POMx Iced Tea

A few months ago, the kind folks over at POM Wonderful sent me samples of their new line of POMx Antioxidant Super Tea.  Here’s what they say about the product: “POMx Tea is a refreshing hand-picked, whole leaf tea, made with POMx.  Extracted from California-grown Wonderful-variety pomegranates, POMx has more antioxidant potency than red wine, green tea, grape and açai extracts.  In fact, 15 published scientific studies on POMx have documented its antioxidant superiority as well as its promising health benefits. Remember: Only one tea contains POMx.”

Here’s breakdown of the teas, in order of my preference.

POMx Light Pomegranate Hibiscus Green Tea

POMx Light Hibiscus Pomegranate Tea, Nutrition

We drank this in the car on the way to Woodstock.

Ari’s review: Spiffily designed package.  I wouldn’t purchase this product, only because I’m usually a water drinker. I might pick it up if I saw it in a deli, or if I had one of Katie’s coupons.  It tasted like a Pomegranate gatorade/iced tea mixture, with maybe a hint of oak.

My review: I wouldn’t have thought this was “light” tea if I hadn’t read the package.  It’s sweet but not overpoweringly so, and very thirst-quenching.  The flavor was very interesting and slightly tropical.  I felt festive drinking it!

POMx Pomegranate Lychee Green Tea

POMx Lychee Nutrition

My review: Lychees are one of my favorite fruits, and I can clearly identify it in this drink.  It’s almost a little tangy, and sweet but not syrupy.   I drank this when I was sick with a stomach bug; I usually drink ginger ale when I’m under the weather, but I didn’t want to pump my body with chemicals.

POMx Pomegranate Peach Passion White Tea

My review: This tastes a bit like guava.  It’s tropical and sweet, much better than some other popular bottled peach drinks I’ve encountered.  It has a deep “perfume-y” flavor, and smells delicious.

POMx Light Pomegranate Wildberry White Tea

POMx Wildberry Iced Tea

POMx Wildberry Nutrition

My review: This has a subtle berry flavor, plus something not quite identifiable.  I drank this after a long run and felt good about using it to refuel; it’s chock full of antioxidants and doesn’t have too many calories per serving.  It was a little too sweet for me; I’m not a big fan of sugary drinks, natural or not.  It had a slightly bitter aftertaste.

Bottom line: Would I buy these? Maybe.  I don’t love drinking my calories, but I enjoyed these teas in small doses.  I imagine they’re on the pricey side so I’d probably save them for a special occasion.

POMx Iced Teas are slated to hit stores soon, so keep on the lookout! Thanks, POM, for giving me the opportunity to try these out!
