drank Guava Melon by Shaktea
1908 tasting notes

ShakTea is a great little shop/tearoom located on south Main St. in Vancouver that I discovered on my most recent visit. They have nice munchies too (sweet and savory) if you’re looking for a light snack, though it’s a bit pricey.

Now this is a nice melon-flavoured tea – it’s sweet without being cloying or artificial-tasting (I’m looking at you Davids Tea). Using an oolong base instead of a more neutral white tea is an interesting twist and the one they use appears to be some sort of green oolong that has a pleasent smoothness combined with a lightly roasted flavour. Possibly one of the best melon teas I’ve tried yet.

195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 10 OZ / 295 ML

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
