Another old T2 tea bought during a deeply discounted sale. Prepared coldbrew.
I taste something melon-esque, but it doesn’t quite read as watermelon to me… maybe a somewhat muddled honeydew melon flavor? Mostly, though, this just tastes like a hibiscus mint tea, emphasis on the mint. It’s a very refreshing spearmint, but leaves a strong cooling menthol on the tongue each sip. It really dominates the flavor, and nothing about a “watermelon sorbet” makes me think of spearmint.
I’m fine with the taste, it’s a good iced tea, but it wasn’t what I was expecting at all. My head was thinking something heavily flavored with that fake “watermelon candy” sort of flavor used for watermelon things in the US, not honeydew drowned in spearmint leaves. If it were named “Minty Melon” I think I’d be more on board…
Flavors: Fruity, Hibiscus, Honeydew, Melon, Mint, Spearmint
