This was my very first cup of loose leaf tea, and I initially thought it was perfectly delicious. I drank my first few steeping without sugar, steeped at 180F @ 2.5min. I have since tried some other greens and oolongs, and have come back to retry this delicious smelling tea. I must agree with some other reviews here, the pomegranate is very subtle, but is enhanced with a bit of sugar. I still think this is a very good, delicate cup of tea that tastes great after a big meal. Don’t come looking for a heavy fruit taste, and you will not be disappointed with this aromatic tea!
