A friend gave me a sachet of this tea to sample. She received a tin of it from a family member and found it was going to be too sweet and fruity for her (simply not to her taste). I had been thinking of trying a Pomegranate Oolong from somewhere else, so jumped at the opportunity to try it quickly and easily.

The scent of the dry leaf is very sweet and the pomegranate tang overpowers the scent of the leaves. Once I steeped it, however, everything changed. The liquor is a nice light yellow/green and the aroma clearly displays the Oolong as well as a light amount of the pomegranate.

I was still a little worried that the pomegranate would overpower the Oolong, but I could not have been more pleased with the result! The balance of sweet tanginess from the pomegranate is perfect with the earthy Oolong. Both flavors are clear and full, while working complementary with one another.

Well done, Harney & Sons on this one!

Bio

I’m your standard nerdy girl in a lot of regards, from my taste in music, books, and movies to my penchant for getting completely wound up in various activities and hobbies. One of my hobbies that never seems to fade away is my joy in writing.

I’ve written a personal blog, a tea blog, and an adventure blog, all of which recently have been brought together to a single location – A Chomp at Life. The Fun and FlirTea section is dedicated to introducing tea to and enticing today’s younger, coffee-drinking generation. It’s a fun place to learn about tea and hopefully start meeting more tea-lovers as well!

More than almost anything else, I enjoy sharing the things I love and helping spread that joy. Now I’m doing this with tea, living life everyday, and adventures – and I couldn’t be more excited!
