This afternoon I gave into temptation and tried one of the teas that I got from the Fancy Food Show. I decided to open the variety pack from The Boston Tea Company. I was pleasantly surprised to find about ten different types of tea in the box.
Since it was extremely warm out today I decided to go with the Pomegranate Green Tea as my choice. I thought it would taste the best over ice. I made it in my ice tea maker using the single serving setting. It was really easy to make.
I found the tea very bold which I expected since it was considered a green tea. It was a bit on the bitter side and tasted tremendously strong. I did add a sugar cube to help sweeten it. I was expecting it to have more of a pomegranate flavor. The pomegranate taste was practically nonexistent. It tasted like an average cup of green tea.
I would recommend this tea for the green tea lover. Anyone who enjoys a cup of strong tea as a substitute to coffee will love it. The pack comes with 24 bags and retails for about 4.99. I am looking forward to brewing the other flavors in the box. I would give this tea a 6 out of 10. -Jules
