Fellow sisters of the 90s, two words: cucumber. melon. Now, if you’re anything like me, you were just insta-transported to your bathroom cabinet stocked with matching body lotions, shower gels, and body sprays all smelling identically of summery melon cucumber goodness. And gosh darn it if this tea isn’t a dead ringer for that super-nostalgic scent. Full green tea leaves are perfectly paired with big slices of dehydrated cucumber pieces of this dry leaf, brewing up to a light and fresh, golden-y green. If you like your teas a little more savory, as-is leaves a perfectly fresh and delightful drink that is reminiscent of spa water, with more of an emphasis on the cucumber than the melon. With just a splash of lemonade, the melon is beautifully highlighted– and friends, this is like Bath & Body Works in a cup. It’s fresh and fruity and cucumber-y, with perfectly light and sweet honeydew melon undertones.
Who would I recommend this tea for? Frankly, if at any point you’ve had: a Lisa Frank binder, kept all your nail polish in a caboodle, or have squealed your way through a Bath & Body Works 75% off sale at least once in your life, add this one to your cart for summertime sipping. You won’t be disappointed!
