This tea is sometimes mixed up with another of Boston Tea Company’s teabags. They offer a pomegranate tea with a black base and a pomegranate tea with a green base. This tea page and note is for the pomegranate tea with a green base. For the other offering, visit this page: http://steepster.com/teas/the-boston-tea-company/11739-pomegranate
I know this is a green tea and I shouldn’t have used boiling water. But in my defense, it’s a really old bagged tea and the water was already boiling. I didn’t feel like waiting for it to cool since I’ve only got a minute to enjoy it before I have to run off to prenatal yoga. So yeah…I used boiling water. :P
This is surprisingly good! The green base is light and slightly grassy. The pomegranate flavoring is even lighter but definitely present. It lends a sweet fruity undertone to the cup. The aftertaste is a little drying but nothing unmanageable. I like this one! It’s a pleasant cuppa.
