad way. The oolong is nondescript, but smooth and nice enough.

Too bad for this tea, it could never hope to compete with my beloved Melon Oolong. Ah well, they can’t all be Lupicia teas. ;)

I LOVE THIS TEA!! This tea is so amazing. I love it so much.

The other day I steeped it up gong fu style. I wasn’t sure if it would work well but it definitely did. It held up so well to multiple steepings. I don’t remember how long I steeped it each time or how many times I steeped it, but I think it was something like 5/5/7/10/10/15/15… I’m sure it went up from there too. I found I was ready to be done with it before the tea was ready to be done. The flavour held up so so well! And what I loved about gongfu steeping is it wasn’t super strong but just right. It makes it light and sweet almost. You’re not over doing it and making it super strong. IT’s amazing how well it does.

Anyways, must go now. But SO happy to have this tea!

Sounds good! Do you buy this tea from a local shop? When I looked at their website, it said they only sell to wholesale, so I was a little confused.

Christina / BooksandTea

Metropolitan is one of the major wholesalers in North America. If you go to a lot of independent tea shops and tea rooms that do high tea, they’ll probably have this in stock.

Thank you! I haven’t been to many, but the next time I’m at one, I’ll be sure to keep an eye out :)

Cold brewed this over night, as I have it in my sipdown box (one teaspoon left and then it’s gone!)

This is really nice – melon and vegetal notes, with a bit of natural sweetness that isn’t cloying at all. Mostly tangy vegetal on the finish.

I’m reminded of my Cool Cucumber cold brew from the other day, but this is like a more mature, refined version of it.

Flavors: Melon, Vegetal
