Guava and pomegranite? Count me in!
This was another vacation tea (it’s possible I have a problem). After spending some considerable time trying to figure out which bag of tea to take home from Local Coffee and Tea, I picked this one because it sounded more exotic than what I’ve found in Chicago. I love guava and pomegranite so I thought it would be perfect. I was slightly sad that I couldn’t smell it (duh, I could have just opened the bag) but I figured I’d take a chance.

Here’s my beef with non-black teas: I like flavor. White and green teas always smell heavenly and strong but they always seem to disappoint when it comes to taste because the smell just doesn’t seem to translate. This tea is nice, but I wanted something that had some more flavor to it. Yes, I realize that this makes me a tea pedestrian, but I don’t care, it’s my tea and I’ll flavor if I want to.

Nice tea, but too subtle for my tastes so this will end up sitting in my cabinet much longer than it would have it if were a black tea.

Hello!
I’m Amanda, and I’m new to the world of tea. I got sucked in by a sample at Teavana and have been exploring ever since. I prefer loose tea but will slum it with the occasional, high quality bag.

I live just outside Chicago with my husband and our dog.
