The dry teabag has a deep, rich fruited honey scent – almost a powdered honey smell. It smells really good! The tea smells exactly the same while steeping – maybe with a touch more fruit. The scent reminds me of a fruity dessert mead…mmmmm.

Without sweetener, the tea is lightly fruity and tastes somewhat honey like – I can make out the green tea, but it’s pretty faint.I would never know this had chamomile in it if I hadn’t read the bag. The hibiscus works well with the pomegranate flavor, and it isn’t too tart. Of course I had to add a little honey to it – it brought out the fruit flavor, but the honey flavor also became more pronounced. They could have just as easily called this “fruit mead flavored tea”!

I’m surprised the reviews on this are as ho-hum as they are – I probably would have rated this about 5 points lower without sweetener, but it’s quite good with a few drops of honey. I’m also a hibiscus fiend though, so keep that in mind when I tealog herbal teas… :)

I hate coffee and I love teas of all stripes (including herbal/tisanes)! My tea stash is getting out of control, so I’m trying to work through it – current count is 152+ flavors/types of tea/tisanes, bagged and loose. Woo!

My ratings:
0-10: Undrinkable. Probably threw the container away in a fit of rage.

10-25: Urgh. Gross. I need to give it away as it is taking up valuable tea cupboard space.

25-40: Uhh…why do I have this? May attempt foisting it onto my boyfriend.

40-55: Kinda funky, might drink it if I’m feeling under the weather and find it helpful, but that’s about it.

55-70: Ok, no great shakes, but I’ll drink it without complaint. I probably wouldn’t buy it again though.

70-85: If I come it across it and I’m in the mood, I’ll probably repurchase it.

85-100: Awesome! I will take extra time to find this again, and cry bitterly if it has been discontinued.
