From Yunomi

It smells exactly melon. Drinking cold is our recommendation because you can enjoy flesh flavor of melon.

The Great Cupboard Excavation
Untasted teas remaining: 9

Wow, getting really close on trying all of these older teas. I’ve been slacking a bit because of my Bird & Blend order… Plus I’ve been drinking two advent calendar teas every day and recording the notes to be posted in December.

Hmm… I’m not sure I really get melon from this one. To me, it’s more of a combination of light bubblegum and banana flavors. The base tea is definitely a later harvest sencha or bancha, and has a grassy and somewhat dried leaf flavor. Ooh, now I am getting some melon near the end of the sip, and it’s lovely and creamy as well.

An interesting combination of flavors! There is a little bit of bitterness after the 2-minute steep recommended by the label. I see the directions on the website call for a slightly shorter steep, so perhaps they revised them after I bought this.
