The teabag smells very sweet and fruity. I can smell vanilla and rooibos as it steeps. By about three minutes it is a dark amber colour. I buy my teas from Murchie’s in paper sachets for convenience, but you can’t taste paper or packaging at all. The pomegranate flavour is very nice. Sweet, but no hint of acidic or tangy notes. Overall this tea is super smooth and well rounded. I very much enjoy the creamy vanilla. II didn’t add milk or honey but it tastes like it is a latte.
The second steep is just as flavourful, which isn’t surprising for a Murchie’s blend or for rooibos drinks. I’ve tried re-steeping this tea 4 times over about an hour without any loss of flavour.
