From Zen Tara Tea

Bitter melon (Momordica charantia) is a tropical plant that produces a gourd fruit resembling a cucumber with bumpy skin. Used as an ingredient in soups and stir fry dishes, the melon is true to its name with a distinct bitter flavor. Dried and brewed as a caffeine-free tea the other flavor notes come forward and the bitterness disappears. The melon is full of healthy compounds and helps moderate blood sugar levels.

I must have steeped this too much, which I normally end up doing with my tea anyway because I am easily distracted by shiny things. Good thing I like tannins! :-)

But oversteeped, this tastes like bitter melon, which I love, so I’m happy with that. I’m going to have to pay careful attention to this one to get it steeped right. Iced though, I could taste some different notes besides the bitter, although I’m not sure what yet. There is a fullness to it. I’m going to have to report back about this one after I coax some other flavors out of it!
