POM has teas


If you are a fan of POM juice but found it high in calories, you MUST check out the new teas. POM wonderful sent me 4 different teas to try out, and they did not disappoint. Check out more about the company above from my juice review and at their newly designed website.

The flavors were:
Pom Blackberry Tea - tasted tropical and light
Pom Lychee Green Tea - reminded me of water ice (italian ice if you aren't familiar w/ Water ice)
Pom Wildberry White Tea - light - probably the least sweet of all of them in my view
Pom Hibiscus Green Tea - light - tropical like the blackberry

The light teas contain 70 calories per bottle and the regular teas 140 calories. The light teas are sweetened by erythritol (a natural sweetener, but not a word in my vocabulary) - I would rather drink the regular tea in moderation! Both contain fructose.

I drink green tea almost everyday, but drinking green tea cold with POM juice was amazing. I am always looking for something to drink other than water (and hot tea) so these were refreshing and delicious. I found most of the flavors to be similar in taste - very good. My favorite flavor was probably the Hibiscus or Blackberry. I would drink these when I needed something other than water to refresh! Bill thought the aftertaste was a little off. I thought they were tasty drinks!

On another note, POM invited me on a blogger tour in California that I had to regretfully decline - couldn't work it out during Bill's busy season, still nursing, and didn't think taking Nick cross country would be for the best :( So that was stinky and sad.

  10. So funny! I just watched last night an episode of Good Eats with Alton Brown on the Food Network and he showed how to make your own Pom juice! It is wicked easy! Take a look at it on the Food Nework site - I think I am going to give it a shot! And thanks for the review, not a big fan of things with fructose, but it sounds tasty and delicious - I will have to try it out! ;)
