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.
