In the dry leaf I can see lots of lavender and other petals, but all I smell is the pomegranate. But once steeped, the fragrance of the lavender comes out in full force. It beautifully compliments the smell of the fruit and green tea.
The taste of this is very pleasant and balanced. The green tea isn’t really distinctive, but there’s some vegetal notes that I lends to the blend, and the lavender and pomegranate are in harmony – a bit tart, floral and fruity.
On the finish the fruit fades out first, the lavender lingers a bit longer and then departs and eventually there’s just the vegetal umami notes of the green tea with a hint of the cooling sensation from the lavender.
It’s been ages since I’ve had this, and it’s been sitting in my cupboard for far too long, but it’s still really good.
