My usual parameters for steeping. This tea is ok for what it is. It is juicy, a little sweet and tart. I don’t much care really for flavored teas because the intended flavor always seems to overpower the tea and in this case it did; this was a sample by-the-way. It was a little too tart because of the Cranberries but take into consideration my steeping methods; steeped to the “proper” specifications and it might be less tart, more tea taste. It was the better of the two I’ve had so far the other being Pomberry Green Tea [review of this tea coming soon]. The juiciness gets to be overpowering the longer it’s kept in the hot water. The liquor is a pretty, medium-colored pink.
This tea’s and the Pomberry’s characteristics remind me of The Republic of Tea, and if you’ve read my reviews of The Republic of Tea aren’t too favorable; the flavored teas between the two brands taste alike. Even though the ingredients are organic, the flavor(s) taste artificial and chemical to me. If you like juicy teas, then this one you may like.
I am anxious to try the other teas I actually ordered from this brand…my first try at them. Tasting notes coming in the near future.
