drank Watermelon Lime by Fusion Teas
3700 tasting notes

Happy father’s day!  I should probably be drinking Lipton for the challenge today (sorry, Dad) but I don’t have any Lipton… and probably wouldn’t want to bother steeping it up if I DID have it, unless I was desperate for tea.  Instead, I will write a note for this old tea from StarFevre (thank you!) I bet this was a real gem when it was fresh.  Even now, the lingering lime and watermelon make you wonder why this isn’t more of a common combination.  Supposedly there is green tea here, but I don’t see much.  Otherwise, the hibiscus and rosehips don’t take over, which I’m thankful for, leaving a tangy yet refreshing cup.  I don’t notice stevia here.    I do notice the lime. I do notice the watermelon (flavoring at least) and it’s such an intriguing batch of ingredients I was holding my breath to look at Fusion’s website….. annddd… they DO still have this one for sale!  Good to know, but probably won’t be ordering any time soon (hopefully they still have it in stock when I DO want to order, because there are quite a few that I do want to order….but there are so many teas I want to order from various tea shops. If only there was a universal tea shop that sold ALL the teas from ALL the tea shops…would make things much easier and shipping much cheaper…)

My icon photo is Richard Mayhew from the graphic novel ‘Neverwhere’ by Neil Gaiman, Mike Carey & Glenn Fabry.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

I’m always in search of: Hattialli, Qu Hao black, Jin Jun Mei, teas using marshmallow root.

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. (Or as evidenced by the great computer hiatus of 2019, something happened to my computer… I have a dumb phone so can’t access internet on that. As of 12/20/21 my wifi might start getting unreliable.)

Happy sipping!
