From Bird & Blend Tea Co.

This tea is refreshing, juicy, lip-smackingly delicious + sweet just like a watermelon should be. Blended with peppercorns, freeze-dried strawberries + pomegranate flowers, it is truly one in a melon! Tip: try me cold brewed with a drizzle of honey.

Ingredients: Chinese sencha green tea, black peppercorns, freeze-dried strawberry, pomegranate flowers, natural flavouring.

Brew the perfect cup: 1 heaped teaspoon per cup – 80° C water – 3 mins – no milk

Prepared hot unlike the others; two teaspoons, hot, but not boiling, water.

Straweberries and pomergranate → melon? Well, yes, a bit I think!

The tea was nicely grassy, noticed quite strawberries and even the melon flavours. They weren’t super pronounced, but they were there.

Actually it was very tasty and nice for, this time exceptional, weather. We had small thunderstorm around the noon, but in the afternoon the skies cleared and was nice weather to have coffee/tea outside on the porch.

Flavors: Grass, Melon, Strawberry

Hooray for nice weather!

White Antlers

I do love a good summer thunderstorm, but where I live, it just gets more sticky humid after the rain. We’re hunkering down here for a heat wave, so Martin, enjoy your lovely weather for an over heated soul in the U.S.

A Berry Frui-tea July! I got a sample of this from a cupboard sale from tea-sipper and this heatwave seems the perfect time to cold brew up a batch (this constant weather over 90 degrees is getting really old).

The dry leaf has a noticable melon aroma, but is also quite fruity and sweet. The brewed tea smells much the same, like fruity berries, melon, and sweet. The tea is naturally sweet, and tastes just like one of the Starbursts that is in the berry medly assortment, though trying to pinpoint which one would be a bit hard… perhaps a cross of the strawberry and the watermelon? I’m getting both melon and berry notes, but it has a sort of candy-like sweetness to the over-all flavor which is reminding my palate of those Starbursts. It’s quite refreshing and does make me think a little of a fruit punch from the flavor, except the mouthfeel is much lighter and silkier, thanks to the smooth sencha base.

It’s a very enjoyable iced tea, with quite a unique flavor. I was pretty surprised with this one.

I cold brewed this and it tastes like watermelon that somehow seamlessly transitions to the white tea base. I both really enjoy it and don’t love it at the same time. Actually, the more I drink, the more I get soapy white tea. So, not my fave.

I’m happy to see that all of Bluebird’s teas have been changed to their new name Bird & Blend. (I thought it was the Steepster overlords but it was actually Crowkettle and Mastress Alita who had to change each tea— awesome job!! I would have helped if I knew that Steepster wasn’t going to change them all at once.) I’m hoping it doesn’t create too much confusion now that Bluebird had to change their name.This was from Bluebird’s Boxing Day sale! And I’m glad I’m able to try it! It’s certainly a great summer blend but also looks very festive. Very green and red. It’s also a very unique blend. I’m not sure if the pomegranate flowers should actually taste like pom. But otherwise there is some sort of melon flavor here, along with some strawberry. Hints of pepper keep it interesting. And the buttery sencha base is just to-die-for perfect. Both steeps had plenty of flavor to savor. I love my melon teas and this one is a different beast than the others — a great combination. Ah, I’m in tea heaven with this one on a hot day.
Steep #1 // 1 .1/2 teaspoons for a full mug// 31 minutes after boiling // 2 1/2 minute steep
Steep #2 // 25 minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep

Flavors: Butter, Melon, Pepper, Strawberry

Mastress Alita

Steepster didn’t change them; as I recall Crowkettle did, and I think I caught the last few remaining ones. It is up to us users to have to individually edit aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaall those records to get mass changes done around here.

tea-sipper

Oh my gosh, I thought it was Steepster! Awesome job Crowkettle and Mastress Alita. You are diligent. :D

this tea is confusing to me. Not sure how strawberry and peppercorns are supposed to make me feel melon. It’s not what i was expecting for sure. first, the base green tea comes through really strong, which for me, isn’t a plus as i’m not a huge fan of green teas. Then in terms of flavour there sort of a generic flavour that is pulling things together without being a specific taste that i can place. And finally i get hints of strawberry. Overall, not what i was expecting of a MELON tea :(
