Serving Size: one rounded tablespoon (1.25) per 8 oz cup of water
Aubrey Says: I'm quite smitten with this beautifully subtle, dry and fruity blend!

I tried this tea alone and then mixed with the green tea and herbal mint tea. I liked it alone but when it's mixed it's extraordinary! I crave the smell and taste.

My opinion: the pomegranate flavoring is unpalatably cloying.
No matter what else I try, nothing beats the tasty Japanese sencha http://www.arborteas.com/organic-sencha-green-tea.html

If you like Makaibari Estate Tea, you'll probably like this tea for a nice change of pace. This is not a tea that I would drink all day, every day. However that is not saying that Organic Pomegranate isn't good. It is if your in the mood for something a little fruity. It's not overbearingly fruity and has a good aftertaste. The smell is one of my favorite things about this tea. Put it beside you and go for a ride that Air Wick or Febreze simply can't give!!! If your throat is sore or getting scratchy, this is the PERFECT Tea to drink. I added Lemon along with Honey, and it gave it a taste of my own!! And it was GOOD!!! And the best part is that it's Good for YOU!! So if your on the fence, just try it..

This tea has an earthy like taste mixed with a fruity flavor. It's great for when you want to change things up! Not a tea that I would drink all day, every day. But this is not saying that it isn't good. I like this tea after a meal as my desert! (This tea smells amazing sitting next to you)

This was the first tea I tried from Arbor Teas, and I just love it! The pomegranate flavor works very well with the light tea base. It's not too sweet, but it does seem to taste sweeter as it cools off, so I'm sure it would make a wonderful iced tea.

This is my go to tea whether I'm in the mood for something hot or cold! This has a very clean and crisp flavor with just a touch of sweetness. When I brew this for a cold tea, I put a little bit of honey in before I chill it. When I drink this tea hot sometimes I'll add a cinnamon stick. It's so good!

The dry mix smells very floral. I was a little worried about the rosehips since that flavor seems to overwhelm me in most drinks but not here. The tea is a light syrup, a little astringent. Floral, but not overwhelmingly so. The last and lingering taste is the pomegranate. The sample is only enough for a few cups so I think this will pop up on my shopping list soon.

I was able to get 3 fully steeped cups out of one serving. Very mild and smooth with a slightly fruity flavor. Aroma is very strong compared to the actual taste. Thoroughly enjoyed and will order again.

This tea is wonderful. I just received it in my order and enjoyed several infusions on this rainy afternoon.

I really like this tea. It has flavor but is not overpowering. It was a great tea to drink when I was feeling under the weather.
We at Arbor Teas firmly believe that tea should be brewed to suit your personal taste. With that being said, here are some recommendations to get you started, but please remember you can make adjustments based on your own personal taste.
There are three main considerations when brewing tea: quantity of tea, water temperature and steeping time.
Quantity of tea: one generous tablespoon (1.25) per 8 oz cup of water
Water temperature: use water that has been heated until bubbles begin to form on the bottom of the pot (180° F)
Steeping time: 2-3 minutes
Tip #1: Use fresh water whenever possible - water that has been sitting in your kettle overnight may impart a flat or stale taste to your tea. Be careful not to boil your water for too long. Over boiled water can sometimes impart an unwanted taste.
Tip #2: Keep in mind that brewing your tea for too long can extract undesirable bitterness from the leaves, so steeping time matters! For a stronger brew, don’t steep longer, just use more tea.

There are five significant components found in all tea from the plant camellia sinensis: essential oils, which are the source of tea’s delicious flavor and aroma; polyphenols, which are antioxidants that provide the tea’s brisk flavor and many of its health benefits; phytonutrients, which are small amounts of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids including L-theanine (a very rare molecule that has been found in only three sources including camellia sinensis!) ; enzymes; and methylxanthines, which are a family of alkaloids that include caffeine. Each of these components work differently in the human body and a full description is best left to a medical journal. However, recent research exploring the potential health attributes of tea is leading many scientists to agree that tea, may contribute positively to a healthy lifestyle.
