Wanted red tea but without the heaviness of CS’ Madagascar Vanilla with milk, so I’m a double mug of this for my morning tea. The tart cranberry is really helping to wake up my tastebuds! Maybe I’ll make a pitcher of it iced for later….
Drinking this tea, and eating Wensleydale cheese w/ cranberries, on top of Cranberry Hazelnut Raincoast Crisps
(p.s. Raincoast Crisps are awesome fruity/nutty crackery crispbread things. Good plain , or with cheese, dips, etc. This is the first flavor I’ve tried but I think I’ll be buying them all and taking them to/serving them at parties this holiday season. I got them at a local organic grocery store. (The product comes from Canada so if I can get it in the middle of nowhere NC they probably have pretty wide distribution!)

Brewed up one bag of Madagascar Vanilla Red plus one teaspoon of Cruising Cranberry in 8 oz boiling water, then decanted over a cup of ice and chilled in the fridge for a few a couple hours. My idea was that the teabag would add some body, depth, and vanilla to the berry-heavy CC, which I think it did. This was a refreshing iced tisane that needed no additives. I would probably make this again as a larger batch.
Boca Javas’ rooibo tea used to make me feel soothingly relaxed but I can’t find it anywhere . Boca Java has a new tea called cruising cranberry tea now but it is a black tea. It has different other ingredients also.
the sweetness of the rooibos and tartness of the berries make this such a soothing tisane. I love it’s red wine color as well.
I’ve had this tea an awful lot in the past few months! I made a cup hot today while also brewing some for a pitcher of iced. So I’ll be drinking some more this week!
mixed 1.5 tsp with 1 bag Red Chai & Rooibos Red Tea Blend by World Classics in a big mug to create a spiced cranberry rooibos drink. Nice for a grey, rainy day. Would be good in winter!
finally tried it iced – still tastes like all berries and no rooibos to me, but it’s refreshing. I added too much water though, so next time I need to pay more attention to the ratio.
It’s so “juicy” that I can’t even taste the rooibos, but it does make for a very thirst-quenching cup, even when hot.
Lovely pink color and kickin’ cranberry flavor!
Yerba mate I’s way different to me and the slight chocolate taste I’s nice. This I’s decent.
I used more than the recommended amount this time for steeping and it’s loads more flavorful. It’s still not perfect and I might not be getting all of the flavors due to my cold. Or it might just be that me + rooibos are not friends.
I really want to like this tea, because I love hot apple cider & caramel apples, but so far those flavors are so subtle, I can’t taste them. It seems that every time I give rooibos a shot, I’m always disappointed. I’m going to try steeping this a longer time and try again.
