52Teas Loose Leaf White Tea 'Cantaloupe Watermelon'

Tea Information:
Tea: Cantaloupe Watermelon
Type: White Tea
Packaging: Loose Leaf
Company: 52Teas
Purchase: Here
Description: Cantaloupe is one of my all-time favorite fruits and so is watermelon, so when I had the chance, I just couldn’t resist creating this blend of premium white teas, dried cantaloupe, and organic cantaloupe and watermelon flavors. This is a serious glass of refreshment as an iced tea and I’m sure it’s awesome as a hot tea too. I’m already getting a little anxious for spring. I’ve got this week’s tea and next week’s tea already blended up, and they are both on the fruity end of the spectrum. But that’s all I can tell you for now.
