My whirlwind 36 hour stay in Melbourne in 2014 had one must-see destination — Lupicia. The store sells black, green tea
One of these is the Lupicia Melon Oolong. It’s described perfectly by Lupicia as ‘a great combination of juicy melons and aromatic Taiwanese oolong tea’.
It takes only a whiff to know that the flavour is one of a green melon, perhaps a honeydew. It has the taste of a well ripened green melon without the excessive sweetness. While the smell and taste of melon are obvious, though, it’s equally obvious that it’s an oolong. That isn’t to say it’s a strong tea — it’s just well-balanced with a round flavour.
This bag of Lupicia Melon Oolong contained 50 g. The tea originated in Taiwan and was purchased in Melbourne, Australian in 2014.
