Two days before the Chinese New Year (Year of the Ox 2009) my partner and I went down to Chinatown in New York City to eat Dim Sum and purchase Chinese confetti cannons for our niece and nephew. The Dim Sum was terribly salty (though delicious) and I found myself needing a mouth watering drink. We were in a Vietnamese sandwich shop getting food for the nights dinner and I noticed an iced tea drink made of pomegranate and white tea. I am a fanatic pomegranate lover so I found the taste absolutely delicious. This is my attempt to recreate that blend. The purchased iced tea also included acai so I've substituted that with a hint of candy apple to balance the tartness of the pomegranate. May your year be bright and blessed and may the Ox bring you much fortune.
