Relaxing after work and after having been craving green tea all day I thought it was the perfect call to try this tea. Looking at other drinkers reviews I can see that this tea is like Marmite and I will either love it or hate it.

The tea’s sachet states to steep the bag for 2-4 minutes.

Apples are notable in the fragrance with slight berry-like undertones (which must be the pomegranate). Deeply red in colour this tea contains green tea, apple, pomegranate, hibiscus, rose hips and licorice root.

While tasting fresh and fruity I am having trouble detecting the full ingredients with the most important one being the pomegranate (considering this tea is called green tea with pomegranate). Just as it was smell wise, apple is the most dominant flavour by far. A slight bitterness can be found amongst the after taste which I believe to be the green tea.

While being a nice sweet yet grounded flavoured tea It’s name seems a little misleading. I would personally suggest re-naming this tea to ‘Green Tea with Apple’ as that would be truer to form. But still overall a refreshing drink… just a shame about the pomegranate (or lack there of).

As long as the tea doesn’t have too much hibiscus…….I’d probably like it. I’m not a big hibiscus fan.

There is only a very slight taste of it which is mostly in the after taste. The apple in it was nice though and made all the difference.

ch3rryprinc3ss, we just wanted to say thank you for your review of our Green Tea w/Pomegranate. We will certainly share your observations with the lack of actual pomegranate flavor, not being as pronounced as should be in a tea which is after all, Green Tea, with Pomegranate. We really do appreciate your feedback, thanks

Profile

Bio

I’m 26 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.
