Featured Reblend for December 2017!
I decided to reblend this one because I had several requests for it and it's one of the highest rated teas for 52Teas on Steepster. I wasn't able to find a review that I had written for this tea - so I suspect that it must be a tea that Frank crafted prior to my becoming a dedicated customer and subscriber. I don't remember trying it either.
However, it's a fairly simple recipe so I felt pretty confident that I could reblend it. And right off the bat, I took a different route with it - using a blend of organic Chun Mee and Gunpowder rather than Chinese Sencha.
Frank described this tea as:
Pomegranate flavored green tea with real freeze dried pomegranate arils and our naturally buttery-sweet Chinese sencha green tea.
I still went with freeze-dried pomegranate arils because - well, it was either that or air-dried pomegranate arils - which are incredibly sticky and messy. Freeze-dried pomegranate arils are also sticky, but not nearly as sticky as the air-dried stuff.
I love it! The green tea blend has a sweet flavor that's somewhat grassy, but not overly so. It melds nicely with the fruity notes of the pomegranate that's tart but also pleasantly sweet. It has an aftertaste that reminds me of the aftertaste I'd experience after eating a fresh pomegranate aril - so I think I achieved what I set out to achieve!
Tasty stuff - this!
