Antioxidant Power: POM Wonderful’s Antioxidant Super Teas

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:

POM Springs

POM Springs Cocktail

2 oz. POM Pomegranate Peach Passion White Tea
1 oz. light rum
1 oz. dark rum
1 1/2 oz. cranberry juice cocktail
1 1/2 oz. fresh orange juice
Assemble all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake well. Strain into a goblet or tall glass over ice. Garnish with orange, lime and peach slices. Serve and enjoy!

Geisha Highball

POM Geisha Highball Cocktail

4 1/2 oz. POM Pomegranate Honey Green Tea
1 1/2 oz. dry sake
1/2 oz. citrus vodka
Garnish with 2 long slices of English cucumber, cut to look like chopsticks. Serve and enjoy!

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.

Drink This and That: New Beverages to Quench Your Thirst

We’ve been walking the city more and more as the weather gets warmer, it is one of our favorite things to do. Of course all this walking means we have to stay properly hydrated, keep our energy up, and do what we can to continue burning off these winter accumulated calories. While we can stay hydrated with the regular H2O, we prefer to keep ourselves refreshed with beverages that offer more than just simple replenishment. Today we share three brands, two are old favorites welcoming new flavors, and the other is a newly launched beverage we’ve become slightly addicted to. we’re happy to get you acquainted with the new flavors from POM Wonderful, and Cascade Ice, and introduce you to Positive Energy. Let begin with the new beverage brand first.

Positive Energy

We usually get our caffeine with one or three hot cups of tea, but you can’t really hydrate with tea when you’re averaging 4-5 miles a day, plus we prefer to feel more energized naturally. Fortunately we can, thanks to the pure fruit juices + caffeine found in Positive Energy. These revolutionary beverages contain 100% pure fruit juices and green coffee beans plucked directly from the trees. Available in six juices, Orange, Cranberry, Apple, Lemonade, Strawberry Lemonade, Peach Mango Lemonade, and Lemonade Tea, the non-GMO, gluten-free and kosher Positive Energy, boasts only 60 calories, the same amount of caffeine as a large cup of premium coffee, no added sugar, no preservatives, and no artificial flavors. You can enjoy them straight out of the bottle like we do, or mix them in a smoothie or cocktail for a burst of natural energy. Grab yourself a 2-Pk, 6-Pk, or 12-Pk on

POM Wonderful

These officially launched late last year but because they are so popular, We hadn’t had the pleasure of trying all of them, especially in one sitting so we were in heaven. As self-proclaimed tea lovers, and POM Wonderful addicts, we had no qualms about loving these. POM Wonderful’s range of new Antioxidant Super Teas combines the antioxidant power of their premium 100% Pomegranate Juice delicious gently brewed teas to bring out their natural flavors and body. These super teas, available in Pomegranate Lemonade Tea, Pomegranate Sweet Tea, Pomegranate Honey Green Tea, and Pomegranate Peach Passion White Tea are as delicious and addictive as you’d expect.

Cascade Ice

We mentioned that we wanted to stay hydrated with more than just plain old water and we mean it. Cascade Ice Flavored Sparkling Water is more than just water, this zero-calorie sparkling flavored waters come in 21 delicious and unique flavors, are free of sugar, calories, sodium, caffeine, and gluten, full of flavor, and have a delightful “fizz” combined with natural fruit juices. they recently held a public vote on Facebook where consumers selected the newest flavor to add to their current 21-flavor collection.
