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!
