Here’s breakdown of the teas, in order of my preference.
POMx Light Pomegranate Hibiscus Green Tea
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
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
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!
