Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea!
This is a very nicely balanced pomegranate black tea. The pomegranate tastes authentic, it doesn’t taste fake nor does it taste over-done. The black tea is strong and brisk, no bitterness and very little astringency to it, although I am finding that the astringency does develop as I make my way down the cup. The first few sips had very little astringency to them, but now there is a little more. Still not overpowering though.
A really nice cuppa!
Absolutely more honey than lemon flavoring in this. The honey aroma is VERY intense. The honey taste is also strong. The lemon is noticeable but not strong and the green tea flavoring is somewhat lost in the background. This is OK but not very memorable. Then again…I’m usually not into honey flavored teas unless they are incredible remarkable!
Smells like orange and green tea. Tastes like grassy green tea, a little orange, and almost like a gingery type spice. The orange is slight yet pleasant. I think I would like it better without the spices in it and it just being orange flavored green tea. BUT…I do like this one better that most of the Tea Nation Teas overall…so far.
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea to try!
It has a nice aroma – a little soft but smells nicely of cranberry and also has a light, fresh leafy fragrance in the background. It has a good flavor – clean green tea taste, light on the astringency, and a pleasant sweet/tart taste from the cranberry. Nothing overwhelming, a very good, light tasting tea.
As much tea as I drink, I still am finding teas in my cupboard that I haven’t logged and/or have to add to Steepster. I’ve drank this one quite a few times, and just realized this morning that I haven’t logged it at all.
The papaya and passionfruit flavors are well done: subtle, but authentic, and really enhance the green tea base. The green tea itself has both nutty and grassy notes, with a slightly buttery finish. It’s a bit more astringent than many other green teas I’ve had; I think it adds to the tea rather than detracts. Overall, for being a Wal-mart find, I’m pretty happy with it.
So, I’m finally getting around to writing about this tea. I find it a very light Earl Grey but I like it a lot better than Stash’s Earl. It is very nice to drink before bed and at any time of the day really. I bet this would taste a lot better if I didn’t have to estimate steeping time but I have been rushing at college recently. Maybe next time I’ll be able to slow down and actually enjoy a cup of tea.
BY-JOVE! I think I got it! The trick to The Tea Nation Teas is to NOT over steep! Deeeeer…
Anyhow…this one is somewhat artificial smelling when it comes to the Blueberries but for a bagged tea it’s not bad! The Green tea is more prominent and the blueberry flavor accompanies it! The Green Tea leaves a little bit of a grassy aftertaste but not too intense.
Overall…this is a nice average flavored green in a bag!
