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!

Definitely not my favourite. I left myself a cup’s worth so I can give it one last shot, but it wasn’t a winner for me. And I’m sure you noticed how sticky it was too… Egh.

Yeah, I opened the bag and was like, what is going on here. I’m starting to love fruit teas but this just tasted straight up like one dimensional juice instead of something fun. Was worth a try though.

I checked my previous review, and apparently I also couldn’t taste the white tea. Seems like such a waste to pay for a white tea and not taste it at all!
