I love the tartness of the cranberry taste. Some how, it seems very different from the tartness in hibiscus (which I don’t like). It’s funny that it has hibiscus but not cranberry in the ingredients. It’s very refreshing. I needed a change from some of my other caffeine free teas. They all seemed to be focused on making me sleepy. (But that was obviously my poor choice; I mean if I choose Sleepytime Vanilla and Soothing Caramel Bedtime what do I think they are going to be like!) This tea has a bit of freshness and liveliness that I need in the middle of the afternoon. With some sweetener it tastes almost like a nice cranberry juice. In a good way. I have a feeling that this will be wonderful cold this summer. This tea reminds me of another tea, Warming Crimson Berry from Frontier Natural Products Co-op. Warming Crimson Berry had some peppercorn and red pepper flakes. It was a great cold weather tea. I think I could make this into a spicy winter treat. A tea for all seasons?
BTW, I really don’t like thievery limited pull down list for flavors and scents and that I can’t put in my own flavors and tastes.

Retired first grade teacher. I tend to like dessert type/herbal teas as a substitute for sweet treats; flavored black teas and mates to get that energy that I am often lacking ;-p
My husband of 43 years thinks I’m nuts regarding the whole tea thing… but he bought me a Breville for Christmas, so what can I say. :-D
My other interests are reading (books go well with tea :D) and beading. I volunteer at my “old” school teaching reading and I volunteer for the blind. I am trying hard to lose weight ( I have now lost 40 lbs and I’m looking good in my skinny jeans, IMHO) I am now walking about 4.5 miles a day and I am trying to do some core work for about 30 min. 3x a week.

I have been watching Doctor Who for 33years. In case you can’t tell my avatar is two daleks drinking tea! I am always open to swapping Doctor Who books for tea. I have about 120 Doctor Who books that I am eager to send some to a fan. :D Let me know if you would like any books! I love that so many people have begun watching DW!

Also I love swaps, pm me if you’d like to do a swap.

Since I find others’ rating legends helpful, I added my own.

95-100 A once in a lifetime experience; the best there is; will keep this stocked until the cows come home

90-94 First rate; top notch; really terrific; will definitely buy more

80-89 Excellent; likely to become a favorite, will likely buy more

70-79 Very good; would enjoy again, might buy again if in the mood for this particular one or a better, similar version not available or it’s on a really good sale :-)

50-69 Good; wouldn’t pass up if offered, but probably wouldn’t buy again unless craving this particular flavor

Below 50 Meh! Wouldn’t bother drinking it again.
