Taste Test: Pomegranate Tea Party

I came across a great sale at Von’s this week.  POMx Teas were on sale buy-one-get-one-free.  I figured this was a good opportunity for a taste test.

Oddly enough, Nicole and I had just been talking about the health benefits of pomegranate just a couple days before so coming across the sale was well timed.

To make things interesting, I covered up the four bottles I bought for a blind taste test.  Here’s how it went down:

#1 Pomegranate Wildberry White Tea (Light Tea)

Michael — Definitely a berry flavor but dry in my opinion. Could use a bit more sweetness.
Nicole — It’s OK. Was that a berry flavor?

#2 Pomegranate Hibiscus Green Tea (Light Tea)

Michael — Very light but in a good way. Very refreshing. Almost like a lemonade.
Nicole — Tastes like funk! Plus it has a skunky after taste.

#3 Pomegranate Peach Passion White Tea

Michael — Peach! Smells leafy but the peach flavor seems artificial. I enjoyed the leafy after taste though.
Nicole — This smells worse than #2. Is this Peach? Give me more of #1.

#4 Pomegranate Blackberry Tea

Michael — Full bodied and strong. Almost has a peppery undertone to it. Sweeter than the others but only slightly so. This one’s my favorite.
Nicole — Smells better than #2 and #3. I like this one the best.

Clearly our tastes varied throughout the test but we both agreed on the Blackberry Tea in the end.
