I suspect this is another tea of the month club addition. It’s still available at Teavana as of this writing.
I’m not sure I would recognize this as a rooibos blend if I drank it blindfolded. I can definitely see the rooibos, but what I taste is lemon and some apple. The lemon leans toward a lemon myrtle-y version even though the flavor comes from lemongrass; it’s got a touch of bitterness to it, but on the other side is a lingering sweetness. I don’t taste pomegranate, and I don’t taste the cardamom, but if I stretch my senses really far I might be able to get some pomegranate in the aroma. It’s mostly lemon and apple as well, though, and the liquor looks like apple juice.
Since I mostly taste lemon, I find myself comparing this to other Teavana lemons. I like the Lemon Youkou better than this, and I like the Strawberry Lemonade best of all. If I could taste more pomegranate this might be more interesting. Next time I’ll try overleafing more (I used heaping teaspoons) and see if it comes out.
ETA: Though I don’t taste the cardamom, I’m noticing a little spicy kick in the aftertaste that I expect is contributed by it. P. S. No. 2 liked it, and the BF says it is on his top ten list. (Though he admits he hasn’t kept track of what else is on his top ten list. ;-))
