Wes – February 25, 2015:
Meh – this is nothing special taste-wise. The bag packaging is cute (although kind of wasteful to have each bag individually wrapped in plastic), but it’s far from the best pomegranate tea I’ve had. It has the bitterness of pomegranate but not the deeper sweetness and is pretty bland overall.

I really enjoyed this tea — I don’t drink a ton of tea in general, but this is my favorite to get from Trader Joe’s. I like the blend of flavors and it’s a great price.

I never had white tea by itself, only in Joe’s brew with the pomegranate. But obviously, white tea is light in color and apparently light in flavor, too. Not sure there is such a thing as a strong cup of white tea.
The pomegranate in this brew is also light, lighter, lightest.
If you add white tea with juuust a pinch of pomegranate, the result is this, a very light tea. It makes a tea that’s light red. Did I mention “light?”
If you want something strong, you’ll be disappointed here.
But it’s a good flavor. I find it habit forming. I’m happy to have a cup or two per day. If you don’t have a sweet tooth, you won’t need sugar.
I can’t find anything written about whether the dried pomegranate in this tea has any of the alleged health benefits of fresh pomegranate. But hope springs eternal.
And I’m a little sensitive to caffeine, consistent with being a little nervous even before I have any caffeine. So white tea with less caffeine is just right for me.
Not that bad
