This Pom is the Bom!

As I proceeded with my weekly rituals of searching the flyers to make my grocery list, I came across an ad for a pomegranate drink by Pom Wonderful. I do like the Pom drinks, but because they are rather tangy, I cannot gulp them down like water. I need to sip them slowly like wine.

The advertisement was for a new line of Pom drinks that contained tea as an ingredient. Though the product is a bit pricey, I thought I’d give it a try. Four different tea types combined with pomegranate were up for grabs: Peach Passion White Tea, Lemonade Tea, Sweet Tea, and Honey Green Tea. 

A body to die for!

I went for the Honey Green Tea. The aroma was light and fresh with just a touch of fruit and floral notes. The colour was more that of watermelon juice. I wasn't sure what I was expecting in terms of the taste, but I needed to take several sips before determining if I liked it or not. It was not as tart as the regular Pom drink. This almost had a bubble gum taste to it. I could detect the green tea as well as the honey. The taste was unusual but not bad. Definitely something to enjoy during a backyard barbeque in the summer or used as an ingredient in a cocktail.

Pom touts itself as a healthy beverage, but I could care less if it’s true or not. It’s something I enjoy once in a while. Though I'm always a little suspicious of a product claiming to be healthy but uses an “extract” of one thing or “concentrate” of another thing then some “natural flavours” of some sort, and a little “organic” something. Really?

Just the facts!

As I said at the top, this isn't an everyday beverage for me. Just something I would consider when I want something a little different and purchase because it was on sale.
