Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea.
This is surprisingly good. The black tea base is not harsh or bitter or course like I have often experienced in Adagio’s black tea blends. It actually tastes smooth, although there is a fair amount of astringency at the finish. The cranberry is a light note, sweet with a touch of tart but not that typical TART of a cranberry. The tartness arrives later, in the aftertaste, but it is still not an overtly tart taste.
