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.
