I added a box of this tea to my fiancee’s birthday basket last year. He loves green tea, and enjoys a cheap cup the same as an expensive one, so I figured we’d try it. He loves it, and is always happy when I make him a cup of this. This is my first time trying it. The dry teabag unfortunately has that artificial, chemical smell just underneath the pomegranate aroma. I also thought it was odd that the instructions listed on the box said to use boiling water, which I’m doing even though I know it’s wrong. The steeped tea smells like very tart hibiscus, yuck. There’s a bland fruit flavor that is immediately followed by a really icky, musty artificial taste that lingers. I tried adding some sweetener, which actually helped a lot, but I can still taste the chemical taste at the end. It does diminish a little as it cools. I actually find it really funny that my fiancee loves this tea so much, bless his heart!

Bio

Just a Southern girl who loves sunshine, little dogs and all things tea!

I love animals and animal rescue. We have a rescued Chihuahua, Greyhound, Siamese and 2 Tabbies. We also foster kittens for the local humane society.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)

“Come, let us have some tea and continue to talk about happy things.”
