It’s a hot summer day here in Tampa, Florida and after one sip of the tasty hot tea, I immediately brewed a fresh pot to put in the fridge to serve over ice tomorrow. The dry tea is a beautiful blend of large fruit pieces. It smells like a watermelon jolly rancher (my favorite flavor). I am sure that my son would love this tea as well, but I don’t want to share!
This is what Tea Embassy has to say about this tea.
Refreshing and fruity! This herbal fruit tea smells like watermelon bubble gum but tastes like watermelon juice! Serve it as a fancy party beverage with freshly cut watermelon in each glass. Steep for about 10 minutes in boiling water.
The flavor of the tea is like a true watermelon. I had to review the ingredients again because I was so surprised that it didn’t include watermelon (ingredients: apple bits, carrot flakes, honeydew melon cubes, flavoring, beet root and strawberry slices).
I steeped 1.5 tsp of tea in my little infuser with boiling water for 8 minutes. I added 1 tsp of German Rock Sugar, but I don’t think it was necessary.
