Full leaves of premium Ti Quan Yin are deliciously infused with tangy pomegranate to create this inspiring yet complex full-bodied blend that creates a sweetly fragrant, silky textured cup of tea. The pomegranate flavor of this tea is a prominent note. It's every so slightly tangy, and neither sweet nor bitter. Behind that bloom of pomegranate is the more subtle flavor of an elegant, high-quality oolong. Ti Quan Yin is the sort of leaf which stands up to multiple steeps, without losing that light flavor which is so characteristic of oolongs. The two combine to create a quiet tea, with a complex and stately flavor.
I am not a fan of oolong tea. I usually prefer something a bit more powerful flavor-wise. My doctor told me to start drinking it since it is really good for the digestive track, and I have to say, this pomegranate flavor is the only one I like. Its light enough to taste like the traditional earthy oolong tea, but has a big pomegranate punch that is just delicious. Five stars for this one!
It's always nice to hear from someone who might have tried a tea with the preconceived idea that they wouldn't like it and, viola, they were happily surprised to find that they liked it. Keep trying Amber! There is so much to like! And thank you for your review!
