What I didn't know when they offered to send me the POMx teas was how utterly delicious they would be. How delicious you ask? So delicious that we actually drank all four bottles before I even had a chance to photograph them! Really. They're just that good ... good enough that I went out and bought another round so I could show them to you here:
My little POMx care package contained one bottle each of the Pomegranate Hibiscus Light Green Tea, Pomegranate Wildberry Light White Tea, Pomegranate Blackberry Tea and Pomegranate Peach Passion White Tea ... each more delicious than the next! The husband made short work of the Peach tea, downing it in a matter of seconds. After sampling the Wildberry Light Tea (35 calories for the light varieties), I pronounced it scrumptious and asked him to mix me a drink. And so he did ...
The Wildberry POM-Tea-Ni:
- 2 shots of good quality gin
- 1 1/2 shot of POMx Wildberry Light White Tea
- 1/3 shot of white vermouth
- 3 drops orange bitters
- lemon peel
Certainly, any one of the POMx teas would work well in this drink and you may also choose to substitute some vodka for the gin in this recipe. I wouldn't ... but, hey, the world's your oyster! Do as you see fit.
Even without the booze, the POMx is magically delicious. I don't much care for fruit drinks, or soft drinks, but I do love this tea. It has become a regular feature in our fridge. Personally, I prefer the Light varities, not so much for the reduced calories, although that's a bonus, its mostly because I don't enjoy sweet drinks. The Light teas manage to be just sweet enough without crossing the line for me; and the flavors are both interesting and addictive.
Thanks, POMx! You've made me a fan for sure.
