Hmm… this is an interesting tea. It is tasty enough, certainly, but it doesn’t really have a strong, distinctive pomegranate flavor to it. Vanilla is a warm, creamy note, but not really strong… but it is certainly a more distinct flavor than the pomegranate. I taste more lemon here than I do pomegranate (interestingly enough, in this blend there were large, freeze dried lemon slices … why? I don’t know, but they did impart a distinguishable lemon-y note to the cup).

The black tea base is a strong flavor, relatively smooth and even-toned. My guess is that it is a Ceylon.

It is a delicious tea, even if it does suffer from an identity crisis of sorts. Even though I’m enjoying it, though, I can’t give it a really high rating because I was really hoping for more pomegranate.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
