What is Pomegranate Tea? Pomegranate Tea is made from either the fruit juice extracted from the arils, or from the dried or fresh arils and seeds.
The Pomegranate juice is also used in drinks and as a dietary supplement. Pomegranate juice is rich in antioxidants and vitamins.
The Pomegranate tea is often added to a black, green, or other herbal tea to form a blend. Most pomegranate tea bags come in a blend with other teas.
