I really love the fragrance of the dry leaf. The combination of the rose petal, Japanese Sencha and pomegranate flavor create a very delicious scent that is fruity and sweet, with lovely floral tones in the background.
The brewed tea takes on a stronger “green tea” aroma, smelling a bit like freshly steamed vegetables. There are still hints of pomegranate in there too, as well as a whisper of rose.
As for the taste: it is wonderful! The green tea is the most prominent flavor, and that’s a good thing. It tastes light, sweet, and slightly creamy with hints of buttery notes. There is a vegetative tone to the overall cup, but I like that it does not overwhelm it.
The pomegranate is tart and sweet. It tastes true to the fruit, although it is a little different because of the strong green tea notes. But, I like this, because pomegranate flavoring in tea can sometimes be too tart, but, because of the sweetness from the green tea, I find that the tartness is softened. It is still a little bit tart, but it isn’t too tart. The rose is not a strong flavor, but hints of the rose can be detected.
A really wonderful pomegranate tea, and it’s delicious hot or iced.
