I got this from Cameron B.! Thank you! This one looks really exciting. 153 reviews and most of them are glowing. Seeing a lot of 100’s!

I definitely needed something caffeine free this evening after an ill-advised cup of black coffee. Now, I don’t really like rooibos unless the added flavors drown it out. Something about the aftertaste. Though green rooibos, like in this tea, usually isn’t as bad. I’m trusting you guys on this one.

The tiny green and brown needles smell very melony, with a funky kind of musk that’s hard to describe. Though as the tea steeps, it fades away, leaving behind sweet fruitiness. I taste honeydew and cantaloupe in the most realistic way. There is nothing remotely candylike or artificial about it. Just natural, wonderful melon. The rooibos is gentle and in the background, keeping this from tasting like pure fruit juice.

I find myself thinking this might be like Harney & Son’s Earl Grey Supreme in the way that I’ll never find another tea that nails the flavor so perfectly. Lupicia has set a standard for melon tea in my head now.

I’m so glad I have enough to make this again, but over ice… though someone mentioned coldbrewing it and that idea is sounding very, very good.

Bio

Quiet, strange, and in love with the world of tea. Living just outside of Atlanta. Cat lover, electronic music geek, balcony gardener, and collector of fossils. On the hunt for the perfect tea in each of my favorite categories.

I have officially been here on Steepster for 10 years.

I prefer black teas, and my preferences change with the seasons. I drink my tea iced from April – October and hot during the few cold months.

You can assume that I’m preparing my tea using the Western method. I use stevia or honey as my sweetener. My tea cupboard always contains earl grey, chai, a sleepytime, a dessert, something fruity, an herbal, and a plain black.
