Pomegranate White Tea...

Just wondering if anybody has tried this yet ?
I was at Trader Joe's earlier and saw that.
Was wondering if it's any good ?

I have tried it. The pomegranate white tea was refreshing during the summer time, however I could not drink it all in one sitting. It's a bit on the sweet side. I would usually drink it a third at a time. I did find it a nice alternative to an iced coffee or soda. I'm not a coffee drinker and liked the pomegranate white tea as a way to drink something cool that tasted good. I think I prefer the "Honest tea", iced tea to this.

when i was in Thailand last year, there was a commercial pomegranite green tea that was practically all I drank while I was over there, it was so good. I've tried to duplicate it myself here in the states, but haven't come close.

middie - I have tried all 3 - I think there is White Tea, Black Tea, and Peach? I hit a really low blood sugar at the grocery store one time and downed one of these - too care of it

Yes, they can be sweet - I think the black tea isn't quite as sweet though - maybe it's just stronger tasting. But the were extremely refreshing. I also went through my craving of straight pomegranate juice and grape juice.

Middie - there are a lot worse things out there to drink - there's some good stuff in these drinks.

Is it to be brewed or is it in a "can"? We are getting a TJ's. WOO HOO!! I think they will have to do as they do at the Louis Vuitton store in Paris--only allow so many people to come in until some leave!!

It's already in a tall skinny glass (perfect for a mojito BTW) with a lid you pop off with your thumbs. In the summer one of the grocery stores I go to keep them in a huge tub of ice - right there when you walk in ready to drink nice and cold - the ultimate in impulse advertising

Pomegranate is coming up all over. Snapple is making a Peach pomegranate called red tea. GOOD. Today the students brought in a GQ magazine...there was a full page ad with a "sniff" fold. Similar to cologne sniffs in magazine. It is pomegranate champagne. Well designed bottle, red in color of course and the sniff has a nice.....come buy me smell. Pomegranate is the latest fruit to be excellent for us. GB have you heard about it?

I know this is a little off topic, but while talking about how pomegranate is "coming up" I tried Pama, a pomegranate liqeuer I found at the liquor store, and it was really really good. we've tried drinking it straight, with orange juice, and in hot tea, and it hasn't dissapointed yet.
