by Christina Rylan

Type: 2.5oz Clamshell Melts
These melts were purchased at Walmart
First impression of Sparkling Iced Tea:
Iced tea scents can be very refreshing but tricky to get right in wax. I’ve tried a few good ones and not so good ones. When I saw Sparkling Iced Tea at Walmart, I was skeptical at first but as soon as I smelled the wax, I was intrigued and purchased a few to review. The wax smelled like a sweet lemon tea and it seemed pretty authentic. SOLD!!
I couldn’t find a scent description on Walmart’s website so I can’t post an official one with this review – – sorry. The pictures are there but that’s it. I will tell you this… popping open the lid and smelling the wax, it truly smelled like Lipton’s sweet lemon tea. I liked it a lot and can’t wait to start melting.
Which happens right now!
Melting Sparkling Iced Tea:
I used the entire clamshell pack (3 cubes each) in two electric melters in my great room. Once melting, it took quite a bit before the aroma started to become noticeable. I found that interesting since Better Homes & Gardens melts are usually pretty strong. After a good hour or so, finally! The aroma started to hit me and a sweet lemon tea filled my great room. The one negative, it was so subtle, it kind of teased me, making me wish it was much stronger. Up close to the melters, a very sweet lemon tea, heavy on the sweet wafted all around me. Once away from the melters, same but lighter. This iced tea scent was very realistic, nothing fake about it. I was just very light.
Which brings me to strength – I would rate Sparkling Iced Tea from Better Homes a 5 out of 10 in a really large room. Crazy right? I expected this one to be a 10 out of 10. My advice, if you give this scent a try, stick to medium or smaller rooms for the best scent throw. That’s what I’m going to do.
Sparkling Iced Tea is a limited addition scent so if you want to give this one a try, don’t wait too long. Limited addition scents are usually only around a few months.
In closing – loved the scent. Wished it was stronger.
Overall rating: 3.5/5
