Wow!  The first sip was overpoweringly CHERRY!  First off, I wasn’t sure I was going to like this tea that I has been so looking forward to trying…and then I had another sip.  It was delightful.  The cherry flavor was still there as well as a bit of the pomegranate, but it was much less punchy.

Decidedly, this is a fun tea!  The taste is light and bright at that same time.  It would be perfect for a tea party, served either hot or iced.  Today I am having it hot, but image it would make a refreshing iced tea too.

If you enjoy fruit teas, go ahead and try this one!  The cherry and pomegranate flavors are not subtle, nor are they too strong.  For me there is a nice balance.

I love this unique tea! It is like an herbal fruit ‘tea’ (or herbal infusion as some would say since there are not any tea leaves in herbal ‘teas’) and a green tea in one. Although, I had to admit, since it is called a green tea you are a bit surprised to see the deep red color of your first cup. I think I checked the packaging to make sure that there was green tea in  it while it was brewing. However, don’t let the bright red brew fool you. While you do taste very strong cherry and pomegranate the green is there as well. It’s the best of both worlds. All of the sweetness and flavor of a fruit tea with a little bit of caffeine from the green!
