Cranberry Apple - Not too sweet and not too tart. A fall favorite
A strong contestant in swaying people in the eternal “hot or cold?” debate: organic Cranberry Apple offers to let you have your tea and drink it too: it's superb cold or hot. A no-nonsense herbal fruit blend, this tisane features a mouth-watering cast of the usual herbal suspects; plus a few surprise guests in center-stage positions. Let's begin with citrus, since your mouth will feel it first. The unswerving tradition of mixing orange peel with hibiscus and rosehip is honored here leading to that time-tested blend of managerial soothing and citrus snap. It's impossible to ignore the puckish sweetness on display here, even as the more mature nostril-fuls of apple enter the mix. The collection's identity, though, is still – just for a moment – untethered until the arrival of the cranberry, whose gravity pulls the mixture to the tongue and throat, making each gulp an herbal wave.
You might say that this is a flavorful tea. Here we have an example of a guilt-free pleasure bath, with this caffeine-free wonder whose every component was nurtured organically: apples, oranges, rose hip, hibiscus, and cranberry alike. All untouched by chemical additive as they grew to maturity. Rich and full when hot, with a lingering cranberry tartness that takes well to being served cold: this tea will wake you up in the morning and put you down, calm, at night. It's fruity, decadent, and handled with the care of its organic predecessors. Reminiscent of fall. Enjoy with a clean conscience! Kids love

I give 5 stars to both the cranberry apple and the bingo Blueberry. I cold brew 1/8 cup of tea to 64 ounces of water. Using 1 1/2 TBS organic sugar and 1 12 TBS Stevia. Makes great ice tea. Either one is delicious
Thanks for the stars and your recipe. I'm trying to stay away for additional sugar but your idea sounds delicious. Keep sipping! ~ Susan
This really is my favorite tea I could drink it all day long!
