This tea is a blend of cranberry, orange peel and herbs. At first I tried this tea hot, but for me it was too tart. Most fruit, herbal teas with cranberry or hibiscus are too tart for my taste. I then added a bit of honey and that didn’t help.
So, let it cool, then poured it over ice and it was prefect! I could taste the cranberry, but it was overpowering and being cold gave it a refreshing quality. Of course adding ice dilutes the flavor a bit, but not too much if you drink it before the ice melts. For some reason, cold tart drinks are just fine in my book, but hot ones are not. Is this true for any of you?
Taste: 3.5 of 5 leaves – A decent tasty tea.
