From ancient times to tomorrow’s morning show, there’s no disputing that the beautiful pomegranate is a superfood for the ages. Let’s just say it’s probably here to stay. Its many benefits as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and immune support are essentials for hikers and campers everywhere. We’ve paired it with an old staple—mint tea—and have concocted a refreshing summer delight that will make your body and taste buds happy.

Serves 4, about 1 cup each


3 mint tea bags
3-1/2 cups boiling water
3 tablespoons simple syrup
1 cup pomegranate  juice
Fresh mint leaves and lime for garnish


  1. Bring 3-1/2 cups of water to a boil. Pour the boiling water into a 1-quart jug, add the tea bags and steep for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags and let cool.
  2. To make simple syrup: Put the 3 tablespoons of sugar in a small pot (or a microwave-proof cup) with 3 tablespoons water and bring to a simmer. Stir to dissolve the sugar then let cool a bit.
  3. Combine the tea and simple syrup with 1 cup of pomegranate juice in a 1-quart jug with a tight seal. Some of the water will have evaporated while boiling, so it should be full (4 cups).


  1.  Pour the tea mixture over ice, add a squeeze of lime, a few mint leaves, sit back, and relax.
