A really surprising treat this morning!
Love this tea!
Full review going up on http://sororiteasisters.com/ on the 16th but here are my snippits:

Pomegranate Splash from Phoenix Herb Company is such a refreshing treat! It reminds me of everything about spring. It has this awakening, light, lovely flavor and aroma, that truly refreshes and makes you feel alive.

The first sip was like drinking in a ray of sunshine! Clean, crisp, refreshing, and fruity! The flavor of Pomegranate is spectacular! There is no artificial flavor here and I am choosey about that! I really was not anticipating having a flavored tea this morning but as I looked through my teas, I kept being drawn to this one and I am so glad I went for it. I have had three cups so far – two being re-steeps and I am finding that the tea is actually making me quite perky and cheerful! There is nothing like a really good cup of fruity flavored tea in the morning. Granted I generally trend more toward straight blacks, with the malty depth and complexity, but it is nice to wake up with a cheerful cleansing tea.

Well I am impressed. Both with this tea and with Phoenix Herb Company! I have made it my personal mission to make it INTO their store one day soon, but until I can, and do, I have plenty of wonderful teas to sip on as their prices are excellent as well.

I will! Sean was wonderful in email communication – what a doll! I can’t wait to feel the vibes from the shop too!
What is your favorite tea from them?

It’s been so long and it was back when I was just getting into teas. Since then I’ve switched offices and it’s not convenient to get to the shop. :( I’m pretty sure I had a darjeeling blend of some kind. I remember having a favorable impression overall of their teas but being concerned that the teas were stored in clear glass jars. The selection was quite impressive and perhaps since the shop is long and narrow the sun doesn’t do much damage. :) I bought more bulk spices from them than tea, if I recall correctly. Excellent prices on those as well.

I really do need to stock up on my herb as well! Can’t wait to get in there. Yeah the storage in the glass could be a concern but as long as they are not hit by light and cool(ish) they should be fine. Especially if they go through their stock reasonably fast. So far all the teas from them I have tired – which is only three now – have been great so I don’t think they have been effected by the way they are stored.

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/
Posted every evening at 6 EST.
I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
