I had this tea at a Barnes & Noble. I was looking to buy the opera “Atys” on Blu-Ray. Sadly, it was more expensive than I thought, so I’ll have to resort to Amazon.
Though in Sachets, the leaves were entirely loose. I couldn’t see any pomegranate, but definitely smelled it. I assume the dried leaves were scented by the pomegranate, rather than thrown in with pomegranate chunks. It smelled nice.
The color of the brew was a pale yellow. It smelled like a flavored candy, like PEZ to me. I was hesitant at first, with the smell. However, the tea proved to be much better than the scent itself. I did notice that much of the floral attributes of Ti Guan Yin (Ti Kuan Yin) had been lost to the pomegranate flavoring. That is what mostly threw me off. Aside from that, this tea wasn’t too bad. It isn’t my favorite from Harney & Sons, though.
I think I’ll try it iced next time. It should be more refreshing as an iced tea on a summer’s day.
