This was a delicate flavored tea. I had it before bed and I think it was the perfect tea for that time. In both the dry leaf and the brewed liquor, there is this faint undertone of melon. The first steep, I didn’t get too much of the melon flavor, mostly the white-green tea blend. The next few steeps however is where the melon came out to play. I imagine this is because the dehydrated melon pieces in there didn’t get fully saturated upon the first steep.

It is interesting because when I think of melon, my mind automatically associates watermelon. But this was more of a cantaloupe melon. Less juicy and more of an earthy rind type of cantaloupe/melon flavor. I apologize if that makes it sound bad. It isn’t. It is just a bit different than what my mind conjured up upon reading Melon Punch.

I would recommend this tea as long as you aren’t expecting a fruit punch type of watermelon flavor.

I have now completed some tea swaps and I am so totally up for swapping! What a cool way to connect with fellow tea lovers and try some new teas. My tea cupboard on here is woefully out of date though.

Black tea has been my go to tea for some time. Oolongs are good too but mainly roasty oolongs. I’m finding that there are some green and white teas (mostly Moonlight Whites) that impress me lately which they never used to do. I am getting into and developing a taste for Pu-erh. I have tried raw and my Ulcerative Colitis just can’t handle the roughness of it. So I stick to ripe Puerh. I am recently drinking more herbal tea or Rooibos especially STRONG ginger blends. I’m not too picky.

Some of my favorite places from which to purchase tea are Whispering Pines Tea Co, Verdant, A Quarter to Tea, Beautiful Taiwan Tea Co, Bitterleaf Tea, and Yunnan Sourcing.

Rating system:
90-100: Some of the best I’ve ever had. I’d be a fool not to keep it stocked as often as possible
80-89: A damn good tea. Not to be missed
70-79: A good tea but lacks the wow factor. More than likely a simple tea that could be an every day option
60-69: Eh. This is okay. Not swill by any means but fairly underwhelming.
50-59: Not really doing it for me. I’ll finish it but please don’t bring me any more.
Below 50: Life is too short to waste on things such as this
