June is National Iced Tea Month, and if you're looking for a new iced tea blend to try, I've got one: this Republic of Tea Watermelon Mint flavor I found at Whole Foods.
I couldn't quite imagine what a combination of watermelon, peppermint and tea would taste like, but I was intrigued enough to try it. This black tea blend is just a cool, refreshing taste with what I'd call a suggestion of watermelon and a hint of peppermint. It's really a most subtle flavor, yet very nice. I don't think I'd up either flavor if I could!
The tea comes in 8 (1-quart) pouches, which we are instructed to steep for 3-5 minutes, let cool and serve over ice. I don't do that. I plop a bag in my tea pitcher, fill it with water, leave it in the fridge overnight and I have delicious tea the next morning!
