From DAVIDsTEA

If you ask us, the watermelon is king of summer. We know it’s a bold statement, but it’s true. No picnic, BBQ or pool party is complete without its juicy pink-and-green goodness. And this summer we’re giving you one more reason to think pink…a fresh and fruity melange of melon and apple, with a super-refreshing burst of peppermint. Try it on ice with a splash of vodka – it’s the ultimate summer thirst quencher. All hail the king! Limited edition.

Another sipdown and counting this as a limited edition or seasonal tea for ashmanra’s sipdown challenge. My sense of smell wasn’t doing too great on Friday, so I opted for teas that I already know I don’t super love. Even before covid messed with my smell, I remember finding myself struggling to enjoy this one. I got a watermelon blend from 52teas around the same time and found that to be juicier and more on-point flavor-wise by comparison. I also remember that this is better iced, though, so I brewed this up and waited for it to cool. Weirdly, I think having a weakened sense of smell helped me pinpoint why I didn’t love this tea to begin with by making me more sensitive to the sensations it produced. It leaves a very strong menthol sensation in the mouth that lingers long after the sip, along with an overly thick and sweet watermelon flavor. The overall effect is both very candylike and skews too heavily mintward. However! The bottom-of-the-bag steeps are different – more of a proper watermelon juice flavor and not as heavy on the menthol. So maybe if I had mixed the bag up I would have enjoyed this more.

(DavidsTea 2022: 118)

Definitely need to remember not to leave the leaves in the pitcher when icing this one! It gets too minty and I don’t like it. It’s not my favourite to begin with, but the melon and mint are better balanced with a shorter infusion (10 min, maybe).

Iced!

One of the weirdest things about coming back to Montreal after a week in BC is that it’s actually hotter in Montreal – so more iced teas for me, I guess?

Of DT’s many past Watermelon herbal teas I do find this one has a lighter melon note. Less overtly sweet and juicy, and also not as tart or tangy as some of the melon blends tend to be. It works with the subtle cooling mint finish, though and makes it more of a refreshing summery drink. More of a cool down on the patio and just lounge sort of vibe. Sadly I only have enough leaf left for a single hot cup, so this is probably my last time drinking it cold for quite a while…

Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts and feelings regarding the teas, and not the company’s.

So . this is a tea meant to be iced. Drinking it hot just not right. Some teas are versatile and hot or cold it will create a sensation in your mouth.

This is a lovely refreshing tea. I like the mint kisses. And just fruity enough poured over ice it is a great one off. Steep long and pour over ice every time you drink it. I bought the ice tea maker from dt and it was a great purchase the. Also always have like 6 full ice cube trays.

Soothing,nicely sour,a tiny tartness, minty kisses. Totally decent a lovely seasonal tea but not a must have for the cabinet.

Now, I don’t mind a fresh sprig or two thrown into a glass of iced tea, but dried mint is not for me. This tea was part of 2014 summer collection, and, since I’d purchased the boxed collection I thought I’d give it a try because I love melon-flavored teas. I was hoping that the mint wouldn’t overpower the melon, but, alas, for me, it did. I gifted this to my mother, and I will make it a point to avoid teas with mint – spearmint, peppermint, field mint, etc. – in future.

I really like fruity tea but this one is not for me. I do not like the combinaison of the mint and the watermelon. Looking forward to taste other watermelon tea thought.

I wasn’t sure what to expect. I’m a huge fan of mint, huge fan of fruity teas and adore watermelon. I heard that most people predominantly taste the mint. Personally, I definitely think it’s the perfect mix! It’s very nice as a hot tea, I’m sure amazing cold too. I definitely feel like I drink according to the season. Whether the tea is fruity or spicy, summer is for cold teas and the rest of the year is mostly for hot tea (for me).

It’s refreshing as a hot tea because of the cool mint taste, but you also get fruity notes which makes it a refreshing HOT tea. Love it, wish I could still purchase it, I’ve only got about 10g left of this tea but I’d definitely go back for a tin if I could.

I finished up my stash of this today :(

This tea is tasty! I like it very strong (we’re talking leaving-the-teabag-in-for-five-hours strong). I think that is when the flavors come through the most. I really like the melon flavor, it isn’t too sour which is nice. It is actually quite sweet even without sweetener. MMM! The minty aftertaste is perfection. I love it. This is a very refreshing drink and would make excellent popsicles in the summer (I’d make some, but I’m all out of tea :( so sad)

Overall, this isn’t the very best tea I’ve ever had, but I still enjoy it. I like how refreshing it is. I may stock up if they sell it this summer, but if they don’t, I’ve enjoyed my run with it.

Flavors: Fruity, Melon, Mint, Spearmint

Cold or hot, it’s a winner. I love this tea!

The mint is very strong but it doesn’t overpower the watermelon.

I actually quite liked this one! I thought the combination would be a bit of an eyeroll for my palate but there was the perfect balance between fruit and mint. Reminds me how I still need to try a mojito, but nevertheless, it wasn’t overly sweet, but I never picked up more out of sheer laziness. Well, it didn’t motivate me enough to get more, you know? Because it’s alright, but not amazeballs.
