Thanks for the share VariaTEA – I’ve had the EG from Zest several times, but not this one. If I’m being honest, this is the one that I’ve always been more fascinated by anyway; I love pomegranate tea, and I feel like the pairing of that and mint could be quite nice.
It actually really was too; definitely a bright and sweet pomegranate note that at times felt a little red currant-ish too, followed by a light and cooling mint finish and just a little bit of grassyness. Light to medium bodied overall, and very well balanced. That initial brightness of flavour/fruit is just really interesting too, and the transition into the rest of the profile just feels so natural. Reminds me of several blends, such as Green Seduction (another pom green tea I like) or even Tiesta’s Mojito Turndown or DT’s Raspberry Mojito.
I dare say I like this better than any of the others I’ve mentioned, though.
