One of my Favs: Pomegranate Green Tea

Posted on February 22, 2010


Pomegranate green tea is awesome. You’re combining one of the most antioxidant rich fruits with a tea that contains EGCG, a substance linked to reduced inflammation, enhanced muscle recovery, and one of the most potent antioxidants. There’s no doubt that it’s healthy and you should drink it, but it can get expensive. So for the past few weeks, Doug and I have been making our own PGT. It’s cheap and simple:

Just boil some water

Find a big, empty jug and fill about 10% of it with 100% pomegranate juice.

Then pour boiling water over 5 or 6 of your favorite green tea bags (I always brew a caffeinated and decaf version)

Steep for a few minutes and then pour the tea into the jug with your pomegranate juice. Put in the fridge for a few hours and VOILA! You have refreshing, fitness-improving PGT.

Bottom line: Drinking it will make you better triathlete.
