I had to be a bit more gentle with making this cup of tea than I’m used to. Because of the gentle care I had to take to infuse this tea, I was worried that the flavor wouldn’t be much of a pay off. Taking the first sip of tea, however, I can see that I had nothing to worry about.

I won’t lie, I got this tin at T.J Maxx, mainly for the pretty tin that it came in. Don’t judge me. When I got the deal home, I started to worry about the actual quality of the tea I had bought. I didn’t want a flavorless cup of tea, so I allowed the tea bag to infuse for thirty seconds longer than the instructions told me to. Tasting it, I can see that I probably could have gotten away with just letting it infuse for the two minutes that the instructions said to do..

I was afraid that it would taste gross, artificial, but drinking it gives you a good blast of white tea and, as the title suggests, pomegranate.

Unlike the last two cups of tea I ended up dumping down the sink, this tea doesn’t need a sweetener to make it drinkable. No; even though I am sure that it would enhance the already yummy flavor, it is still great to drink as is, freshly infused.

I’m not the biggest fan of white tea, but I still love this tea. I think I would enjoy tasting this brand’s other Ceylon teas as well, and it was a great idea, after all, to buy the tea and not just the cool tin it came in.
