I made this iced with a little lemon. The combination of lemon and cranberry is extremely tart; I’m not sure how much I like this. It kind of tastes like foot.

SoccerMom

Like foot! LOL

Cofftea

Better than tasting like butt… or the ladybug that was on my raspberry cheese cake last nite.

denisend

I bought this one to drink iced and hated it iced. It’s much better hot, IMO!

Meghann M

Good to know, I’ll stay away from foot tea!

~lauren.

oh dear, Foot?!?! LOL!

Erin

Oh no, Cofftea! That is terrible! I like ladybugs, and I LOVE cheesecake, but certainly not together.

Cofftea

Yeah… Idk what’s carrier, the fact that it was there or the fact that I could identify it (w/ my tongue, not my eyes) as a bug… even though I’ve never eaten a bug lol.

__Morgana__

At least it doesn’t have protective ice. Lol.

TART!!!!!!!!! Very Tart black tea, luckily I’m a fan of tarty teas so I enjoyed the flamboyant flavors of this black tea. As I kept sipping this tea, I noticed that it has rich flavors beyond cranberry that I can’t quite put my finger on yet. I imagine this one iced on a hot summer day like yesterday with a squeeze of lime or lemon :)
I must say I chose a bad combo of breakfast with this tea, as I had it with Nutella croissants so the chocolate and cranberry tartness was a little iffy lol but I will retry by itself.
My question to you : What do YOU think of Tart teas? Do you like them? Hate Them? Iced? Hot? I want your opinions!

mpierce87

Tart teas are okay, but I have to be in the mood for them. My husband, on the other hand, LOVES tartness…the more tart, the better. I think tart teas are best cold, at least for me because it can seem to tone down the tartness slightly.

Ewa

I don’t tend to like my teas to be tart. It’s so easy for them to go over the line – I don’t want tartness to be ALL that I’m tasting. A little tartness is ok though.

Rabs

I’m sooo close to coming down on the “hate” side of tart, but I think I’m more with Ewa on this one. I think that I need to try a wider range of teas (tart ones included) to make my official call :)

JonTea

Well it’s easy to “hate” something, but realizing that something is great in its own unique way is the hard part. :) however I personally am a fan of tart :D

LissaMarie

Nutella croissants sound amazing. that’s all.

oh and tart flavors…not in tea, but I it otherwise. I love kumquats and rhubarb, which are both pretty tart fruits. Cranberries are great too.

JonTea

Nutella is amazing :)
we all have our preferences :D

Miss Sweet

I don’t like tart teas hot at all and prefer them iced as it usually helps other flavors (aside from “TART!!”) come through :)

Thanks to Erin I am getting to try this tea. I would have never thought to purchase this as cranberry usually isn’t my thing unless it’s Thanksgiving and then I MUST have cranberry to serve with my turkey and dressing (yes it’s dressing here made from a cornbread base not stuffing).

Anyway I am sooooo grateful to Erin for sending this one it is quite YUMMY. I didn’t really get much smell out of the dry leaf but once brewed up it smells like a hard candy I can’t quite put my finger on the exact candy but it reminds me of some hard candy I had as a kid. The taste is a sweet cranberry I’m getting no tartness whatsoever and that’s a good thing I don’t like tarts or tartiness or tardiness :) hee hee any way the cranberry taste does not override the ceylon base but blends with it to make a beautiful blend. I really like this tea and did I mention the liquor is a clear reddish amber and it’s very pretty. I am ordering more of this and will try serving it iced.

Muchos Gracias Erin!!

This is one of my AM go-to teas. I can’t speak to the tartness because I sweeten all my teas! I have to say that my stock of this is on the older side but it still tastes good; the black tea flavor is a little weak but the cranberry and blackberry notes shine through. A great morning pick-me-up.

For some reason, cranberry really appealed today. Maybe because I plan on baking homemade bread and wrapping gifts?

fourth tea sampled from TTB-C

Ah gee, I am not having any luck finding a good fruit flavored tea tonight. So after the fruity-car-air-freshener tea I get Play-Doh! yep, play doh. (I see that moraiwe also detected the play-doh, glad that it’s not just me :p ).

A very tart tasting tea, I tried this with dessert so perhaps not a good choice as I found it very strong. Very flavorful and overall a nice tea.

Boiling 2 min, 30 sec

This tea has a really artificial smell and my brain keeps wanting to associate it with Play Doh. Luckily it tastes a little better, and is just a mild black tea with a tart, fruity flavor that doesn’t necessarily remind me of cranberries, but isn’t offensive. It’s smooth and I don’t pick up any bitterness, but it’s not remarkable in any way. I’m more excited that I’m down to the last 2-3 cups and then I can reuse the tin.

Meh. I will have to try this tea again when I don’t have a cold, but so far I don’t really like it. The dry leaves smell floral and berry-like, but brewed the tea is tart and astringent. I tasted it plain, then had to add a bunch of honey and soy creamer to make it palatable. I think I’m going to dump this out and make some Earl Grey instead – the ultimate comfort tea.

I really wanted to like this tea, but like many Teavana blends it just fell flat – only managing to hold dual notes of tart fruit and tolerable black tea. It was nice enough to drink while doing laundry, but didn’t hold my interest long enough to finish the cup.
