Since I placed an order with Verdant, I need to make some quick progress in the sipdown department before my order arrives. I’ve decided that the rest of the day is teabag sipdown time. I’ve got a bunch of single teabags just floating around that have been in my stash forever. I probably should note that I think this tea bag is about 3 years old. Pretty sure it came as a free sample with the RoT catalogue.

I really liked the smell of this when it first started steeping, it was very sweet and heavy on the vanilla. I had hoped that would carry over to the brewed tea, but unfortunately the pomegranate is what really stood out. I think the two are a bit of an odd combination.

I got this from Kristin! Apparently I have somehow gotten off RoT’s mailing list, so I didn’t get this in the mail myself. Boo. Well, I feel lousy- I’ve been dragging for days. So a new tea is a lovely thing. I actually expected to dislike this immensely. I hate pomegranate teas most of the time… BUT I don’t dislike this one. (Notice that I tried it anyway, because I’ll try any tea once.)
It’s actually sweet with a berry undertone. My sister used to like these Cherry Creamsaver Lifesavers… and it’s like that, but less artificial tasting.

Drank this yesterday while sitting at my desk at work…I really like the smell it is sweetly pomegranate…the taste is fruity and delicate….once the liquid cooled I did taste some of the vanilla. I am not going to rate it as I was drinking mostly on autopilot while typing on my computer…

I received another sample of this in the mail. Steep is a dark red-brown. It is sweet-smelling. It tastes light and fruity. Not so tart, which is nice.

Okay that is so weird I was just looking through my old tasting notes and I saw this tea which I did not know I logged. I had this last weekend. And definitely enjoyed it! I was surprised that I had previously given it a 56 and said it was too sour because I was pleasantly surprised at how un-sour this tea was…

Just finished my first cup of this tea and it was yummy. I like that its a Rooibos tea because i love the flavour of rooibos! The pomegranate flavour isnt as strong as i thought it would be but it is very plesant and the vanilla finish is awesome! loooove this tea!

Sample that Mom got with her Republic of Tea catalog (she ordered tea for me a while back).

I really enjoy this one!! The vanilla is strong and creamy, and the pomegranate is fruity and tart. Very creamy and dessert-like. The red rooibos isn’t a strong flavor in this one, but it is still detectable. Definitely a tea I’d purchase!!

So I can’t quite get a grip on this tea.. there is a lot going on. It tastes tangy and slightly sweet. It has a kind of calm fruity presence. The funny thing is.. I don’t really taste either pomegranate or vanilla, so where are the flavors coming from? What I love is the tingling effect it brings to my tongue — I think that might be from the ‘fruit’ aspect of the tea. This might be a good tea to have iced as well. Overall, this tea is enjoyable!

I too received this as a sample and I thought it was ok, but that’s really all I can say which means I won’t be purchasing it but wouldn’t turn down a cup if offered.
