drank Pom Tango by DAVIDsTEA
79 tasting notes

Bought 100g of this immediately after a in store sample, but reading the ingredients I knew I was going to get it before I even walked into the store. Gotta say the first thing I noticed about this blend, nothing seems to float up in my infuser?!

I really do enjoy fruity teas, this one is a home run for me, it really reminds me of Paradise Found; however with improvements. Paradise Found is great and I have it in my stash, but I find it is a bit heavy on the hibiscus making it slightly tart, Pom Tango corrects that and replaces the tart with sweet.

Dry this blend has a nice aroma of Mango and Pomegranate and even the aroma smells sweet. There isn’t a whole bunch of color to make this an interesting tea to look at in the tin; however it does have big chunks of mango that let you know this tea means business. I should mention that with tea’s like this with big chunks of fruits and stuff I try to measure out a nice scoop of tea with out big pieces simply so I know I am getting a good helping of tea leaves in the mix.

Steeped this blend has a mango heavy aroma with a pomegranate undertone that is subtle yet present. The taste is a soft mango and pomegranate taste and is really packed full of flavor, this is actually one of the few teas I do not put any sugar in, simply because it is sweet enough and I think sugar would push it over the edge too much. Certainly one that has to be tried iced as well, something tells me it will be better iced.

Tea, Earl Grey, Hot!

I will attempt to taste and comment on each and every blend offered from DAVIDsTEA and of course anything else that comes across my path.

I only drink tea brewed from loose leaf tea, and tend to sweeten my teas with a teaspoon of raw cane sugar per 8oz of tea and consider a cup either 12oz or 16oz depending on what mug I want to use.

I generally do not put milk in my tea’s; however sometimes I may make a ‘London Fog’ style drink or add milk to herbal infusions to add a bit more creaminess to it.

And I generally enjoy drink a nice hot tea while relaxing listening to some Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd.

I am quite liberal with my Tea ratings, I take the smiley face to heart for judging. If I really like it then it will score a high grade regardless of the brand or if I can keep it in my cupboard or not. But to break it down further a bit more check this out:

0-10 – Wouldn’t drink it if I was dying.
10-20 – Are you sure this didn’t come out of a bag?
20-50 – There is hope for this tea…somewhere but not here
50-60 – Drinkable, but not stockable
60-70 – Ok, were onto something here!
70-80 – Wow you gotta try this
80+ I freaking love it, where can I buy it?
