Tea News - Republic of Tea Pomegranate

Pomegranate Green Tea
Republic of Tea

If you've ever been in the market for decent quality tea and didn't want to have to resort to mail order, then you may have run across Republic of Tea's products. The Novato, CA-based company has been doing their thing since 1992 and, while you may not find them in the average grocery store, you stand a pretty good chance of stumbling across their wares in more upscale groceries, specialty stores and the like.

One of the company's latest ventures is a Pomegranate Green Tea, which recently hit the market. It's a blend of Chinese green tea with pomegranate juice produced by the POM Wonderful company. The latter are said to be "largest grower and marketer of the Wonderful variety of fresh pomegranates." To which I say - why not, somebody's gotta be.

Suggested retail price is $9 for a 2.8 ounce tin containing 50 of Republic's nifty round tea bags. I don't recall if I've ever eaten a pomegranate (I seem to vaguely recall eating a pomeranian once, but that's another story), but it all sounds fine and dandy by me.
