From Dethlefsen & Balk

Was the Tree of Life in the Garden Eden a pomegranate tree? Until this day, the pomegranate is considered a symbol of immortality and sensibility. Combined with the exotic dragonfruit and a touch of vanilla a paradisiacal taste experience is formed. The unique blend of strong Sencha, select Kukicha and finest Pai Mu Tan ensures that this truly is a premium quality. Let yourself be seduced.

Ingredients: Chinese Pai Mu Tan white tea (80%), Chinese Sencha, Kukicha, dragonfruit pieces (dragonfruit, sugar), lemon grass, flavoring, freeze-dried kiwi and raspberry pieces, pomegranate arils.

Steeping Instructions: 1 level tsp./6 oz serving, 176-194° F, 2-3 min.

Autumn Harvest! Pomegranates and lemongrass happen to both be on my autumn harvest list, though I’m sure neither are particularly thought of as “fall foods”. Tonight, I was definitely in the mood for a pommy tea, though (pomegranates, not pomeranians, I’m not a monster!) and I’ve had this sampler named “Exotic Pomegranate White/Green Tea” by Fusion Teas for ages. It was pretty easy to find the wholesale source of this tea — there are pretty much four major blend wholesalers I always check first, and I happened to check Dethlefsen & Balk second and got an exact ingredient match for their “Pomegranate Dragonfruit Green/White Tea.” Ding ding ding! Every other review for this will probably be listed under “Exotic Pomegranate” with Fusion Teas, but I prefer listing under the direct source, so there you have it.

The brewed tea is a buttery yellow color, has a light punchy fruit scent, and a very mellow floral note, as well. Oddly enough, I am getting a slight pineapple aroma, too. Which is only a good thing to my olfactory senses, as far as I’m concerned. Despite smelling quite punchy, it really is quite delicate, with a light, silky mouthfeel. I do taste pomegranate, but it is a gentle touch, not strong and overwhelming like so many fruit teas, with the base playing a much stronger role, and I’m surprised how many notes I’m getting here… a touch of a floral rose note, a soft butteriness (perhaps coming from the sencha added to the blend?), and a very sweet berry note that comes out toward the finish that reminds me of strawberry candy (it’s likely the kiwi or the dragonfruit, but since I don’t eat either, my palate is likely reading it as strawberry?)

I really like it! I think my next batch is going to be as a cold brew, but this was very gentle and relaxing before bed. I tend to only have herbals in the evening, but forget that white teas are so light on caffeine that it should be fine to have a cuppa of them in the evenings once in a while, too. I should add more whites into my evening drinking repetoire.
