Watermelon Mint Black Tea Bags
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
What our Citizens are saying about this great gift of the leaf...
This is probably one of the best teas I've ever tasted. The smell is amazing. I was a little worried before I ordered this flavor, and actually thought the tea bags smelled pretty awful. But after brewing...goodness. I'm pretty sensitive to large amounts of caffeine - usually I stick to two cups of tea a day - but it's been worth the jitters to drink it all day. I'll definitely keep ordering.
My new favorite tea along with the strawberry basil green tea. Brew in hot water then pour over ice to serve cold. So refreshing! I will be drinking this a lot this summer instead of water infused with fruit!
Thank heavens for the tea samplers you periodically send with your catalogue! Otherwise I would not have had the pleasure of trying this wonderful tea. I love all things tea, all black tea especially, but am not usually attracted to mint flavoring...but wow! This one is amazing. I've "made" people try it and they can't believe the aroma, the taste, the combination that glides down their throat. A keeper for sure and I'm now ordering more! Only wish you had a canister for it.
Our Family Favorite
I loved the sample I got a bout a year ago, to be honest I didn't think that I was going to like the flavor combo and almost tossed the sample before trying. I'm so glad I gave it a shot. So I ordered an tin and it was gone in less than 2 weeks. And now it seems that I can't order enough of it because its my little son's favorite iced tea, his second is the ginger peach. It has a natural sweetness and the mint notes are so refreshing. I personally love the smaller tea bag size vs the larger iced tea bag size. I have better control over the strength and flavor this way.
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.
