Thumbs up!"Over all this cup is enjoyable, but I preferred it much better as it cooled. The pomegranate is easier to taste, the cup isn’t as bitter, and the taste of raspberry and rosehips are present but not overpowering. These three flavors blend together with a vegetal green tea to create a tangy sweet cup. "

persimmongreenpomegranateIf you’ve never eaten a pomegranate before, I suggest you try it. For a while pomegranate was this unknown fruit I knew to be too expensive but when I finally broke down and gave one a try I was pleasantly surprised. What I found to be inside was a network of nook and crannies and perfectly dug out spaces where the seeds fit, it quickly reminded me of a beehive, though not sweet like honey.

The Persimmon Tree offers a green pomegranate with organic green loose-leaf tea, organic raspberries, organic rose hips and essence of pomegranate. The scent is a very strong burst of fruit to your nose. I used 2 teaspoons full of leaves and brewed at 200 F for 2 minutes. The leaves surprisingly expanded significantly in my pot, and there appears to be more than one type of green tea, though I may be mistaken. The scent of the infusion is still fruity but not as strong and is more evenly balanced by the green tea’s vegetal earthy scent. This cup has a thinner body and feels like it is lacking something to me, when brewed hot the rose hips tend to dominate and bring along a tart flavor while the green tea quickly turned bitter. It was difficult to find the other flavors but this all was most likely due to the brewing temperature being too high.

On to the next, changed the brewing temperature down to about 180 F, and reduced the brewing temperature to 1.5 minutes. This time the green tea was not as bitter and the flavor was able to be extracted better. Over all this cup is enjoyable, but I preferred it much better as it cooled. The pomegranate is easier to taste, the cup isn’t as bitter, and the taste of raspberry and rosehips are present but not overpowering. These three flavors blend together with a vegetal green tea to create a tangy sweet cup. Personally I would much rather enjoy this tea cold-brewed and served over ice. I tend to enjoy fruit teas iced over hot.
