I’m surprised I haven’t reviewed this tea yet, because I’ve had it at least three times. Drinking it now, though, it’s clear that I must have been holding off because I wanted to experiment and see if I could brew it any better. There’s a sort of reddish color to it but no pomegranate flavor to be found (well, maybe a floral-fruity sort of…something…in the aftertaste), and the base is forgettable. I’ve tried this at nearly every temperature now, and while it’s decent I just can’t get it to shine. It’s not something I would reach for often if I had a large stock, but luckily it’s almost gone.
On another note, I was disappointed to hear that 52teas is going to be shifting their focus to their iced line and discontinuing their other products. I’m not sure whether it’s been announced before—I’ve been a little out of the loop lately—but I got an email about it yesterday and it put a damper on my night. At least I have a few things left from them to enjoy before they disappear.
