From Dessert by Deb

When we think spring and summertime picnics, we think sunshine, easy breezy care-free fun, and did we mention bright, juicy fruits, florals, and ice cream? Indeed we did…like watermelon in a mouthwatering sorbet! This sweet oolong and green tea fusion is bursting with ripe fruit and a touch of soft floral that just might dribble down your chin with a few scrumptious bites (or sips!). Ti kwan yin oolong meets goji berries, papaya, and jasmine for a juicy sweet treat tea – enjoy it in a tall, cold glass, a teacup, a punch bowl…or all three!

Ingredients: Ti Kwan Yin Oolong, Papaya Pieces, Natural Watermelon Flavour, Jasmine Green Tea*, Goji Berries*, Plum & Red Cornflower Petals* ( * = certified organic)

Handcrafted in Toronto, Canada.

Steeping instructions: 2 tea spoons at 200F for 3-5 mins you can enjoy me as an iced tea!

Sipdown! (114 | 211)

Deb was kind enough to include a sample of this one at my request, since it only comes in 75g bags and I’m not willing to blind order that much.

It’s tasty, but mostly it’s just a watermelon oolong. I only taste a tiny hint of grassiness from the green tea, and no jasmine at all. The watermelon is very candylike, like a watermelon Jolly Rancher. Based on the taste and the distinctive flower petals in this blend, I think this is the same wholesale watermelon oolong that I’ve had from another company previously.

It’s enjoyable, and I’m sure it would be yummy cold brewed as well, but not something I would order. Still interested in trying the lime version though!

I should ask her to do this next time an interesting 75g exclusive comes out from DBD. I am slowly getting through this one but I just got the lime slush too. Its really good cold brewed though.

Ooh, interested to hear how the lime one is!

Cold Brew!

Realizing right now, in this moment, just how heavily I fixated on different melon flavoured teas over the course of this vacation…

This tastes heavily, heavily familiar to me and I think that maybe I know why but I think I’ll need to taste it a few more times in the future to be totally sure. Regardless, I thought the watermelon flavour was just phenomenal. Definitely sweet and candy like, with that Jolly Rancher edge that just tastes so good cold brewed. It’s almost got a bit more of a berry undertone to it, like strawberry, but perhaps that’s my brain imagining things because of all the goji berries that have been added to the blend (which are beautiful).

I don’t actually taste nearly as much jasmine as I expected to, and the heady florals that do come through are mostly backend undertones that merge near seamlessly with the natural floral character of the greener oolong base. In a way, that’s a relief to me. I think the combination of jasmine and watermelon is really interesting, but I would not have wanted it to overtake the melon at all and the more nuanced floral elements actually makes it come off as much more elevated of a profile than an assault of jasmine would have.

Colour me impressed!

Regarding the tasting familiar part, I haven’t tried my sample of this yet, but the leaf both looks and smells very similar to the Metropolitan Tea Company watermelon oolong wholesale tea that I’ve tried before. And the ingredients seem to align as well, so maybe Deb used that as a base for this blend?

Roswell Strange

Yes, I’m about 99% sure that’s the case ;) It’s a fun balancing act of not wanting to out ALL the different sources of the tea companies I buy from – it’s almost a little too easy to identify the wholesalers they’re working with now, heh…

Cameron B.

Yeah true, this one is a bit difficult to hide with those plum flowers that I don’t think I’ve ever seen in any other tea, heh…

Really enjoyed this tea! It’s heavily candy-watermelon flavoured, with jasmine as more of an undertone, and the oolong base gives it some great depth (the green likely had an impact but I wasn’t tasting carefully enough to notice). A handful of delicious resteeps as well, and the watermelon stuck around. I’m excited to try it iced at some point.
