As promised in the description, this does taste (and smell) a bit more like candy than it does something that would be considered true to the fruit. Not necessarily a bad thing, because I like watermelon and green apple jolly ranchers.
The green tea stands out, though, which I didn’t really anticipate because a lot of times the flavored teas are more about the flavor than the tea. Here, this is definitely TEA with flavor and not the other way around. Sweet and vegetative, notes of grass, and hints of butter.
The apple and watermelon notes weave their way through the sip. I taste more watermelon than apple during the sip, and in the aftertaste, it’s all about the apple.
It’s a good tea. Not my fave from 52Teas but they can’t all be my faves. I’ll enjoy it as long as I’ve got it in my tea stash though.
