I was just wondering on my way home from the mall today if this was named for the biblical story/theory that Eve was tempted by a pomegranate and not an apple and then I stopped to actually read the description of this tea and it’s directly referenced on the label/tea description… so there’s that.
This is one of the tea on the tea wall that I skipped over, simply put, just because of the green tea base. I’m not a fan of green tea, and so there are a lot of green teas I haven’t tried from DAVIDsTEA. It’s not overly complicated.
This one smells really good though! I was just commenting this morning that I dislike the stevia in DT’s Pom Diggety blend (and Pom Cider as well) and this one actually doesn’t have stevia in at all. So that’s an automatic plus, in my opinion. It just sweet really sweet and juicy though; pomegranate for sure but also just red fruits in general. It feels like the fruit is about to burst!
The taste is really smooth; I think I enjoy the base as much as I do because it’s not straight green tea – it’s cut with both black tea and rooibos. So, in addition to the vegetal/grassy taste of the green tea it has some of the body of the black tea backing it, and is a bit more grounded. If that makes sense. I don’t think the richness of the red fruits/pomegranate is as juicy and in your face flavour wise as it comes across in aroma, but the distinctness of those fruits IS there. I know this is pomegranate and I know that it has other red fruits/berry notes in the background for support. Strawberry, raspberry, maybe even red currant. Again, I can’t reiterate it enough – but the fact this doesn’t have stevia in it is SUPER apparent in how the natural sweetness of the fruit is conveyed.
Yeah; I don’t really have much criticism for this one apart from the fact the aroma is more intense than the actual flavour. It’s still not weak/light bodied though; and the notes are there and what I want from it. I wish we carried a candle infused with this one rather than some of the other scents/teas we carry in candle format ‘cause I’d probably rather smell it than drink it. But regardless call me seduced, I guess.
Friendly reminder that I’m not currently numerically rating teas because I’m seasonally employed by DAVIDsTEA and therefore an obvious conflict of interest exists.
