drank Cranberry Apple by Bigelow
83 tasting notes

Alaska Airlines serves this tea in their Anchorage to Nome flights. I’m pretty sure the teabag has traveled many, many miles, and is probably really old. However, I was happy with this tea — it was super red (hibiscus coloring?), but I could taste the cranberry and apple. I don’t know, the ingredients list is different on my teabag, so perhaps the blend has changed? It got pretty tart after about 5 minutes of steeping, but it was good without sweetener.

You’re right on the coloring, hibiscus contributes to the rich red color….blend hasn’t changed, how did the ingredients differ? You can contact us directly at 1-888-244-3569 if you’d like.

It looks like there was a wording change, but the ingredients are the same — I was looking at the “cranberry fiber flake” part in comparison to the ingredients listed. Are there still fiber flakes? That sounds interesting.

Profile

Bio

Calochortus likes plants and knitting and bacteria. She doesn’t have a very large tea allowance, so expect a lot of grocery store/local/home-grown/bagged teas. She’s grown up with tea, as it is part of (half of) her culture.

Her favorite teas are black and usually fruity or vanilla-y. She likes to put milk in her tea, too, but she’s trying to widen her palette with green teas and rooibos. She finds that tea leaves are great for composting, too.

Location

The fictional state of Washidamont (Eastern WA, Northern ID, and Western MT)
