Alright do not judge me, I know this tea is nothing special on it’s own. But it is perfect for making your own tea creations. At camp this summer, I had no tea, so every morning, I would mix my lipton tea with cranberry juice, honey and sugar in the raw. It was so sweet but the cranberry juice also made it tangy. I recommend you try this, it was such a hit. One of my friends even made me make him a cup every morning too. :)

What ratios did you use? Sounds lovely.

Well I filled the cup with water about 3/4’s and then added cranberry juice until it was full. Then one squirt of honey, and one pack of sugar in the raw. Nothing special :)

Don’t count yourself short managing to mix up a satisfying cup while at camp must have been hard! So did you infuse the tea before adding the cranberry juice or keep the teabag in throughout the process? I so want to try this I love cranberry mixed with tea but I have such a hard time getting the right mix. :/

Aw thanks, I did keep the tea bag in for the whole process. You really should try it!!

Thank you for the instructions – I really am lost without step by steps. I’ve put all the ingredients on my shopping list – I’m really looking forward to trying it, I just love how you came up with it. :)

Yeah, I missed my tea so much but the lipton tea was just sooooo bland… so I added honey and sugar…. and then cranberry juice! Just cause I love it. :p

Loved your note!
Stuck in a Best Western hotel room tonight with my father
(Tornado destroyed the home)
Thankful everyone is alive due to my father having been in the
hospital and therefore no one was home.
Currently sipping this Lipton decaf @ about 4:45am
and while it may be “nothing special” it was my introduction
to tea as a child, and I can still enjoy it on rare occasions like this one. It is nice in a way to repect humble beginnings.
