This pomegranate white tea is the quiet power tea. Fragile tea buds plucked and dried into delicate emerald twirls are mixed with dried pomegranate for a fragrant tea that possesses a subtle tranquility. Yet, from the first sip you can feel vitamins, antioxidants, and a hint of caffeine begin to surge through your body and give you that extra jolt of energy you need to get through your day.
While this tea is absolutely darling on its own, mixing it with a bit of peach juice would make for an energizing morning drink. For the dessert lover we love to use it for a simple milk pudding. Place 2 teaspoons of gelatin with 2 tablespoons if water in a bowl and allow to gel. Heat the 1 cup of cream and 1 tablespoon of white pomegranate tea over medium and add ½ cup of sugar and stir until dissolved. Strain out the tea. Stir the gelatin mixture into the cream and dissolve. Once it cools to room temperature stir in 2 cups of milk. Pour into serving bowls, cover with plastic wrap, and chill until set. Serve with a bit of your favorite jam.
