So what is a Persian melon? My first encounter was while I was at an Iranian Bazaar looking for carpets. After a full day of bartering, my good friend served us a meal of crusty Barbary bread and creamy goat cheese. He then served us a cup of steaming tea with a slice of Persian melon. The light, sweet flavor of the Melon was perfect for the pale infusion of the lightly smoky white tea; not too sweet and not too bitter. It was a fine end to the day, and if you are interested I did find a fantastic carpet that is in my living room today.
White tea scented with sweet melon nectar
Golden Moon's White Persian Melon tea is a luxurious delicacy that is light, refreshing, sweet and fruity and truly exotic; somewhere between honeydew and cantaloupe. Unlike other melon tea the flavors meld together in a sweet and gentle blend. White Persian Melon tea is very refreshing iced on those hot Summer days.
We use a large white tea leaf that is green and light brown in hue with an abundance of silver tips. This white tea base has a delicate yet complex flavor with subtle herbal notes and a hint of smokiness. The quality of the leaf is outstanding; it is robust with capacity for multiple taste rich infusions. The flavors meld together in a natural Yin/Yang way and provide an entrance to the mysteries and pleasures of the Middle East and Orient.
Drinking our White Persian Melon tea is an enjoyable experience characterized by a smoothness that is hard to describe. One is left with a tea drinking memory based upon the quality of the blend, the character of the leaf and the significant health benefits realized by drinking this tea.
