Either I’m in a fruity cold brew mood, or maybe I’m just in a “clear these little sampler packets out of the cupboard” mood. This is another free sampler 5g packet from a past DAVIDsTEA order, that I cold brewed in 12 oz. of water in the fridge.

I think I got a better mix of ingredients in this packet because my tea actually has a nice red color this time. I can certainly smell the melon from the cold liquor. It’s actually much sweeter than I was imagining, so the flavor is reminding me of watermelon Jolly Ranchers… a melon candy rather than fresh and bright melon fruit. The sweetness tastes like cream to me. There is a sort of herbaceous taste in the finish, after the sweetness subsides a bit, that reminds me a little of the mint/citrus/peppery taste of tulsi, but it is subtle.

I’m liking this a lot more than expected, given that it is much sweeter than I was expecting. I don’t think it’s something I’d purchase, just because I have other melon teas I like better, but I wouldn’t balk if any other samplers of it ended up in my hands.

Sweet watermelon candy sounds yummy for a cold brew! :)

I’m a fan of this one I have it stockpiled in a bin in my basement.

I wanted a tea lemonade and while I considered exploring a new tea for one, I decided to go with a classic.

I got this as a free sample in a previous order before they stopped giving free samples. The flavor is light and definitely mostly melon, though I don’t prefer it to their other melon blends. It’s light and mostly like cantaloupe. Pretty decent! Not very lemony, though I’d still prefer one with no lemon and even more melon.


yeah, I noticed with my last two orders, what the heck happened to the samples?


It’s a bummer because it was such a good way to try new teas!

I like this one. Its not the best I have had from daivds, but if you have a hankering for some melon this will sure hit the spot. The “ade” part of the name must just mean its delicious, there is no lemon taste whatsoever. Fine by me as I wanted a mainly melon tea anyway.

Infernal carrot! I redeemed one of my Frequent Steeper rewards for this blend despite the appearance of carrots in the ingredients list. Cantaloupe is so tricky in a tea, and I adore melon teas. It’s been a few years since DT’s released a LE melon tea I enjoyed. I believe Sour Watermelon (summer 2017) was the last one I bought in bulk. I probably would’ve been tempted to purchase more had I not been able to taste the carrot.

I will also add that I don’t get any hint of lemonade in this blend. Perhaps the citrus note is masked by the astringency of the green tea base.


Flavors: Cantaloupe, Carrot


What’s wrong with carrot? Lol


There’s nothing wrong with carrot. I just don’t care for it as an ingredient in tea.

Sipdown of a couple packages of this tea as an iced tea; the flavour comes across to me as honeydew and very much like the Japanese “melon” flavouring. It’s pretty good but I feel like a smidge of lemon or lime juice might improve it just to add a bit of tartness.

Drank at work – from my office tea stash.

I wonder if there’s anyone here on Steepster who’s been laid off because of the Corona outbreak? I talked about it a little yesterday, but I’m having a hard time with the guilt of still working when most DT staff have been laid off & in talking to my coworkers/friends at DT on both a store and head office level it seems REALLY mixed whether people are relieved to have been laid off (for some of the reasons I brought up yesterday) or absolutely seething – it would be good to hear some opinions from people in similar situations at other companies?

This was good though – sweet and melony, with a distinct cantaloupe note and cooling finish. I’m really focusing on teas that make me feel good and less stressed when I drink them right now; I’ve felt so high strung/anxious for days now. I know that we’re all struggling with what’s happening in the world right now and all of the ripple effects of that, and that just adds to my feeling of guilt about having such a rough time right now…

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.


I am not laid off; my workplace is ‘essential’ so we’re still open though with limited hours to the public. I’d argue the only essential services we provide are done so in two of the three departments I work in. Are your coworkers lay-offs financially covered by any entity?

The majority – though sadly not everyone – should quality for EI in the interim, and Canada has changed the waiting period for EI so that everyone is able to apply immediately. I think that’s what you mean?

Martin Bednář

Kind of laid off. But as a student, there is still something to do. At home. Self-study. As for my inventory checks – I am still worker, but there are almost none – because the maximum of people in one place is 30. That said – we can do only small shops, because if you count people doing the check + some people from our company + some people from the customer – you get over 30 very fast. So, not much opinions to work :/


I’m sure its hard not to feel guilty, but here is a chance to pay it forward. You can keep in touch with your co-workers and see if they need tea or anything else. Just a text or email may brighten someone’s day. I’ve been sending cheesy jokes to my friends, not sure if it actually helps…

As a disabled person, my income hasn’t been affected. My parents, however, both had part-time jobs that are shut down, and a ton of money in the stock market that just dissolved. They aren’t really hurting right now, they had a large cushion, but I fear that if the stock market doesn’t stop eating itself they will be in some long term trouble.


Please no guilt, Ros! Like you say, it’s the entire world right now. If anything, you are taking risk going to work every day. Please be safe!
