drank Pomegranate Oolong by Harney & Sons
150 tasting notes

I recently placed a huge order on a tea impulse buy from a company clearing out their Harney stock. (Impulse buys? Me? Never!) I’m not mentioning that company’s name because my disappointment is in no way their fault. I didn’t realize that I was buying teabags in this tea blend and a couple others. I thought I was buying sachets, and now I’m super disappointed to have a 50-count box of this tea in individually wrapped teabags. Gish…

I’m also disappointed in this tea. The pomegranate flavor tastes really artificial to me, and the oolong is bitter. Maybe I got a bad teabag, maybe I over steeped it, maybe this tea is just better in loose leaf form (I don’t even know if it’s sold in loose leaf). This is not what I’ve come to expect from one of my favorite tea companies.

There could be many factors at play here so I’m not going to rate this tea now. I’ll try it again later because I want to believe that it can’t be as bad as I think it is at this moment. If any of you tea-obsessed kiddlets are a fan of Pomegranate Oolong, or if you just want to give it a try, please let me know because I have PLENTY to share.

Oh no Jenn that is sad news!! :(
Try one more time, maybe an iced version would be better? Or maybe after the inital disappointment passes?

I have this loose, but plan on using it for iced. Hopefully, it will make great cold brew…..

I agree. Try it cold brewed, you may be surprised. I have writen a blog recipe about on my site www.iHeartTeas.com It is so yummy and different than when you first heat it and then cool it. If you try it let me know what you think. :)

Rachel, your blog redesign looks great :) From all of the advice I’ve gotten, I’ll be trying this one iced next. It can’t be any worse.

DaisyChubb & SimplyJenW, here’s hoping!

Teawing, there’s some of this beauty in your package Mr. Sorry…

I love pomegranate and I agree with the rest. Maybe an iced cup or a cold brewed cup would be better.

I’m an animal loving vegan foodie, and a card carrying tea fanatic! Didn’t you get your card?

I typically drink my black tea with a splash of almond or coconut cream and a dash of turbinado sugar or stevia. My green teas I typically drink straight, and the same goes for most of my other teas with an occasional exception. I live on the edge!

Please check out my website Cookin’ Vegan at www.cookinvegan.com if you’re hungry.

I’m also a bit of a knitwit. I have an Etsy shop where I sell pretty little knitted and knitting accessories called Baubles 4 Knitwits at www.Baubles4Knitwits.etsy.com.
