I feel like this drink was purposefully trying to make me crabby. Firstly the shit cost $3 a pop, which I guess is par for the course, given that the entire POM product line seems geared towards the kind of people who have very specific ideas about how much quilting they need on their toilet paper. EVEN SO, the tea is sold in an actual glass, and the language on the label invites you to keep and reuse this glass, like it’s some kind of awesome door prize or lovely parting gift, just totally sweetening the whole deal. But no offense I already own a glass so what am I paying for here exactly.
And then there’s the opening mechanism on the lid, which was very awkward, and when all was said and done I had $0.85 worth of lychee-infused tea all over my fingers and desk. And if you don’t know, I do not like for my fingers and work space to be sticky. I have Certain Rules about general cleanliness.
Yes OK but aside from all that how was it. Eh. Adequate I guess? Good lychee flavor. I don’t care for pomegranate juice, so whatever was happening here to surpress it was a good thing. But between the other flavors I didn’t get much of a sense of the green tea, except that it left the usual mossy coating on the inside of my mouth, like I had brushed my teeth with a koala. I forget the scientific term for that.
So if you are a person who feels like you are not paying enough money for your not terrible but also not particularly inspiring fruity tea then guess what have I got a product for you! Comes with a glass!
