I had my misgivings about the combination of cranberry and lemon together. Sure, I like cranberry teas, and I like lemon teas. But usually when I see a cranberry and citrus fruit tea, it’s usually paired with orange and that’s just fine with me because the orange is sweet and helps soften the tartness of the cranberry. But lemon is a tart fruit. Cranberry is a tart fruit. This just sounds TART.
It’s alright. Not my favorite tea from Boston Tea but it’s alright. I enjoyed it. I believe the black tea base here saves this, because it’s a smooth, robust black tea and the sweet notes of the malt notes help soften the tartier flavors (yes, tartier is a word even though my computer wants to put that wavy red line under it to indicate that I misspelled something. It’s a word because I just decided it was.) And the boldness of the black tea helps take some of the taste buds’ attention off of the fact that we’re dealing with two tart fruits in this blend.

A pleasant tea. I’d drink it again if it was offered to me, but it’s probably not one that I’d seek out and purchase for myself.
