Dry, this tea smells strong of Ceylon tea and candy like blackberry scent. Brewed the tea is much more pomegranate smelling. Slightly sour, not too sweet.

The hot brewed tea tastes like tart pomegranate, but not so tart it is puckering. I added about 2 tsp of sugar and chilled over ice. The iced tea tastes of slightly sweet but still tart pomegranate. There is still a candied blackberry taste. The Ceylon base is medium strength under the fruity flavour. It is just bordering astringent. Brewed this one for 4 minutes in 24 oz boiling water.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
