This is the last of the blends I ordered from Hella Tea – I ended up tasting it last because I realized, in a roundabout way, that I’d already tasted it before. Unfortunately this is one of a couple teas in my order that had an incomplete ingredients list – but I’m pretty damn good at visually identifying ingredients and when I realized it looked super familiar I did a little bit of digging and was able to match it perfectly to Adagio’s Watermelon Cooler blend…
So there are two options there – either Hella Tea is buying from Adagio as a wholesaler or Adagio and Hella Tea are purchasing the exact same tea independently of one another from the same wholesaler. Ultimately it doesn’t matter – I enjoyed Watermelon Cooler and I enjoy this blend as well. It’s refreshing, smooth, and surprisingly creamy with a mellow watermelon type of note. As I said in my tasting note for Watermelon Cooler, I do usually gravitate towards a juicier watermelon profile but this is something that I think you can drink a larger amount of at a time because it’s not as sweet and intensely flavoured – it’s more refreshing.
Happy to have it in my cupboard again!
