I had my list of teas ready to select when I went into Chado Tea Room. (I usually buy 1 oz sample sizes and buy up to 8 teas at a time. And buy more when I’m done drinking them.) I’m so nice I even took a friends list of teas to pick-up.
This tea wasn’t on my list nor was it their in store Tea List but made it there when the tea assistant said is there anything else you would like to try…hmmmm…no rush he says…lol there was only 20 mins left in his day! What about pomegrante? He said that they have a white tea flavored w/ pomegrante. I said, Yes, I’ll take that! I didn’t even smell it or ask the price. I just said I would take it.
Pomegrante is one of my favs. I like to spend time taking it apart when eat it fresh. =) I try really hard not to lose any of those arils. I also enjoy Pai Mu Tan white tea.
I tired the tea serveral times since I got it. (8 oz size cups) I liked it unsweeten and sweeten with sugar. The tea brews to a light brown color and smells really nice. Sweetening w/ honey may have been a mistake since the honey had orange blossm flavoring. I think I put too much honey in the tea making it too sweet. I stuck with just plain white sugar cubes.
The flavor is sweet & mild. There is an evenness to the flavors mixed in the tea.
Drinking it cold was great as well – so I will have to make this into an ice tea on those hot summer days of ours.
I think this tea will be ordered again when I go back to Chado =)

Bio

Like most everyone I started out drinking Lipton tea. On a trip back to my home state of Oregon, I discovered Stash Tea Company. I liked them because they were from my home state and the flavors that I found. =) On a trip to Paris, France, I stopped by Mariage Freres. I had my “Ahhh” moment. The gentleman asked what I liked – at the time Earl Grey. My eyes went wide when he picked up this barrel of tea & shook it, opened the lid and said smell. I was in love. My first taste of loose leaf tea was Imperial Earl Grey. I took a break from tea but continued to drink Stash Tea.
Another door to explore opened with the discovery of Jane Pettigrew’s The Tea Companion: A Connoisseur’s Guide. I started marking off the teas I tasted in her book. I have purchased other tea books as well but Jane’s book has been the one I have always returned to for teas. I had the pleasure of picking up Jane’s new updated version of the book at the World Tea Expo. I look forward to tasting more teas. =)
