This tea is interesting. I do have a pomegranate white tea I got at a local shop, but it does not turn pomegranate juice red when I steep it like this does. Of course I also used all I was sent to make a cup so that it would be very flavored. But then it loses out on the white tea base.
Smells like pomegranate, tastes like…cranberry? I guess this is the doing of the hibiscus but it really just tastes like warm juice. Since it had already cooled a lot with about 3 oz left, I put some ice cubes in the mug and it tastes even more like cranberry juice iced.
But, if there’s anything I’ve learned from flavored tea it’s this: if at first it’s too flavored, steep it again.
Still very pink, but more like I’d expect for pomegranate flavored tea. Still smells like a pomegranate. But there’s still no white tea taste! It’s a lot less flavored this time around but it still doesn’t taste a thing like Silver Needles :(
Thanks for sending me some of this to try, Krystaleyn!
