Tea Information:
Tea: Cranberry Black Tea

Company: 52Teas

Description: Do NOT let the simplicity of this blend beguile you. No, it’s not Pancake Breakfast or Rainbow Sherbet. It’s not Buttered Cinnamon Raisin Toast or Maple Bacon. It’s just Cranberry…
…Just awe-inducing, sweet and tart and delicious CRANBERRY with a base of fine Indian black teas blended with real freeze-dried cranberries. Not shriveled up old craisins. No, these are plump, ripe cranberries, freeze-dried at the peak of their deliciousness and now waiting for you to re-hydrate them and let their cranberry goodness tickle your senses and tastify your tea. Yes, I just made that up, but that is what they will do, leave you smacking your lips like only the sweet tartness of cranberry can do. Enjoy!
