Amazon Customer Review : This book not only gives a description of the different types of teas, it tells how they are processed from the same plant to make the different teas and the history of tea from China to India, to Japan, to Europe, to America. There is a whole section on terminology used for herbal teas, how to grow, cultivate, harvest, dry and store them.

Adagio Teas : Cranberry Flavored Black Tea Review

It Neither Smells Nor Tastes of Cranberries

Summary : If you like cranberries and cranberry tea, I have some good news for you...spend your money on something else, as this one is sure to displease.

Review : Wisconsin, besides being the land of the cheeseheads and Packer fanatics, is also one of the primary growers of those lovely little fruits called cranberries. And well, since I found myself in Wisconsin over the Christmas-New Years period, it just seemed fitting to try out the "holiday tea" from Adagio Teas that has the rather deceptive name of Cranberry Flavored Black Tea.

Cranberry Flavored Black Tea Leaves

Now admittedly, cranberries aren't my favorite fruit on this green earth. But I've liked plenty of other cranberry teas, so I sort of figured I would enjoy this one as well.

Here is how Adagio Teas describes this tea on their website : "Premium black tea from Sri Lanka flavored with sweet, tangy cranberries. This delicious autumn delight is a great complement to your next turkey feast, which your guests are sure to gobble down. Please give this limited-time tea a try-- your teacups will give thanks!"

Now normally, Adagio is pretty straight forward in describing their teas, lofty language and all. Well, all I can say is...back to the drawing board on describing this miserable tea.

Well, where to begin. How about serving this tea with a Turkey dinner? Um....only serve this tea with your immaculately prepared Turkey if you don't like your house guests...after drinking this tea you'll likely soon see your guests head for the door.

Sadly, though...the tea once brewed basically has little flavor of cranberries and, all too typically, a way too strong taste of black tea...complete with bitterness and all.

Overall, I was disappointed in this tea...mainly due to any lack of any real cranberry flavor, despite the little dried up cranberries in the tea itself. I'll give Adagio credit for trying something new. But to my taste buds, this tea is best left at the store or on a forgotten about kitchen shelf.

Recommendation : No. If you like cranberry teas, you definitely won't like this one, as there is very little cranberry taste at all.
