From The Tea Girl

Organic Ti Kwan Yin flavoured with a complimentary melon to enhance the bright floral green of the large leaves of this curled tea. The tea is also blended with apple pieces, amaranth and safflower petals. Makes a very refreshing iced tea, and also offers multiple infusions.

Blenders Notes: In 2020, British Pop singer Harry Styles topped the charts with his summer hit Watermelon Sugar. There is some debate to the songs actual meaning, but if we take it on face value for its catchy tune and lyrics about tasty strawberries and summer feelings, I think the name fits. This tea has a natural juicy floral flavour that feels like it was meant to be paired with melon. The Oolong leaves leave no astringency and open up to fill the cup in the same hue as a watermelon rind. The tea can be steeped 2-3 times before running out of flavour. Also, did you know, August 3rd is National Watermelon day?

ingredients: organic oolong tea, apple, amaranth, safflower, flavour.

Sipdown theme: April: Favorite Jelly Bean flavor

I am actually not sure what my favorite jelly bean flavor is, it has been way too long since I have had one. So my tea pairing today is riffing off what teas remind me of fruity candies. So Watermelon Sugar sounded like a good option. I was really excited when I looked over the ingredients for this tea, it was Tieguanyin, apples and watermelon flavoring. I haven’t had an oolong blend in awhile.

Preparation: Western- Straight
Tasting Note: This is really interesting, it reminds me of watermelon jolly ranchers and the freshness of Tieguanyin. It’s really nice and refreshing. It is plenty sweet on it’s own which is to say the tea base has its own sweetness and the watermelon flavor does the rest.

I am having a lot of nostalgia with this tea and there is one specific tasting note that almost reminds me of pop rocks, that sort sugary effervesce. Don’t worry- there isn’t actually pop rocks or that fizzy candy, but a part of my brain just is reminded of it because of the watermelon flavor.

I think this is going on my wishlist.
