Light, fruity, sweet and not overpowering. A slight astringency. Tastes like spring time. This is a good one.

Give in to it
Ah, the pomegranate. In Greek mythology, Hades, god of the underworld, used pomegranate seeds to seduce Persephone, goddess of fertility. In Biblical circles, many think that Eve was actually tempted by a pomegranate, not an apple. What a fruit. We’ve used it to create a green tea that’s just as powerful. Sweetly tart, and seductive on every level. (MK Kosher)
Ingredients: Organic: green tea, black tea, green rooibos, rosehips, pomegranate arils. With natural flavouring*.

Grabbed an ounce of this at Davids yesterday (I’ve been wanting to stock up on green teas, and this one looked appealing). I didn’t get home until late, but I brewed a quick cup up hot, drank half of it, then iced the other half this morning. I love the flavors of pomegranate and green tea mixed together – the combo works really well! One of my new favorites, but it wasn’t outstanding iced and I’m looking for iced teas for the summer.
This tea is way too sweet for me. An impulse buy at DavidsTea – I had gone there to replenish my stash of Rose Congou Green. I was disappointed to learn that it was discontinued. The woman who waited on me suggested this Green Seduction. I took a sniff of the tin, which smelled nice, and bought some. I will try steeping for way less time.
I got a mini-tin of this from a special event I attended, but I won’t bother adding it to my cupboard because it’s almost gone.
To me, this tea just tastes like a mix of green and black tea with some artificial flavouring in it. I don’t taste pomegranate no matter how much I try to convince myself it’s in there. To be honest, I don’t even taste rosehips despite the fact that I can actually SEE them in the tea mix. They do give a bit of a tartness to the tea, but that’s about it. Not much flavour.
I find this tea really finicky to actually steep. Sometimes I swear I follow the steeping instructions just to be overwhelmed with bitter. So then the next cup I compensate by not steeping as long, and I end up getting a cup of warm water that tastes faintly of tea. It’s a strange one.
I definitely wouldn’t buy this tea. It’s not terrible, but it’s certainly not one of my favourites. And with so many others that I do really like, I just won’t bother.
