This tea was packaged in a silk pyramid style tea bag. I was prepared to not like this tea since cranberry and lemon are probably my two least favorite flavors. I was really surprised with how much I liked it. The black tea was very mellow as was the cranberry-like flavor of the hibiscus. The lemon grass and lemon flavor provided a nice bit of citrus zing. The flavoring was very natural tasting and wasn’t over the top. There was just a bit of astringency, enough to give that mouth puckering feeling you would expect from cranberry. I would definitely recommend this tea.
