Republic of Tea's Watermelon Mint Iced Tea

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!


  1. Oh, that sounds perfect for summer. I may be near a Whole Foods store tomorrow, if so, I will be looking for this tea. Yum!

  2. This sounds refreshing and delicious! I've never found a Republic of Tea flavor that I didn't like --- but this is an unusual blend that obviously works well! And I love the pitcher --- so very pretty!

    Enjoy your day! I hope it is a great one!

  3. It sounds like a very cooling combination!

  4. How refreshing for summer iced tea drinking! There's a tea flavor to suit every tea lover's palate. I love all the choices.

  5. Sounds interesting. Thanks for the review.

  6. Not sure I would have tried this. It sounds like a strange combination. Interesting and summery I would guess.
