I prepared this one for strength, so the lime and base have an edge of tart green bitterness that translates a little into tonic fizz. The melon flavouring sometimes drifts into tasting like a less flavourful melon or cantaloupe (think those blah white edges close to the skin), but it also does a fine job tasting like a watery but sweet watermelon. The lime pleasantly comes out more as the cup cools, and the bitterness fades away almost completely.
It’s a pretty nice summer blend, but I won’t lie and say I wasn’t hoping for something more along the lines of Butiki’s Watermelon Xylophone. The loose leaf smelled so good.
