Troy’s Teaview Snapshot
Thumbs up!"There is both a slightly nutty and slightly sweet quality to this tea, that's probably the source of the 'Melon Seed' in the name, but what really stands out is the slightly grassy broccoli flavors with a slight citrus tone that grows at each additional steep."

melon-seed.jpgLike a well titled novel this tea was interesting from the start. Before you even take a sniff you'll be somewhat impressed by the long twisted leaves. These leaves look black on first view, but when looked at closely exhibit dark, rich, greens and unusual blues, they are surprisingly compact, well rolled, and seem to survive shipping extraordinarily well. The look of this tea would seem to say that its more of an Oolong than a traditional green tea. Generally Green teas aren't this dark, or possessive of such character in the shape and texture of the leaf, although the types of tea are each such a wide sea full of soo many fish that label breakdowns such as this are to be expected.

So despite the overwhelming desire to purchase these extraordinary leaves on purely aesthetic grounds, I'm sure you'd like to know how they taste. Well they taste sweet, a little bitter, and very crunchy. I decided, post crunching, that it would probably be a good idea to prepare these as is far more traditional. These leaves produce a medium green liqueur with a slight aroma of asparagus. There is both a slightly nutty and slightly sweet quality to this tea, that's probably the source of the 'Melon Seed' in the name, but what really stands out is the slightly grassy broccoli flavors with a slight citrus tone that grows at each additional steep. While this tea is fairly flowery, its really flowery on the finish. This is an excellent green tea that's approachable, easy to drink, and very relaxing. In fact I passed out 9 times while writing the review. Whats Narcolepsy?.
