Melville, NY (March 2006)—Antioxidants have long been known as a powerful ally in the fight against harmful free radicals. New Mountain Sun™ Pure Blends Pomegranate Rooibos Juice & Red Tea combines pure pomegranate juice from Mountain Sun™ with Celestial Seasonings® naturally caffeine free rooibos tea from the Cedarburg Mountains of South Africa for a double dose of antioxidant power.

The ancient pomegranate is a good source of natural antioxidants, with all the goodness contained in its jewel-like arils—hundreds of small pods bursting with delicious, sweet-tart flavor. Rooibos (Afrikaans for “red bush”), or red tea, is an herb tea made from the foliage of the hardy African rooibos shrub. Red tea has long been enjoyed for its refreshing flavor, and scientific research reveals that it is also brimming with beneficial minerals and is high in flavonoids—some of the most potent antioxidants available.1

Like all Mountain Sun products, this 100% natural blend contains no refined sweeteners or artificial ingredients. Pomegranate Rooibos Juice & Red Tea, made with 100% pure juice, is an excellent source of Vitamin C. Look for NEW Mountain Sun PureBlends Pomegranate Rooibos Red Tea with Celestial Seasonings Tea to join the premium line of Mountain Sun varieties including:

  • Pure Cranberry
  • Pure Blends Pomegranate Black Cherry Juice
  • Pure Blends Grape & Acai
  • Pure Blends Blueberry Green Tea made with Celestial Seasonings Green Tea

Mountain Sun Pomegranate Rooibos Juice & Red Tea will be available in a 32-oz. bottle beginning June 2006 in natural food stores and the natural juice section of grocery stores, and will retail for approximately $6.99.
