From Stash Tea Company

This hibiscus and rooibos blend is festive in both taste and color. The natural cranberry and pomegranate flavors give this tea a very cheery taste. Its sweet and tart flavor notes are very appealing and for something extra special, add a touch of sugar to bring out the best in this tea.

Ingredients: hibiscus, rooibos, cranberry flavor, and pomegranate flavor

This tea tastes like… Olives.

Ewwwwww. I hate olives to begin with- why is my fruity tea tasting like them? I blame the rooibos. And the hibiscus.

Once the olive taste wears off, I’m left with a slightly cranberry-like aftertaste. No pomegranate to speak of. It’s like a shadow of what this tea might have tasted like if it were blended better.

Ughhh. This is exactly why I despise both rooibos and fruity herbals.

First of all, I am not a huge fan of rooibos tea, and with the flavor combination of pomegranate and cranberry, I should have know that this tea was going to be too tart (and icky) for my liking. I’m not sure what I was thinking when I bought this one. Thankfully, my brother seems to be enjoying the remainder of the box, but even he adds a touch of honey to “edit” the taste.

First off, I have no idea how long I steeped this, but the mug was still pretty hot when I remembered I was drinking this tea so it can’t have been for too too long. At least it’s an herbal, right? I also added more than a bit of sugar to both counteract the dreaded hibiscus and also to hopefully mask the rooibos taste that I really don’t like very much except for very specific instances. I’m currently hugging the tea mug because it feels very nice and warm on my hands and the building is cooler than normal here at work. I broke my purse today, the handle ripped out, so I’m hoping this tea is better than I’m anticipating, to make up for my cruddy day.

Drinking this, it isn’t horrible. There’s still a yucky rooibos undertone that I don’t like at all, but the fruit flavours are pretty strong with the sugar added and tart and fruity like they are supposed to be. I can definitely taste the cranberry and there’s some pomegranate in there too. I don’t think I’d like this tea at all without the sweetener.

This one has a certain zing of tartness, but overall I liked it. I wouldn’t go to it first but when I want something with that tart flavor, I’d take it.

Per directions, steeped 2 bags for 3 minutes, poured over ice. Tasted watery and bitter – it made me grimace when I drank it. Mixed with the iced tea with Raspberry Hibiscus, Melon, Raspberry Pomegranate. Mixture made it more drinkable but still not something I would choose to drink – still forcing it down to not waste it. Tasted 08. 2018.

Teabox… Thursday? Extra teabox tea this week, because I’m feeling in a hibi mood tonight and saw this single teabag I snagged from the Discovery Teabox. Thank you Skysamurai for organizing and all participants of the box!

So this is a hibi/rooibos blend with pomegranate and cranberry flavoring. Stash is one of those bagged tea companies that is pretty hit-or-miss for me… I love their hibiscus tea Apple Cinnamon Chamomile, but hated their Pomegranate Raspberry Green Tea, so I imagine this could go either way for me. Perhaps the hibi will save it for me, or perhaps their pomegranate flavoring will be entirely unappealing to me again… or, if the scent I’m getting through the bag is anything to judge by, it could be the rooibos that will be the problem. I normally have no issues with medicinal notes from red rooibos, but this tea actually smells like cough syrup through the paper bag. Hmm.

Well, let’s steep and see…

The tea does have a strong tart, fruity aroma, but it does still smell a bit medicinal just from the aroma to me. The flavor is… yaaaa, I am definitely picking out that cough syrup note. It’s not horrible, but it is there. I honestly don’t get it from rooibos often, but I’m getting it from this one. Maybe there is something about the tart, fruity cranberry flavor paired with the rooibos that is bringing out that particular medicinal flavor note and really making it have those “black cherry cough syrup” vibes. If it didn’t have that rooibos base, this might have actually worked for me, because I think the hibi and cranberry flavor pair okay, and I’m really not making out the pomegranate flavor much.

I’ll finish the cup, and try to convince myself it’ll keep me from getting a sore throat/cough. But it is another miss for Stash for me, unfortunately.

I made this iced. It’s an odd one. I do not like pomegranate. I don’t like eating it and I don’t like anything pomegranate flavoured. The combination of cranberry/pomegranate/rooibos makes this taste slightly “off”. The cranberry flavour saves it from being completely awful. I will get through the box but won’t purchase again.

This steep very fast, so be warned! I left my tea bag in under a minute and it steeped a very bright pink magenta colour (like the packaging/) I can taste some tartness and something sweet and fruity. I find the pomegranate is almost tropical and creamy, I taste a bit of vanilla, which I did not expect. I think this makes a decent iced drink as long as you don’t steep it too long. It also goes well in ginger ale if you are looking for a sweeter and flavourful soda.

Most of Stash’s Hibiscus teas taste really weird if brewed for more than a short time. I much prefer Celestial Seasonings or Adagio for Hibiscus teas.


I concur with rosebudmelissa. I have had about 8 fruit herbals from stash and the only one I liked was Raspberry Hibiscus(it actually tasted like raspberries!). Really like Celestial Seasonings True Blueberry and Black cherry for iced teas.


I actually find Celestial Seasonings is similar to Stash and get very tart quickly. I mostly avoid hibiscus teas when I can, but I bought a whole bunch of individual herbal tea bags so I could make iced teas.


Ah well, to each their own!

I got a massage this morning which was amazing and saw that the Massage Envy location I was at had these teabags. Cranberry Pomegranate is one of my favorite flavor combinations in other companies so I decided to pick one up and take it home to review it.

First, upon opening the packet it smells hopeful. However, it does not smell like pomegranate or cranberry at all. Instead it smells of blueberries. It’s almost like Teavanas blueberry pineapple in smell… I wonder if it will taste as such? This is ironic because it is a mix of rooibos, hibiscus, and cranberry and pomegranate flavorings so why would it be giving off that aroma? I do not know.

After steeping it I was very disappointed. It wasn’t the worst thing to ever grace the planet but it was not close to great either. I was a cup of blaaaaaaaaaaaaah and didn’t really taste of anything remote to cranberry/pomegranate.

Oh well, I have more teas to love.

Note to self: Cranberry does not mix well with rooibos. This is as unappealing as almost all of Stash’s fruit flavored herbals, even though it doesn’t have licorice. That is almost impressive to me.
