Tea: Part Q appendix 12

So, I realized, after posting the last entry that I had already had Tea part 2, or some variation of that.  Sorry for the confusion.  Refund checks are in the mail.

This is the last tea entry, unless something VERY interesting comes up.

Pomegranate Tea.

I have tried green tea with pomegranate flavor before.  I didn't care for it.  There was just something about it.  The fruity underflavoring reminded me of the taste of bubble gum.  You know, that flavor that "bubble gum" flavored bubble gum has that really isn't anything other than bubble gum.

I like pomegranates and pomegranate juice.  I never noticed any similarity between the tart flavor and the intensely un-tart flavor of bubble gum. 

Yet, in this "pomegranate" tea blend, the flavor is there again.  Maybe it is a case of the "flavor" not tasting like the real thing, like watermelon candy (or grape or banana or ... anything, really.)

Either way, I don't particularly care for this tea, but it doesn't suck, so I will drink it until it is gone.

I definitely like citrus blends better.

Christmas at Grandma's 1978.  My siblings and cousins and I.  I have my eyes closed.  I can tell this is 1978 because of how little my brother is.  Matching dresses for the girls!  Gotta love it!
