I agree with Erin Hurley on this one. It tastes more like apple than pomegranate. It’s sweet and tart from the hibiscus but at a tolerable level. Overall, it’s nothing exceedingly special. But it’s not bad either. It’s just

So here’s another ASHLEY tea :3
I know you think you taste like pomegranate, but you taste like apples. Why didn’t you just tell me? I would still drink you! I am still drinking you! But you so not taste like pomegranate. I looked at your ingredients. It says apple. You don’t taste like tea. Juice. Apple juice. With hibiscus. I won’t hate on you though. You’re good iced with splenda, and I won’t put you out.
As with most red-colored herb teas, I was bracing myself for a wickedly sour hibiscus rush (didn’t check ingredient list to see, just assumed)…and there wasn’t one! Flavor corresponds nicely and accurately with the nice fruity scent. Even a little bubble-gummy. I can see serving this one at a teddy bear tea party with … uh, the hypothetical granddaughter that may or may not materialize some decades down the road …
A review of Pomegranate Pizzazz Tea by Bigelow Tea
Company: Bigelow Tea
Tea Name: Pomegranate Pizzazz
Tea Type/Varietal: herb
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: cup/ tea bag
Water temperature: 200 Fahrenheit
Time: 3 minutes
I thought that I would give the pomegranate pizzazz a try seeing that it is similar to the Blackcurrant tea that I have enjoyed in past and all Bigelow teas I have tried have been wonderfully good.
I take one of the tea bags from tea cupboard upstairs and add this to my cup with the boiled water over it and leave it to steep for few minutes.
The tea darkens to a lovely rosy red in color; a darken crimson and smells wonderfully of the pomegranate, making for a sweet, fruity aroma. When I sip of the tea, it is indeed pomegranate blend and very sweet…licorice like
Water temperature: 200 Fahrenheit
Time: 5 minutes
I steep the tea using the same bag for several minutes and the teas aroma is as before; a sweet liquor but more like wine with hints of blackberry and hibiscus as this gives it its tartness.
Overall, tea has a lovely fruity aroma, made up of pomegranate, hibiscus, blackberry leaves and apple. The tea’s color is a rose-red-pink and when tasting of the tea, it is sweet with a drying effect upon swallowing of the tea. And there is a tartness that adds to this dry feeling in the back of throat. I would say that this tea is on the acidic side as well and by this I mean high salt (salicylic / saline) content.
This tea is very similar to the Blackcurrant Tea from London Fruit and Herbs Company; only the color is that of grape.
I… wish this were fruitier. And I hate saying this about a fruit tea, but…. there’s just a hint of fruit, a little apple-y as others have pointed out, and a hint of tart, but not enough to leave a real lasting impression. And, I mean, it’s not bad? And would probably be the right kind of meek thing to have with something and be a nice on the side thing? But not really strong enough to stand out and be a decadent treat on its own, like my favourite fruit teas are.
Even though this is a very nice apple flavored tea I do kind of wish it tasted even a little bit like pomegranate. You know, since it’s called Pomegranate Pizzazz and all. That said, it is still a very decent herbal, and I always enjoy it. The apple flavor is sweet and fruity, and there’s no tart hibiscus flavor. And really… Apple Pizzazz just doesn’t have the same ring to it.
I got this in my recent swap with Hapatite
I made this as I wanted something sweet , and also wanted to not break my diet. Looking at the ingredients, this seemed to fit the bill – nice and fruity, with liquorice root which I hoped would make it sweet enough not to require sugar.
Dry, it smells… Nice. Not of too much, just nice. Vaguely fruity but I’m not sure I can pick out the pomegranate just yet. It could just be that it’s been a while since I had pomegranate. Steeping, the fruity smell is wonderful, and I can definitely pick out the pomegranate now.
The pomegranate is initially lost again in the sip – I taste fruits, maybe like a berry and apple drink, but no pomegranate. If I concentrate, I can tell the pomegranate is there, but it doesn’t shine through as the dominant flavour. I might actually make a comparison between the initial flavour and the filling of an apple and blackberry pie. It’s also a little tart, which is okay, but not as sweet as I’d expected with the liquorice root. The pomegranate taste does come through in the aftertaste, though, which is purely pomegranate.
I’m glad I got to try this, but my curiosity is now satisfied and I’m not sure I like it enough to buy more. If it was on offer at, say, a meeting, I wouldn’t turn it down.
