Want “in” on one of the best new green tea blends in the nation?! Well, allow me to introduce you to one of Art of Tea’s latest creations: Green Pomegranate.
This delectable fusion took 2nd place in the Green Tea category at last week’s World Tea Expo in Atlanta, GA, and is blazing a trail of devotees across L.A.
Steve Schwartz, our inspired leader and master-blender, has combined fresh, fragrant green sencha tea with raspberries, rosehips and essence of pomegranate. The fact that pomegranate is America’s current culinary darling for its anti-oxidant benefits is just icing on the cake. Combined with the already lauded anti-oxidant properties of green tea, this blend provides a power-punch of both healthful benefits and amazing flavor.
Then there’s the aroma – just opening the container and taking in the bouquet will send you over the edge. And if you thought indulging in this prize-winner hot was as good as it could get, then you’re going to flip over what you and all your friends are going to say was the highlight of 2007’s summer: Green Pomegranate iced tea!
For a fabulous and fun way to enjoy Green Pomegranate iced, use our Iced Tea Shaker Set to make hand-shaken iced tea! This is a great way prepare iced tea in fresh, individual batches, as well as when entertaining guests. And if you’re feeling adventurous one of these hot summer nights, try mixing Green Pomegranate into an exotic, specialty cocktail! My favorite is mixing chilled Green Pomegranate with pomegranate liqueur – Pama makes a wonderful one.
Combine two parts Green Pomegranate tea with one part pomegranate liqueur and shake it up with ice in a shaker, or serve on the rocks, for a light and refreshing cocktail. If you prefer yours a little tarter, try using equal parts tea and liqueur. For added yumminess, throw in fresh, crushed strawberries.
With the limitless possibilities of tea, feel free to experiment. And if you come up with any winning combinations, please share the joy with us. But be sure, laced in liqueur or not, with Green Pomegranate in hand, you’ll be beckoning the burgeoning summer sun to “bring it on” with the coolest drink in town.
