This tea was just ok for me.

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)

I got this when I was downtown today as it was the tea of the day and, as I’m in Quebec and don’t speak much French, that seemed to be the easiest thing. Overall this is just kind of meh. No specific flavours really jumped out at me; I’ll just describe it as “green”. It’s definitely fruity, I was thinking maybe melon, but it would seem that’s just my imagination. Hint of floral notes as well. Certainly not bad, but nothing special.
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.
