Favourite Things Friday: POM

January 25, 2008

I've heard a lot of good things about white tea and how it's supposed to be really good for you (well, and one cynical comment about it being a hoax but I'll just ignore that one) but I've never actually tried it out until recently. I picked up a glass of POM's Pomegranate Peach Passion White Tea for breakfast a couple weeks ago and I enjoyed it thoroughly.

I generally like all sorts of fruit-flavoured teas, and though they're coming out with more green and white tea flavours now, most of the teas in the past have used black teas (I presume). The white tea was much lighter and didn't have much of the normal tea-'aftertaste'*. Plus, after you're done with the glass, you can wash it out and keep it (and sniff it because it has a nice light peach-y scent) - how environmentally friendly.

*My parents always used to tell me to drink (Chinese) tea to quench my thirst but I never really understood that because I'd always be left with a dry feeling in my mouth after.

I went to slc and purposely went to look for this the other day just to try it but they were SOLD OUT!!!

All they had was blackberry.

I think not.
