Iced Tea Pomegranate and Hibiscus Drink (Marks and spencer) By @Cinabar
I was in Marks and Spencer food hall with my mum, and I was after a drink to take out. I was browsing the shelf and my mum suggested an orange and passion fruit drink. As nice as it sounded I said I was after something a bit more unusual. A voice piped up and said the weirdest sounding drink is the Iced Tea Pomegranate and Hibiscus Drink. It was another shopper, I asked him if he had tried it, and he said he was thinking of buying it, and that he had read all the flavours of the other drinks and that this was the most interesting. Clearly a fan of interesting foodie items, and who can resist M and S for that.
This Iced Tea Pomegranate and Hibiscus Drink is a new drink, in the Spirit of Summer range. With the drink selection made I gave my bottle a sip. Mostly the flavour was of pomegranate and this gave it similarities to pure juice, it was fruity but not too sweet. It reminded me a little of red berries, and was very tasty. The tea came through as a slightly leafy bitter aftertaste, and the Hibiscus added some light floral tones. The drink was very pleasant and refreshing, and made a nice change to the usual flavours, perfect on a warm day. I hope the other shopper enjoyed his bottle as much as I did.
