The taste of summer

What would summer be without a thick slice of pink and green watermelon in your hand? Mingling honeydew, strawberry leaves and apple with generous chunks of watermelon, this fruit-packed tea is overflowing with juicy melon flavour. Try it on ice and get ready to dangle your bare feet off the balcony: summer is officially here.

Ingredients: Apple, carrot, watermelon, wild strawberry leaves, honeydew melon, beetroot.

Price per 50g: $8.98

Another cold-brew of this one, yum. It was feeling ok on the sore throat until I hit the bottom, where there were some particles that came through the bombilla, and now I keep trying to clear them out of my throat…. bleh.

I hate that I can’t even really do any sipdowns today because I suspect I’m not 100% in the tasting dep’t at the moment, and so it would just be a waste….

Iced 8 min or more

This definitely needs to be made strong. I think I just used 1 1/2 tsp earlier for iced tea…I even left the fruit sitting in there while it cooled and it’s just not as good as the first time. It just seems watered down, so I know it needs more. I want to buy more of this because it’s so good when it’s done right. It’s just so pricey in that case!

I had an interesting cocktail yesterday with watermelon pucker and cucumber vodka, shaken with chopped basil. I think with this in place of the pucker, it would be even better, since that stuff hardly tastes like a real watermelon.


Send some over! Nothing says party like a tipsy old lady!

Daisy Chubb

Watermelon and Basil! Such a tasty combo


Basil and mint in salad sounds not good but is good! My Lebanese friend fixed this for me in California and ever since then it’s a refreshing Summer staple salad!

Had this one steeped in-store and iced a few days ago and wasn’t overly fond of it, so last night I decided to use up the 18g or so I had left and make a pitcher. I’m in a “clean out my tea closet” kind of mood, so I’m focusing on drinking all of my samples and all of my bags that just have 1-2 servings left in them.

So I was making tea last night, and opened a drawer to get something. The cord of the electric kettle was wrapped around the edge of the drawer and it started to fall. Idiot that I am, I instinctively reached out to catch it and instead I caught boiling water over my arm. So much fail.

Anyway, this tea is juicy and good, but I don’t think it will be replaced in our cupboard. We’ll see how I feel about it after I’ve finished this pitcher.


Ouch! Hope you’re not hurt to badly!!


I hope it feels better soon. Burns are the worst kind of pain. Lots of cool compresses (and Ibuprofen!)


oh dear that’s terrible… Is it blistering badly? winces


It’s actually not blistering at all, but it is swollen and red, getting darker my the minute, and hurts like a mofo. grumbles So it’s not too bad, but it’s not too good either.


oh that’s really good. I spilled boiling water on my hand once and it was nasty. Doc said to keep it moisturized and apply vitamin E daily… my scar is gone now, thank god!


yeah, I won’t be covered my OHIP for another month (grumble), so we’re avoiding the doc.


oh dear. well it sounds like you’ll be ok, so just don’t let it swell! Ice Ice Ice baby :)


I burnt my arm with oil once when searing a roast. Horrible feeling. Definately keep it moisturized and maybe ask at the pharmacy if they have a cream you can get without a prescription to help it.


De spent a good half hour chatting with the pharmacist at Shopper’s last night XD. She’s such a good wife.

Too cold! Too cold!


awww, so sweet! xx
In this heat, I didn’t think I’d hear anyone complain about the cold!! lol but I hear yah, icing a wound is no fun at all :s


Sounds like something I would do (I probably have actually)! Feel better soon.


Thanks, it’s getting better and worse by the hour, weird little burn. Have blisters now, but it’s not hurting as bad, so…who knows XD

And yeah, I have the best wife in the world.

Everyone is making iced tea!
Why not make some too today?! My grandkids are coming over to swim in my pool (I planned my purchase of this condo so that we could have a good time!).

What better than some sweetened Iced Watermelon Tea with a twist.
A let the tea brew quite strong, chilled it awhile then poured half in a tall glass and added a few ice cubes and sparkling water to fill the glass completely! (It gets better) There is an option to add sliced strawberries for those who want it. Um yum!
Don’t you love being a big kid and drinking a chilled fruit drink and a glob of real fruit splashes into your mouth! I DO!
(I must admit that the sweetening is not sugar little Micah turns into an ugly creature with sugar and we can’t have that)
It is a beautiful, sunny high altitude day here in the Frontrange. I’m listening to my Spotify… to Pink Martini
…ah yes….and drinking the cool watermelon tea…so refreshing and light! Not artificial tasting…and no caffeine either! Cool….so…cool…

Later when I need it (and I will need it later) I’m going to listen to the best Tango music ever that a fellow Steepster shared with me THANK YOU! and drink a stronger tea with some brawn…and caffeine!


I am drinking a glass of iced Luscious Watermelon as I read this! And yay for Pink Martini, the first ever concert I went to was one of theirs!


So fun! Chillin!


Lol, it is so cool to read about enjoying iced tea with your grandchildren. How fun!


Ok…just checking in…I survived…it was the boys who came over…11,9,7,1.5
the last boy stayed home with dad 18 mo. (all the boys are adopted/foster and my jewels!). They drank up all my tea!

Ah welcome back Summer! Well, almost ;)
It sure felt like it today!

I spent a little too much in David’s stocking up on my favourites that I haven’t had in a while, but also I got 180g of Tropicalia so that’s probably why haha. Anyways – I did want to pick up a little of this.

Definitely delicious – but mellow. Melons! 100% best as an iced tea, in my opinion. But hey, all of my tasting notes are my opinion, so that goes without saying ;)

I’m distracted right now by the genius of Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Very distracted. So yeah – yum, juicy watermelon tea!


180g of Tropicalia? So random! I bought 3 of the 70g iced tea packs as I priced it out and it’s cheaper to buy the tea that way (unless there’s something different about it…. better not be!) But… MMMMM Tropicalia……

Daisy Chubb

haha I told her to fill up my tin and put as much in there as she could – it worked out to 180g because the tea is heavy to the max


wow that must be an expensive tea, and it’s herbal! ;/

Daisy Chubb

Truth – still, it works out to around 50 cent a cup (the way I brew it), so I feel okay about it :)


That’s good! I should work something like that out sometime. Far cheaper than a pina colada, that’s for sure…!

I am going to up the rating a little bit. I just finished off my stash from last year. If it is cold-brewed, it doesn’t come out as bitter as iced in my opinion.
It does taste fruity and like watermelon.
I wasn’t going to stock back up if it came back, but I have decided now that I will.

What? I swore I already reviewed this one.
I’m obsessed with watermelon. But artificially watermelon flavored things, nope. I always give away the watermelon flavored jolly ranchers. I like the apple ones, and speaking of that I’ve heard that’s what David’s new Apple Pie tea tastes like, so I’m definitely going to have to order that.
I’m also totally stocking up on this tea before it’s gone. It’s different than anything artificially watermelon flavored I’ve ever had. It’s awesome. It reminds me of watermelon juice.. but better. Not to mention it’s the perfect watermelon reddish pink color. Love it!

This tea is a pleasure to the summer time :)

Ashley Bain

Definetely. But with my watermelon obsession… I could drink this 365 days a year!

Ashley Bain

Which is why I just bought a tin that’s probably the size of a small planet.

I finally tried this one iced. It was rushed, I only let it sit in the fridge for half an hour and had to use ice cubes… No matter, the green melon still tastes fake to me. And the watermelon, well I dunno how I feel about the way it tastes when freeze-dried.
Refreshing yes. Tasty? somewhat. I’ll happily drink the last of it but shan’t be replacing it in my cupboard!
On a side note: I got a tattoo last night!!! On my hip, so nobody will ever really see it, but it’s there :)
I can’t wait til it heals!


May we ask…a tattoo of what? :) I had to get tattoos for radiation – it hurt. And they wouldn’t even give me a butterfly…


ouch. Was it just to mark the lines where it was required? maybe you can have it turned into something else down the road :)
Mine is a tree of life, covering up a scar I had which I think is apropos for this particular tat lol
I’ve named him Twiggie. Yes, I am a nerd!


Heehee! Love it! For radiation, they tattoo simple dots – I have four – in a line to get the machine in just the right spot. They run you in and out of a masking machine first while doing x-rays, then tattoo you. It wasn’t too bad until the one right ON the breastbone. OUCH! Felt like a wasp sting! I love that yours is a Tree of Life on a scar! So apropo! They won’t turn mine into anything else, because some of my lymph nodes were removed to check them for cancer, so I am supposed to be uber-protective of that arm for the rest of my life….nurses won’t even take blood pressure on it. But I use the heck out of it, and carry groceries, and dig in the garden!


ashmanra…your tatoos say that you are a survivor, and the plans for your life are yet unfinished. I would say that they are just as meaningful, if not more so, as the ones who chose what they had tatooed.

Indigobloom..Love it! I love to hear the stories behind peoples tats. I would have never gotten one myself, but I did on my 40th birthday last summer. For me it was more about knowing that I am not too old to drastically change my mind about somehting and live with it (I never even considered one for 39 years of my life.) I have the chemical formula of sucrose on my wrist right at the watch band line. My Hubby gave me the nickname of Sugar, and I am a chemist by training. Talk about a nerd tatoo……


SimplyJenW – I love your tat also! What a great idea! My youngest wears ThinkGeek shirts with the caffeine molecule in honor of tea, and we bought her the travel mug as well! And as for being nerdy – I told my hubby that if I were ever to get cosmetic surgery (which I have no plans to do), I would get elf ears! LOL!


@ashmanra – I would absolutely buy that t-shirt. :) I need to check out ThinkGeek!

Michelle Butler Hallett

Loving this thread. I wanted tattoos all my life, even as a little girl. I got my first one in 2006 to mark my first book contract. That’s been my promise to myself ever since: new book contract, new ink.


congrats on the tattoo :)


Ashmanra: ouch indeed! bones + tattoos = Owwww! glad you are ok now xx
SimplyJenW: omg I love that, nerd tats are the best :)
QuiltGuppy: me to!!!
Michelle Butler Hallett: same here, I’ve wanted one for years and now can’t wait for my next one! love your rewards system :P
PoliticalMachine: thanks!! I’m still reeling from the shock of actually making a decision LOL


congrat’s on the tattoo ; p


hehe thanks Ashika. I’m not sure how well you can see it in my profile pic but it’s there!

This is a special tea for me. Not because it is super delicious, but because it was the tea that made me start being an active member here on Steepster! Ashley (no longer active here on Steepster) sold me some of it because she had to get rid of her tea because she was moving. I was really excited to try it because I had read so many cool things about it and I can’t get any David’s tea here in Ecuador. So, one thing led to another, and I am here to stay on Steepster, but, as I realized this morning, I haven’t written a review for this tea yet!!!

The dry blend is really colorful and fruity. There are easily identifiable pieces of all kinds of fruits. Oddly enough, there are even carrots! It smells a bit like a mix of watermelon and banana candy. Very tropical fruity. It doesn’t quite scream watermelon, but it does flaunt its deliciousness as a fruity blend.

Once brewed I taste a bit more banana than watermelon, but watermelon is definitely there. It is super sweet without adding any sugar to it. Once iced, the watermelon shows up a it more. Sweetened it tastes like candy. I think that it could use a tiny bit of tartness to make the flavor stand out and make it seem less like candy water.

I really enjoy this tea, but it must be iced and only once in a while. It is super sweet, so when I want something sweet and fruity, this is exactly what I reach for. :)

Boiling 8 min or more
Daisy Chubb

I miss Ashley! She’s my FB friend – she’s moved around quite a bit but she seems to be settled and happy now :)

Daniel Scott

Yeah, this one definitely needs sugar to bring out the melon.


Ninavampi: I bought some tea from Ashley as well, and I enjoyed all of it (my first exposure to 52Teas and DavidsTea)! DaisyChubb: I am glad to hear Ashley is doing well.

Steeping my last sample of this beautiful tea. I bow down before you Luscious Watermelon and vow never forget your sweet watermelon taste.

Once again thank you Kittenna for introducing this tea into my life. :)


I’m glad you enjoyed it (and wish I had sent you more!)
