I received this tea from a friend a month or so ago. I am not big on bagged tea, as I’ve said before, but, this one isn’t bad.

This is a very “autumnal” tasting tea… I guess that’s because I always add oranges to my cranberry compote on Thanksgiving. Cranberries and oranges just seem to go together so well!

The black tea base is smooth, not too strong (it doesn’t overwhelm the fruit flavors, but, it is not hiding behind them, either), and has an enjoyable, rich and full flavor.

The cranberry flavor is tart and tasty, and the blood orange tastes juicy and sweet. It’s a really nice contrast – black tea, tart cranberry, and sweet citrus-y flavor. Nice. The after taste is very cranberry-ish.

How tart would you say it is? Like super tart or just mildly tart?

JonTea: just mildly tart. But the aftertaste has that “berry” sort of aftertaste… sort of like a little cranberry has burst in your mouth … not a BIG flavor, but just that little, berry-ish tart presence in the aftertaste.

That sounds very interesting. I must try this tea some time.

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
