I’ve never had a champagne dream cocktail either, Anne! But orange and pomegranate together sounds fantastic. The dry leaf smells juicy and red. Mostly red fruits with a touch of orange. I’m not sure if it’s the age of it (I’ve had it sealed since getting it), but once steeped, a lot of the fruitiness disappears and you’re left with a slightly hay-like white base. There is a bit of pomegranate but it’s so faint.
Not really sure what to think of it. It may be better iced, but I’ve been so lazy with preparing tea cold. Have I mentioned that I accidentally broke my DAVIDsTEA glass pitcher a few months ago? That really hurt. Really hurt. Especially because they don’t seem to make them anymore, only the plastic ones, and I’m not crazy over the idea of cold steeping in plastic. I’ve yet to find a replacement. Sigh. It’s a huge reason why I’ve been neglecting my herbal fruity blends at the very least.
