AZ pomegranate green tea

If a blog wanted to, it could devote itself 24-7 to Arizona, which intros new beverages w/ stunning frequency. (Pity this blog already has other, far better things on which to fixate.) Aside from sheer abundance, what makes AZ compelling is the way its flavor innovations follow (or is it lead?) the latest nutraceutical trends and is thus somewhat pop-culturey. With no further ado: Arizona pomegranate green tea. Pomegranate, as you know, is a hot new antioxidant -- but to be safe, AZ also IDs it on the label as "Chinese apple" for those not yet up on the pomegranate thing.

I read somewhere recently that 90 percent of americans get 100 percent of their antioxidants from coffee, and that coffee has way more antioxidants than anything else on the planet. something like that.

hey good eye - coffee IS the newest-new antioxidant buzz item ... so i guess we can look forward to a coffee-flavored AZ Tea coming soon to our CVS or independently-run convenience store (see, no mention of 7-11, even tho they're the ones that usually stock all that stuff)

Somehow, pomegranate anything makes me expect to have small bits of stuff to chew on. But that will never catch on in the U.S. Remember Orbit, that liquid goo with the neon-colored floaties? This was before the hey-day of boba teas.

I'm always the one to ask this but here goes: What does it taste like? I don't think I've had pomegranite.

I like tea. Especially the Twining's flavored kind. It's very regal tasting.

Back to you Ms.ery.

doris, i loved orbit! i love anything with texture. i don't even mind chewing those crunchy pomegranate seeds. M.B., i'd hoped this would have a tart thing but it was pretty damn sweet. i think i read somewhere that it has "5% juice". the other 95% is prob sugar!

I'm sorry, but except for coffee, which I drink black, I do not understand spending money on beverages --unless they are alcoholic.

I agree. If i can steal it, why pay for it?

Okay, Ms.ery, how about a Long Island then?
