Got a sample of this with my last DT order. Had it iced, with a tiny bit – like, 1/4 packet – of stevia. The overall sweetness was a great compliment to my berry oatmeal.
I normally prefer more autumnal flavors, but since yesterday’s snow has finally melted, I wanted something to remind me of warmer weather this morning. This smells tropical: fruity and sweet, and it makes me think of summer. If I concentrate, I can pick out the fragrance of pomegranate, but it smells more like “pomegranate flavoring” than fresh seeds. The dry blend looked really fruity, so I steeped it just a little longer than recommended since I knew it wasn’t likely to be bitter and I really wanted the flavor to pop. And it did. Tastes much like it smells: very tropical. Alone, it was sweet, but not overwhelmingly so, like many other mango teas tend to get. I had about 1/3 of the glass unsweetened, but then I added a bit of stevia to see what it would like taste like that way. I think it amped-up the flavor even more.
I don’t know that I could necessarily taste the individual mango and pom flavors, more of just a general tropical (I can’t stop saying that word) fruitiness. It makes a good warm weather tea, but since we’re supposed to get more snow on Sunday-Monday, I think it’ll be a while before I’m in that mindset again!
EDIT: I did a second infusion hot; not much flavor left to it this time around.
