Braswell's Pomegranate Passion Red Tea
I'll bet I'm not the only one who has wondered about those ready-to-drink Braswell's teas at T.J. Maxx, so I decided it was time to try one out. They're $2.49 and come in "collectible glassware." I chose the Pomegranate Passion Red Tea and really enjoyed the flavor. The tea (about 8 ounces, 60 calories, 14 grams of sugar) contains rooibos tea, pure cane sugar, juices of peach, pomegranate and passion fruit, and citric acid. It was very good, and I will likely try this again sometime as a treat.
The method of sealing the tea inside the glass was quite interesting. There was the typical metal lid you see on glass jars, yes, but there was a little pull tab as well. When you remove the tab, the button safety seal pops up. Turns out, there was a tiny little air hole beneath that pull tab. They must invest in really good adhesive to keep those pull tabs in place!
And here is what the glass looks like once you've drunk the tea and removed the labels. Do you know how hard it is to photograph a clear glass on a white background? At least you get the idea. Have you tried any flavors of this tea, and if so what did you think?
