It’s the tea lover again, bringing you more tea favorites (there is a long list of tea to present to you later). Because we’ve been feeling under the weather, the temperature in NYC is still set to “dehydrate every living thing”, and we’re entering the Pomegranate season, we thought we’d share one of our favorite cold tea products, one we happily enjoy year’ round. We have loved POM Wonderful’s Antioxidant Super Teas since they were first launched in those keepsake glasses, some of which we still have today. These crisp and refreshing POM Wonderful’s teas are available in four delicious flavors: POM Lemonade Tea, POM Sweet Tea, POM Honey Green Tea and POM Peach Passion White Tea.
Don’t ask us to choose a favorite, because we can’t pick just one. we love the slight tartness of the POM Lemonade tea, the soothing (and great-for-sore-throats POM Honey Green Tea), the sweetness of the POM Peach Passion White Tea, and the distinctive flavor of the POM Sweet Tea. The best things about these teas, apart from their great taste and nutritional value, these super teas also make super cocktails, but first, let’s get to know these awesome gluten-free flavors which combines fruit juice and the antioxidant power of pomegranates and tea:
- POM Lemonade Tea – a fresh take on an all-time favorite combining POM Juice with perfectly sweetened lemonade and tea.
- POM Sweet Tea – a California twist on Southern tradition with sweet black tea and POM Juice.
- POM Honey Green Tea – offers the natural sweetness of honey and rose for simply tea-lightful flavors.
- POM Peach Passion White Tea – combines the tropical flavors of passion fruit with sweet ripe peach to deliver a crush-worthy taste.
Now check out two of our favorite and oh-so-delicious cocktails made with POM Wonderful’s Antioxidant Super Teas; selecting only two cocktails to highlight was quite difficult, but luckily you can see more POM Tea cocktails here:

For those of you who, like us, are feeling nostalgic about the old tea glasses, check out four of them from our POM Wonderful Glass collection below. Our go-to flavor back then was the POM Lychee Green Tea, we couldn’t get enough of it, but these four flavors more than make up for it. After accidentally breaking a few POM teag glasses….one incident was a full glass (damn our slippery fingers), e’re happy to sip from these unbreakable bottles.
Each bottle of POM Wonderful’s Antioxidant Super Teas retails for $1.99 and can be purchased in thousands of stores, from such pharmacy and convenience stores as Duane Reade, CVS, and Walgreens, to supermarkets like Pathmark, Food Emporium, Stop and Shop, etc. To find the closest retailers near you, check out the POM Wonderful Store Locator.
