I love pomegranate, but it’s not always easy to find a well-crafted pomegranate tea. I’ve found a few that I’ve really enjoyed, but, I’ve also found several that have been very disappointing. This White Pomegranate Tea from Red Leaf Tea is one that I’m really enjoying!
The delicate character of the white tea leaves is a perfect match for the tangy flavor of the pomegranate fruit. The softer flavor of the white tea allows the flavor of the fruit to really shine through, while the bright flavor of the pomegranate does not obscure the pale earthiness of the white tea.
When I measured out this tea, I noticed how fluffy the leaves looked, each pale, silvery colored leaf was covered in the tiny, soft fuzz. The flavor of the white tea is a soft flavor, lightly vegetative notes that are more “hay-like” than grassy. The taste is earthy and pleasant, and I like how these notes meld with the pomegranate.
The pomegranate tastes a little bit sweet and a little bit tart … just like the fruit itself. I like the juiciness of the tea – and it has a very refreshing quality to it as well. I enjoy this one served hot or cold … but my preference is iced! It makes an awesome, thirst-quenching iced tea!
