|"A bit like drinking a cup of liquid Jolly Rancher."|
It tastes bright and fruity. Unfortunately, it's has a bit of a medicinal quality, but that is somewhat counteracted by the vegetal matcha. I'd say the added flavour is too strong to be balanced, but I guess the upside of that is that this tea is distinctly fruity. In fact, with the candy-sweet smell and strong fruit flavour, I'd say this is a bit like drinking a cup of liquid Jolly Rancher, albeit somewhat healthier than that would be. Though it gives me a similar urge to brush my teeth.
Red Leaf Tea's website really pushes the health claims of both matcha and pomegranate, none of which I particularly care about. However, if you feel the need to "keep your PSA levels stable," and if you believe this will do it, then it's not a bad way to go.
Compared to the old version, I couldn't say I like this one more. It's certainly different, fruitier and sweeter than the old recipe. I wouldn't say I like it less, but I don't like it more, and I wouldn't go out of my way to get this again.
