I did not care for this at all.
DT has just been all over the place with their melon teas lately. Don’t get me wrong. I adore melon teas. Many of my all-time favorite teas are melon blends. That said, some of DT’s melon teas are great (Sour Watermelon, Melon Drop, Honey I Dew…), but most have been so underwhelming as of late.
Let me start by saying that I knew I wasn’t going to be a huge fan of this because…carrot. Ugh. It’s in everything and it makes my taste buds so very unhappy. In addition to that, watermelon is probably my least favorite melon to be featured in a tea.
Dry, this tea’s aroma is giving me shades of Bath & Body Works’ Cucumber Melon body splash. Once steeped, it’s very melon-y and sort of tongue-tingling tart (from the pineapple, I’d assume). I don’t taste the fig much, but the carrot is so present on my palate…and, again, it lingers. I had a few sips and dumped it. I just couldn’t force myself to finish the cup.
I’m so happy I have a stash of Honey I Dew and that Melon Drop is permanent because most of these LE melon blends from DT are just not doing much of anything for me.
