Pomegranates have long been part of the list of antioxidant-packed fruits, which is why drinking pomegranate juice is so healthy for you. Back in 2002, POM Wonderful decided to delve into the pomegranate juice market and released it’s fun-shaped plastic bottles of pomegranate juice.
But, for some people, the taste of pomegranate juice can be a little too intense. Strongly concentrated, it can be hard to drink proper amounts of the healthful drink. So how did POM Wonderful address this problem?
Enter: POM Tea.
Not only is tea all the rage these days, but it is a much lighter thirst quencher (when in iced form) that offers many an opportunity for healthy “mix-ins.” POM Wonderful took all different types of tea (white, red, green, black) and added their secret antioxidant packed ingredient, POMx, to come up with POM Tea.
“POMx is a highly-concentrated (and powerful) blend of polyphenol antioxidants made from the same California pomegranates we use to make our POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice,” POM Wonderful representatives said.
Matching the fun feel to the pomegranate juice bottles, each POM Tea comes in its own 16-oz. keepsake glass. Formerly, the dishwasher safe glasses had the POM Tea sticker on them, but now they have POM Tea etched in. Also, for those wanting larger quantities of the stuff, they now offer a 44-oz. glass bottle of POM Tea. You can find either serving portion at most grocery stores.
Another perk from this great product is that you can also make cocktails out of POM Tea! Check out their Web site for some great recipes.
Original POM Tea comes in four flavors:
Pomegranate Black Tea
Pomegranate Lychee Green Tea (my personal favorite!)
Pomegranate Peach Passion White Tea
Pomegranate Blackberry Black Tea
They just released “Light” versions of POM Tea that come in the following new flavors:
LIGHT Wildberry White Tea
LIGHT Orange Blossom Red Tea
LIGHT Hibiscus Green Tea
Other great sources of antioxidants include blueberries, acai berries, and dark chocolate. Anything that is rich in Vitamins C, or B, or that contains Selenium or Beta-Carotene is considered rich with antioxidants, according to Pat Kendall, Ph D.
