This is one of my all time favorite white teas from Davids Tea. I love it both as an iced tea and hot, its perfectly fruity and just enough sweetness.

#tiffanys2021sipdown Tea #76 overall / Tea #43 for February
Thursday 2/25 — I like this tea… back when it first came out as a New Years/Wellness tea everyone was all over it. Glad it became a permanent fixture. This was from an open silver tin of this tea which means I bought it at work (since this was back when I worked as a casual tea guide at one of my local shops). I can’t say that I like it as a much as back then, but I have plenty more silver 2 oz bags of this in one of my basement bins and a bunch of sachet boxes from when those were on SAS back in the day so plenty more to go through! Definitely a fruity/berry tea, no taste of white tea base for me.

This is a very fruity tea, being a white tea I was expecting a lighter flavor.
After my first few sips my first thought was that I would rather have it iced.
Then I started to really taste the pomegranate and the complexities of tea and I enjoyed the rest of the cup hot and with the decision I would probably have it hot the next time I brew myself a cup.
The pomegranate is very strong, so if you are looking for a light white tea with a pomegranate flavor this is not it.
I can see myself enjoying more of this as we transition from summer to fall and even deep into the fall/winter seasons.
Pretty yummy fruit tea, but… why even call it a white tea? There is virtually none. And there is no way it’s going to be present amongst all the strong fruit flavours. It just feels like a scam, really – charge white tea prices for a tea that is mostly very heavy fruit pieces. So, although it tastes ok, this is massively overpriced for what it is.
So, I’ve had this twice now and I’m still not sure that I understand the excitement that I’ve seen from fellow staff members!?
I didn’t dislike the flavor profile, but I found it rather tart leaning and while I did taste the pomegranate I also found it to be really hibiscus heavy. In my opinion, it’s not as well defined and juicy of a pomegranate tea as I’ve had from DT in the past. Like, I think I prefer Pom Diggity or Pom Cider quite a bit more!? It’s just a little one dimensional for me; and I was very sad it lacked that pomegranate sweetness that I was hoping for. Tart is fine; just not what I was expecting!? And, because it’s more of a tart hibiscus/apple/pomegranate type of thing I don’t think it stands out as much as it could have!?
Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
