drank Pom Power by DAVIDsTEA
1271 tasting notes

My pomegranate tree is exploding with lots of pomegranates, but still not ready yet! With that said, I kept thinking about this tea. Oddly, I didn’t review it yet, so here it is!

DRY: Sweet tart fruit snack smell. I gotta say this is up there on weird teas – it’s chunky, sticky and clumpy. I think I got scared when I bought this at DT and saw the sales gal scoop it. It’s got that appearance of hot rice crispy treats being spooned out of the cooking pot… but not stringy. I’m a little worried with the shelf life of this tea with it being sticky.
I tasted one of the pomegranate bits and it was tasty!

STEEPED: Pink colour – tart smell, like cranberry.

TASTE: Slight tartness comes out with a hit of fruity – a little pomegranate but could be mistaken for a light cranberry from the tartness. Sweetened with rock sugar, the fruityness is brighter and more pomegranate and less tart.

WHO’D LIKE THIS TEA: Fruity tea drinkers

COMMENTS: I’m happy that this tea has a good level of tart – it’s not overpowering and seems more natural to pomegranate. Overall, not bad but not blowing my mind – this might be good cold steeped though. I feel that I should kill off this tea before the stickyness mutates into something horrible.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

BTW, my Steepster cupboard is not even close to accurate and I track my teas on a spreadsheet. Last update 573 Teas – August 2015.
