This is my just coming out of winter, fruity spring time tea of choice for the moment. I’m really enjoying it. It definitely isn’t an every day kind of tea, but for my current seasonal mood it will remain my go-to.

Opposites attract and travel famously together in this ‘superfruit’ rooibos adventure inspired by the famed ‘Singapore Sling’ cocktail. This tantalizing taste of tart, sweet, and creamy flavors is a nod to the past, created by combining tart cranberry and cherry with sweet pineapple and orange, finished with Madagascar vanilla. Coolest shaken over ice, or served up hot (and stirred).

The description of this tea on Teavana’s website made it sound so good, so cranberry-flavored, I could hardly wait to get my tea order. What a disappointment! The tea was WAY too sweet to be considered cranberry-flavored; more like “cranberry-punch with lots of sugar.” Cranberries are far down the list of ingredients, with sugar, pineapple, and hibiscus figuring prominently. I couldn’t understand why I also had a strong metallic aftertaste when drinking this tea; then I read that the ingredients included MALTODEXTRIN, sugar distarch phosphate, sodium alginate, and riboflavin. YUCK!!!!!!!! What the hell is maltodextrin doing in tea? I am gluten-sensitive and that may have accounted for the fact that this tea left an aftertaste in my mouth akin to what I think chewing on an aluminum can would. Never again.
It’s absolutely fantastic; probably one of my favorites from Teavana so far. It has a hint of juniper with the softness of vanilla and an ever so slight tanginess from the cranberries and pineapple.
I was reading other reviews of this tea and they were mentioning how it had a medicinal/artificial taste, and yes, I cannot deny that it does, but it is barely noticeable I promise.
Overall it’s a great tea and I would recommend it to anyone :)
I picked this tea up on a whim, because it smelled good. What a good idea! I enjoy drinking it hot, with just a hint of sugar. It’s good iced as well. I taste cherries, cranberries, and citrus notes. I haven’t noticed the cough syrupy aftertaste that some people complain about. Would definitely buy again.
