It’s been raining all last night and all day here. I’m supposed to do a group run this evening, but I don’t think it’s going to happen with all of the storms that keep moving through. I’ve taken the rainy day opportunity to lay in bed all day with a book and some tea – perfect kind of day!

This tea has pieces of raspberry leaves and pieces of dried raspberries in it. I don’t know if it’s because I know that, but it definitely tastes more like raspberries to me than pomegranate. I get a little of the tart pomegranate flavor in the finish, but other than that it’s either bitter black tea or a very subtle sweet raspberry. Even with milk and sweetener it’s still just ok, nothing amazing at all. I can still taste a little of the bitterness as well, and since I followed the steeping directions exactly this one just isn’t a winner for me. I don’t like finicky teas, unless they just taste amazing at the end, which I doubt this one would even if I played around with steep/temp. This one doesn’t classify as terrible, it’s just not that great. I actually really like Bigelow’s Black Pomegranate tea, which is funny because it’s in a teabag.

-Dry blend has small black tea leaves and twigs with pieces of green raspberry leaves and pieces of dried raspberries.
-Dry leaves smell of black tea and tart fruit. Tea liquor aroma is of strong black tea with just a hint of sweet fruit.
-Tea liquor is a clear very dark brown color.
-Strong and slightly bitter and malty flavor with a tart pomegranate finish. Subtle sweet raspberry aftertaste.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Fair tea. Tastes more like raspberry than pomegranate. Unfortunate strong bitter note.

There are quite a few Bigelow bagged blends that I really like too. They’re better than a lot of the other major companies.
And I’m trying to decide whether to run or not too…


Cold steep?

Josie Jade

Hope you got your run in, Fuzzy_Peachkin! It’s pouring here again today. I am supposed to run a 5k tomorrow, but I just don’t know!

Nxtdoor, I could try cold steeping it. Hmm. . .


hah Josie, i’m supposed to run a race tomorrow too. a trail race and it’s like, right along the river. meanwhile i keep getting emergency flood warning notices on my phone hah. even if they DON’T cancel the race, i’m pretty sure i won’t be in attendance.


lol! Josie- I didn’t run, but I did do planks and one-legged bridges. That’s my version of being a couch potato. I’m supposed to run a 5k tomorrow too, but the rain is supposed to stop by morning.

Shmiracles- Isn’t this kind of weather what makes trail races really fun? ;-) MUD!!

Josie Jade

Oh my goodness, this rain is messing up a lot of running plans for everyone it seems! Shmiracles, a trail run sounds like a disaster, especially with the flood warnings! Surely they will cancel it?! The race I’m supposed to do is through the zoo, which is pretty hilly and through a lot of woods, so I’m thinking it’s going to be a mess. I don’t want to mess up my pretty Mizunos, haha!

Good for you, Fuzzy_Peachkin! I need to go to the gym today since I didn’t run yesterday, but it’s been full downpouring all day and I’m really considering just not leaving my house at all. Good luck with the 5k, hope the weather (and ground!) clears up for you!

A pretty good iced tea with a bit of sweetener while it’s sweltering here. I haven’t tried it hot.
Also, I hate the slide scale rating. It doesn’t work on my tablet except generally. I can only poke at the line and rate whatever number it happens to land on.

Added 1t of sugar. The pomegranate flavor does not come through at all, leaving an overall pleasant black tea with fruit notes.

This was not as good as many of the other fruity black flavors Adagio offers. I liked it, but I prefer to cold steep black iced tea, and the sample baggie is usually perfect for one of my pitchers. This tea either isn’t as good or it requires a bit more tea to cold steep it well. Either way, I probably won’t repurchase, as so many of the others do well this way with less leaves used. Recommended for people who prefer more of a hint of fruity flavor, or who find most flavoring to be too strong.

You have to be really careful with this tea, I won’t front. If you’re a very exacting teasmith (unlike yours truly), you’ll probably get a perfectly decent tea from this; if you dare over-steep this, though, you’ll get a bitter and acidic tea that takes a lot of doctoring in order to find palatable. That kind of gamble isn’t my thing, which is probably why it’s a little more full than the rest of my rapidly-emptying tins in my cupboard.

Delicious! It has a light but very yummy, sort of tart pomegranate taste. As usual with Adagio, the ceylon taste is strong, but I still love this blend. I’ll probably get more next time I restock my tea collection.
