I love this one. Too bad it’s only available for the holidays.

Preparation notes: Teavana’s Easy Tea Steeper with a dash of splenda
I figured out one reason that I dislike using the tea steeper – it’s much larger than my mug and when draining I can’t see how full my mug is to know if I need to pull the steeper off.
For this mug of tea I could have added more water (and probably should have, it’s pretty strong), but it’s guesswork. Perhaps I’ll just bring in a larger mug from home.
The leaves smell like cranberry, but the tea doesn’t. There’s a hint of fruit, but it’s not really identifable as cranberry to me. Maybe I just made the tea too strong so the tea flavor is overwhelming the cranberry flavor?
Not impressed. Teavana’s cranberry actually tastes like cranberry.
I thought this would be a delightful tea for fall and the holidays. It is. I’m not a HUGE fan of cranberry; if you are, this will probably be even better to you. The flavoring is rather mild, which was good for me. It’s a lovely color and a nice scent. I think it may be good mixed with some spirits as it reminds me of a cosmo. :)
Like Adagio’s candy cane tea, the delicious scents of cranberry fills the room once you open the canister and once you start steeping.
The taste is very fruity and sweet, with a slight tartness.
The black tea and fruit have blended well to give a very soft brew with a deep red tint.
I am very surprised with this tea, as I did not expect to like it as much as I have.
The first time I had this I thought it was ah… so, so. Which was a disappointment because cranberries are one of my favorite things, ever. But every additional time I’ve made this tea, I’ve liked it better. I suspect the tin will be gone by next Christmas, so I hope they keep up the tradition and make it again so I can restock. The aroma is fantastic – I get cranberries, warmth and just a hint of honey. The taste is a bit weak for me, I generally prefer a strong, black tea, but I like it enough to crave it in the evenings.
I don’t like cranberry. But there the tea was, staring at me accusingly, the only untried flavour in Adagio’s holiday sampler. I felt guilty, so I tried it. Expecting to pucker my mouth and crinkle my nose with displeasure, I was shocked when I returned to my mug for one sip after another. It’s actually a very nice tea!
There is one thing, though, and it’s that the cranberry is extremely subtle. It’s a very, very, very slightly fruity black tea, and that’s probably why I like it. If you actually like cranberry tea/flavour, I think you may be disappointed by this one.
