The scent of this tea is a little strange. It’s a bit like a berry bush, but with leaves and roots included. I’m glad that the taste is not as weird. It takes a moment for the flavor to develop on your tongue. Tangy, earthy and fruity. I’m a little disappointed that the flavor doesn’t taste like true pomegranate to me. I detect familiar flavors that I’ve tasted in Harney’s other fruit teas.. it reminds me of Cherry Blossom, but more earthy. Definitely drinkable, but not the best.
