I've been pretty good resisting the seasonal teas that have been released this summer. But my love for all things watermelon compelled me to purchase Monarch Tea Co.'s "Summer Fling" oolong tea.
This watermelon-infused oolong tea has a strong fruity scent.
Ingredients: oolong, papaya, plum, safflower petals, natural organic flavours (watermelon?).
A 3-minute steep produced a very light coloured tea.
The oolong was light and had a refreshing, watermelon flavour. The packaging says "Best enjoyed over ice" so next time, I'll try it as an iced tea.

I found this teacup at a church sale a couple of months ago.
The pretty, colourful flowers screamed "SUMMER!"
Are you drinking any summer teas?
