I’m surprised that this tea has low ratings as it’s a favorite of mine. I hope that doesn’t imply anything negative about my palate, but to each his own, right?
One of my favorite coffee shops makes this as a tea latte so on my last H&S order, I bought a tagalong tin to experiment. It wasn’t very hard to emulate – in fact, I discovered one could just add milk without going down the latte route and it tastes roughly the same. It’s not exactly the same because the coffee shop puts flavored syrup in its tea latte but now that I’ve made it at home a few times, I like it more without the flavoring.
I like this one as both a hot tea latte and as an iced tea latte. I’ve never had the tea on its own, so that might be one thing that differentiates me from the other reviewers. With the “latte”, I can taste the cranberry orange-ness but the milk adds a bit of creaminess, which is quite nice. I like to drink it as a dessert tea for times when I’m trying to limit my caffeine and/or sugar intake but am still in the mood for something that tastes indulgent.
Sadly, I only have one more bag left of this. But on my next H&S order, I’ll definitely be restocking and buying a bigger size of this tea.
