This tea was packaged in a silky pyramid tea bag and is part of the Holiday Cheer Gourmet Tea Collection. I was skeptical about trying it because I'm not a big fan of cranberries. I hate their mouth puckering sourness. I was happy to find that it was more on the sweet side than bitter. There was just enough astringency to lend a crisp tartness. The base black tea added complimentary notes of chocolate and nuts. While a relatively mild cup, it was still very enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this tea.
