Really Tastes Like Bubblegum

    This really isn't a bad tea! And, as you can see based on other reviews, this is a tea you will either love or hate. I enjoy this tea iced, and it has a very refreshing but bold taste. It definitely tastes like bubblegum instead of watermelon and mint however. The scent is extremely reminiscent of the taste.

    To those concerned about artificial taste, you probably shouldn't get this tea. Teavana, for whatever reason (cost, availablility, etc.), chose to replicate the flavor of watermelon. Did they succeed? Most certainly not.

      Disappointing

      Pros

        Cons

        • Artificial Taste

        Best Uses

          This sounded like the ultimate iced tea to me: fresh, fruity, minty, with "chiller" right in the name? Perfect.

          Alas, it is not so. This tea does not taste like watermelon. It does not taste like mint. I'm not actually sure what it tastes like, except sugar water.

          The good news? It doesn't taste repulsive. It doesn't have enough flavor to be repulsive. But it doesn't really taste drinkable, either. For this price, that's highly disappointing.

          Worst tea I've ever tasted!

            This is something I would never even accept if it were free. It is literally the WORST thing that has ever touched my tongue. Me and my roommates (there are 5 of us) all with different tastebuds all agree that this was miserably disgusting. It tastes EXACTLY like CHERRY COUGH SYRUP. Smells like it too. It leaves your tongue slightly "numb" feeling. Tastes very similar to the stuff they give you at the dentist's office to numb your cheeks.

            New to blended tea's, I usually buy my teas in a grocery store, black tea is my favorite....I will have to say this was horrible, for my first time trying loose leaf tea, did not taste a bit like watermelon, I could taste the mint faintly. The smell was amazing. But kinda disappointed. This was my first purchase and I will have to say I'm very unhappy to have spent money on this. I will end up giving away or tossing it. I tried it cold and than hot (big mistake). I will continue looking for that perfect tea.

            I bought a cup of this iced at my local Teavana and it was surprisingly great. However, it was a bit sweet for me, and I have a big sweet tooth. Granted, they did add rock sugar to it, but they added a "light" amount (2 tsp maybe). It might be better without the sugar! I wouldn't drink it enough to buy 2oz of it, but it is a great cool off and would be perfect for the summer.

              I chose this tea because of the mint and eucalyptus. Love it. It's smooth and refreshing. Didn't expect to like it so much!

              Not Watermelon or Mint, But Bubblegum

              Many people either love this tea immensely or hate it with a profound disdain. This tea does not taste like watermelon with mint. Changing the temperature of the tea does not improve the flavor. I think if the company wants to adjust the tea to the description of the flavor, they should add more watermelon to the blend and switch to a different mint. For now, do not buy this tea if you want mint with watermelon.

              The tea tastes like bubblegum. You know, the pink cubes/sticks you would chew for 15 minutes then stick to the bottom of the desk. If there was a "Back to School"-flavored tea, it would be this one. I enjoy the novelty very much. I'm pretty sure I will continue to buy this tea for the nostalgia.

              Keep water temp low

                    When Teavana says to brew this tea using 175 degree (F) water, they mean it. I made several batches using "boiling" water and the tea was bitter.

                    I followed their directions (on the 3rd try) and it is better, especially with some sweetener added.

                        I got a tin of this last summer in the Exotic Iced Tea collection. Here it is, summer again, and the tin of Watermelon Mint Chiller is still sitting in my pantry, with not a single leaf missing. I brewed this one time when I first got the set, and I hated it. It tasted like stale, dirty, sweaty gym socks were stuck in some hot water, and this cup is the result. It smelled awful, and it wasn't any better poured over ice.
                        I must confide, I'm obsessed with tea. Pretty much all types - white, green, oolong, spicy chais, fruity florals, jasmines, and straight-up pure teas from white to yellow to black, as well as rooibos and mates. That being said, this tea and Opus Rouge Rooibos are the ONLY two Teavana teas in the history of my loyalty as a customer that I cannot stand to smell, brew, or sip.
