Taster’s Review:

Well, the name of this tea captured my attention immediately:  Watermelon Kiwi Flavored Green Tea from Culinary Teas … um … yeah that sounds yummy!

And it tastes yummy too.  The watermelon flavor is sweet … almost candy-like. On Steepster, this tea is compared to watermelon Jolly Ranchers which is one of my favorite candies from my childhood.  Admittedly, one of the main reasons why I loved it is that my step-mother disliked the smell of it, but, my desire to irritate that woman aside, I also quite enjoyed the flavor of Watermelon Sticks from Jolly Rancher (do they even sell the sticks anymore?  I  only find them in the small “tootsie roll” size now.)

And this tea brings back those tasty memories for me.  I also taste the notes of kiwi and I like the way the two flavors meld together.  This is a sweet, juicy, fruity tasting tea … but I like that the flavor of the green tea is also present.  It keeps it from tasting too much like a fruit juice drink.  The green tea has a lightly vegetal taste with just a hint of earthiness, and this is a nice contrast to the sweeter fruit notes.

I couldn’t find this tea on the Culinary Teas website … I hope that means that the tea is temporarily sold out and not that it’s been discontinued, because this tea would make a delightful summertime tea – it is fabulous iced!  In fact, after taking my first few sips of the hot cup of tea, I decided to allow the rest to cool.  It was alright hot, but iced, it is a stunner!

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
