From 52teas

Tea of the Week for April 4, 2016!

Spring is here and with that brings some fresh flavors – like Cucumbers and Melons! Last year’s Cucumber Cantaloupe Oolong went over really well, so I thought I’d like to bring the flavors of cucumber and melon together again but this time with a green tea base and with a touch of warm spices to contrast the cool fruit flavors of cucumber and melon (yes, cucumber is a fruit. I looked it up on the internet and I know the internet wouldn’t lie to me, right?) Then I added a touch of mint and lime to perk up the palate.

It’s sweet and gently spiced. It’s refreshing and it’s a little different. It’s really good.

Large size is approximately 2 ounces.

ingredients: organic green teas, organic freeze-dried cucumber, organic ginger root, organic peppermint leaves, organic lime leaves, organic crushed black pepper, dried habanero peppers and organic natural flavors.

Thank you Evol Ving Ness for sharing this one with me. I made it both hot and iced. My preference was for the hot tea which was smooth that had more body than other cucumber melon teas given the spice but is still refreshing in the summer. I found the melon comes out more in the iced tea and creates more contrast between the sweet cucumber melon and the roasty green tea base/spices.

Ayup, so…
I like the cucumber and I like the melon. What I am not crazy about are the warm spices which to me, translates as pumpkin pie type spices. Yeah, nope. To me, here, these strike a jarring note. I am wondering whether something peppery or more gazpacho like, like for example a hit of balsamic vinegar, would work more effectively here.

I would complain about the cucumber but then I wouldn’t get this one for just that reason :D I maintain that cinnamon/vanilla goes with anything and everything. (You said pumpkin spices and those are the first that popped into my head)

I got this tea in my mystery grab bag months ago and am finally trying it for the first time. Although I loved all the other 52Teas blends that came in that order, this particular combination of flavors didn’t appeal to me. Sampling it has confirmed that this isn’t for me. The flavors are well-done and exactly what the name promises: lots of cooling cucumber and honeydew melon with a bit of a spicy kick in the aftertaste. And the combination is actually quite pleasant! Just not something I’m likely to reach for again. Anyone want to take this off my hands?

Aw, I just had this the other day. I love it. If you still have it, you COULD add it to the HH teabox?

Inkling

I totally will!

Another Evol sample….

Upside of this one? LOVE the melon flavouring….but you know what i don’t need? SPicey melon lol. However, that being said, this is as close to it’s name as i think you could get. It’s really well done for what it’s supposed to be, just happens to not be what i want with melon. I did appreciate the spiciness in this one though…i imagine it paired with a nice solid black tea :)

Cucumber water is one of my favourites. David’s tea has a melon one, as well. Spicy and melon? Not as much :)

I never thought I’d call a tea with cucumber in it to be such an ambrosia! The balance of flavors here is perfect. Melon, cucumber, spicy habenero are the most prominent. Then once in a while, ginger lime and mint would make an appearance. All on the base of a fresh green tea. Perfect for one of the last hot days of the year. It’s such an awesome, unique flavor combination. I’m loving all of the new 52Teas blends I received in my grab bag. Cucumber?! I don’t even like cucumber (ginger either!) but it just WORKS here. I would have liked just a tiny bit more of melon to peek out though. I’m usually a fan of the heat tea blends though. An absolute tea magician created this blend. :D

“An absolute tea magician created this blend.” – aww, shucks! Thanks!

A while back professional chefs put out different flavoured waters. The cucumber water was my favourite. Just ice water and slices of cucumber, I believe. So fresh and delicious. I’m not surprised that it was good. There is a company that makes t bags with them. I will have to try it and review.

From the 52Teas reboot.

This is one that I put off drinking for awhile. In general, I am not a fan of any melons, except watermelon, so the melon in the tea had me a little hesitant.

That said, on my first steep of this, I was rushed out the door after making it and didn’t get to drink it until i came back, a few hours later. So, it was cold.

And it was one of the most refreshing teas I have ever drunk! The cucumber helps with that a lot, of course. I was afraid I would be getting way too much melon in it, but the melon adds just a hint of sweetness, not overpowering at all. The spice is nice and subtle too, just a tiny bit of heat in the background that contrasts with the cucumber and melon. It’s an excellent tea for a hot summer day (well, I’m in Texas, so technically, that could be just about any day of the year), and I’m very glad I gave it a try, even if it did take me forever. I may need to get myself a larger size of this one.

Steep #2: I wasn’t sure how the cucumber and melon bits would hold up to a resteep the next day, so I tried it. It’s nice. This time, the tea is lukewarm, since I didn’t leave it siting out for three hours before drinking it. The cucumber and melon are still present, though they aren’t quite as strong as they were yesterday. The bite is still subtle, but a little more present, today – I’m identifying it a little more distinctly as ginger or peppercorn, but I’m leaning towards ginger. It’s still very nice, and I think the heat helps the spices stand out a little more – I think they got a little muted in the cooldown yesterday. I think the cold tea upped the refreshing factor, though.
