Perfect Picnic Tea – This tea captures the essence of summer with the natural, fresh sweetness of sun-ripened watermelon finished with a touch of cool peppermint. A smooth base of fine black tea rounds out this bold, bright, refresher. This tea is only available in refill bags. It is the same tea as our Watermelon Mint Large Black Iced Tea Pouches, only in round tea bag form.
Black Tea has less than half the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee. More about caffeine.
Steeping black tea is easy. Simply heat fresh, filtered water to a rolling boil. Then pour water over tea and steep for 3-5 minutes if using a tea bag or full-leaf.
Fine black tea, peppermint leaves and natural watermelon flavor

I must admit that I haven't been a fan of flavored black teas in general. But I received this product as a sample and decided to try it because of the watermelon. It is fabulous! The mint and watermelon balance nicely, but you do have to like mint to enjoy this. As one reviewer noted it tastes like a summer picnic and is a new favorite! The first note is sweet watermelon, the end note is mint. The fact that it's a black tea doesn't come through at all.
Summer in a Cup!

What a surprise! I don't usually care for peppermint, but decided to give the sample a try due to my love of watermelon. The tea was wonderful, and the mint not overpowering. I've found a new summertime treat.

I got this as a sample for "iced" tea and I wasnt paying attention and made it into hot tea. I LOVED it. After realizing my mistake and noticing that they didnt sell this tea in hot....I contacted The Republicof Tea and they now have the hot tea. It has a wonderful flavor that is perfect for summer evenings. I highly recommend it.

Delicious! I made two glasses of iced tea with one teabag, poured over ice. It has a delightful watermelon flavor and a twist of mint that is very refreshing.
Tastes like a picnic on a summer day.
