drank Pumping Pomegranate by T2
1462 tasting notes

Advent Day 4
Hibiscus /shudder/.
These portions are TINY. It’s barely enough for one cup. I weighed it this morning and I think it was only 2 grams. Being hibiscus adverse, I decided to dump it into some cold water and come back to it later. I’m not getting pomegranate at all. To be fair it’s probably a really hard flavor to capture in something like tea. MAYBE it smells like pom a little, but it tastes like I melted a tube of cherry Chapstik in a cup of water and let it cool. And then added insult to injury by throwing in some hibiscus. This one is a hard no.

As someone who actually likes hibiscus, when I’m dealing with an herbal like this I need a whole lot more than 2g or it is always weaksauce. I feel like I specifically had that problem with some of the T2 fruit teas I tried in the past (Fruitalicious, was it?) where their sample was simply not enough for me to brew it the way I like those sorts of teas. It’s like I’d have to use a thimble of water. O_o

I used less water than I normally would to try to compensate, but it didn’t help me. :/

Looking up my old tea review on this, even I (as someone who isn’t hibi-averse) didn’t find anything resembling pomegranate in it.

Did you find chapstick? :D

Bio

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan, but have had a growing appreciation for plain. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! And no hibiscus. Hibiscus is the devil.
