drank Pomegranate Green by Bentley's
526 tasting notes

I got this tea for Christmas a few years ago from my boyfriend’s mother. I love pomegranate and green tea so she got this for me. I like it hot and cold. I find it interesting to prepare because I always have the tart pom taste at the back of my throat when I get done.

This time I wanted to prepare it differently since it is cooler here but I didn’t want to drink another hot tea. I made a larger cup and steeped the tea with four tea bags. Then I filled up my blender with ice, squirted some agave into it, poured the tea over it, then blended it all together. It was pretty good like that. I still got that pom tang at the end but something tasted a little off.

So, when I finished I added a little bit of milk, some white sugar (I like my cold teas sweet), and a splash of vanilla extract. I blended that for a few seconds and that made all the difference. The milk brought more of a body to the blend so it wasn’t just iced tea with crushed up ice. The vanilla also smoothed out the tart punch at the end and added a little bit of flavor. And the sugar made it sweet enough for me.

I wouldn’t make this mixture very often but it tasted pretty good. It was almost like a smoothie for me. It made about 3 big mugs/glasses of drink and was cool. It would be good on a very hot day.

I like Steepster, but I find that I come and go as I please. I might spend months on here and then disappear for no apparent reason. It depends on how busy my life is.

I have been moving solidly into the loose leaf tea territory lately and loving it. I have a french press I like brewing my teas in and I have all of my teas straight with no additions the first time I try it.

I like to try everything and I am starting to like everything. I love black tea, green tea, white tea, oolong tea, yerba mate,and honeybush. I’m still not the biggest fan of roobios, but that is probably because I haven’t found the right brand yet.

If you are curious about more than just my tea selection, I am on multiple sites.
