Dragon Pearl Tea Company is against the war in Iraq, but supports U.S. troops by sending them green tea

GROVER BEACH, Calif. - Nov. 7 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Sergeant Kolmar, stationed in Iraq, is one of the thousands of troops who now have received natural green tea from California-based Dragon Pearl Tea. He sent his thanks for the U.S. Troop Care Package that contained a travel-size version of Dragon Pearl's most popular tea product. "Our Platoon buddy loved the tea," he wrote. "He has several glasses a day. Personally I don't know how he does it when it's still in the 104's every day! Many people say they 'support the troops' but you actually showed it. Thanks."

If we can share a little bit of that with the U.S. armed forces serving in Iraq, we are furthering our mission."

Two hundred and fifty cases of Dragon Pearl Tea were shipped this fall to troops in Iraq through an all-volunteer group called U.S. Troop Care Package (

According to Dave Dahl, the organic green tea travel packs will help keep the troops alert and support their health, and are a natural alternative to coffee and soda.
