Our Sister’s Thoughts:
I realize that Cranberry and Squash Tea from Handmade Tea was from their November 2015 offerings but I thought it was a fun way to introduce one of many new #hastags we are introducing here at Sororitea Sisters. Soon – you will see which new hashtags we will be doing and if you feel compelled to jump in please do so on your choice of social media!
#MusicAndTeaMonday: Cranberry and Squash Tea from Handmade Tea is today’s featured tea.
After chatting with fellow Sororitea Sister Nichole and finding out not only do her and I share the same birth year – we share the same birth month as well. I did a bit of word association with this tea. Squash = Pumpkin…Smashing Pumpkins…YAY! I was always a fan of The Smashing Pumpkins! Therefore I thought this would be fitting for #MusicAndTeaMonday: Cranberry and Squash Tea from Handmade Tea.
Cranberry and Squash Tea from Handmade Tea offers a sweet and tart flavor combo along side a sturdy black tea base. My favorite part of this tea is that you can clearly see the ingredients. Large chunks of cranberries and squash! There is an earthy end sip that lasts on to the aftertaste. I think more companies should incorporate squash into their teas! Won’t you join us for #MusicAndTeaMonday? Remember to use that hashtag as well as #sororiteasisters on your social media of choice!

The Scoop on this Cuppa. . . .
Leaf Type: Black Tea
Where to Buy: Handmade Tea
Cranberry and Squash begins with a smooth and creamy black tea base from the Fujian province in Southeastern China. Next, dried cranberry pieces get added to the mix. This adds tart and sweet notes to the blend. The sweet notes of the berries nicely complement the base tea. Finally, fresh dried Butternut Squash gets blended in for an earthy rich flavor that harmonizes beautifully with the sweet notes from our cranberries.
