Kissably festive

When we think of the holidays, we imagine ourselves playing in the snow, or sitting in front of a roaring fire. But let’s face it, we all spend most of the season in our kitchens. There are cookies to bake. Feasts to prepare. And most importantly, tea to brew. Like this festive fruit-and-spice green tea blend, bursting with cranberries, apples, cinnamon and star anise. One cup fills us with so much holiday cheer, we feel like jumping up and kissing someone. But maybe that’s just because the secret ingredient is mistletoe…

Ingredients: Cranberry, apple, green tea, mistletoe leaves, star anise, cinnamon, blackberry leaves, safflower, artificial flavouring*.

Sadness! This is the very last of this tea from WheezyBee.

It’s so tasty. IDK what it tastes like, exactly, but I’m getting vanilla and sweet-tart fruit. It’s very creamy, as well.

If it was available, I’d totally buy some. Sadly it’s not, but I’m really glad I was able to try it! Thank you!

This one is sweet and spicy and I love the anise… because I love anise. It has SO many berries and cinnamon sticks and anise stars, I don’t think I’ll get much out of my 50g bag, but it’s a nice tea to have around for cozy nights at home.

This one I enjoyed, but I (think) the star anise is very Christmas-y for me, and I didn’t feel right drinking it any other time haha.


I totally agree, it tastes exactly like Christmas. I think I can handle drinking it on cold evenings at home, in the winter, but that’s about it. It is definitely not a beverage for the summer months.

I was really indecisive this morning about what tea I wanted to have. I spent probably 15 minutes alone going through my work stash, trying to figure out which one I wanted. In the end I kept cycling back to this one so it’s what I ended up with.

It’s still not my most favorite tea as I’m really not that big of a cranberry person but it’s one of those teas that when the mood strikes (or if there’s nothing else that sounds right) then it hits the spot. Tart cranberry evened out with anise, safflower and cinnamon… the combo really does work well (although I think I ended up with a bit too much anise in my basket today, oh well); it’s a subtle, compelling blend. I bet it would be good iced/cold brewed too.


I saw this on special and thought about ordering it, but then I saw what was in it and wasn’t inspired. Let us know what it tastes like iced :)

Tea #2 from my order (I bought a few new to me teas & some tried & true favs like 200g of Forever Nuts).

The dry notes smell sweet & fruity, a find it’s more of a mixed berry fruit smell than strictly cranberry. I’m not really getting any of the spices from it. I do smell a green/earthy like smell which I attribute more to the mistletoe than the actual green tea.

It steeps up a golden green colour, but really I think it should be red. The taste is delicious, sweet, fruity & green tasting. I really think it could use more of the cinnamon & anise flavours. That would definetly up the rating.

Maybe this is just silly or the placebo affect because I know there is mistletoe in it, but this tea really is almost magical & Christmas tasting.

This tea smells pretty good. I’ve learned I enjoy cranberry in tea – Cranberry Pear and Prairie Berry. This one has a smell of spiciness as well.

For such a heavy seeming tea this has a nice light flavour. I’m guessing that spice I’m tasting is the star anise but I’m not completely sure. Whatever the spiciness is, it’s making it very holiday-like. Certainly not a tea I could drink all the time. It is delicious though.

The flavour reminds me of candles that you would burn around Christmastime. Apple, cinnamon and cranberry flavours are the most prominent. I could not detect any green tea flavour.


I was going to try this tea until I read that it had mistletoe and it kinda freaked me out since I have always heard about it being poisonous glad to see a review! :)


Well, I’m still alive and well so it must be okay ;) It has a really interesting flavour which definitely reminds me of Christmas but I feel that this one is more of a ‘novel-tea’ (bad puns to start my day- how wonderful!! :p)

Cranberries, apples and spices. The mix just sounds fantastic and cozy to try while near the ice rink. Or at least while watching the figure skating season on television. It’s definitely a sweet dessert tea that I can agree with my fellow reviewers. It is the star anise, cinnamon and mistletoe that cuts through this however.

Closing my eyes as I drink this one I can picture hanging up the wreath and setting up the decorations with ease. Both from the taste and from the reminder of the appearance of the dry mix. Another great choice for the holiday season and picking up last minute gifts. Cheers!

Things I learn on a Saturday afternoon… When you watch the whole star of anise dominate the scoop of tea you have scooped, that probably does not bode well for the cup. This was a very anisy cup of cranberry tea, like a ridiculously anisy cup of cranberry tea. I drank it, because it was not undrinkable, but I will be watching my anise stars in this tea very carefully in the future!

This was interesting. I had been looking for a cranberry tea and was excited to try it. The cranberry and apple dominated this green and the star anise showed up in the aftertaste. I’m not a big fan of anything licorice-like at all, but I could barely taste the star anise (which was a relief!). My search for a cranberry tea continues, though. I think DAVIDsTEA has a cranberry pear tea which would be right up my alley.

I have neglected my beloved steepster for far too long!
I am back and wish you all a wickedly good new year and hope you got spoiled with tea for Christmas.

I’m starting with an herbal for 2013 still from my obsessive relationship with davidstea ….oh my love may we never be parted.

Soooo merry cranberry dry smells like those dried fruit bars like healthy fruit roll ups!

I ate a dried cranberry from the tin and it was nice as cranberries usually are( better then raisins).
As per my habit with fruity teasI steeped longer and put more in ….full flavour or get off my boat…or is it bus?

Once steeped just smells like tea..smells like I may have accidentally made it bitter oh well first flop of 2013 ? We will see.

As for taste it is actually nice it has a fruity fuzzy robe on for sure but it’s the black tea that centres has a nice tartness that overshadows any bitterness and I think it would work with a good icing in the is no Paradise Found but its decent in it’s own right it’s what I wished Pu’erh would taste more like less earth dirty and more rich dark tea leaves steeped in history.

I will definitely be trying it again but I am rating it nonetheless that’s how I roll.

Cheers my tea loving friends drink deep and well and never stop :-)
