Cranberry Creme Black from 52Teas

Tea Information: Leaf Type:  Black Where to Buy: 52Teas Tea Description: I wanted to create a cranberry flavored black tea – but I didn’t want to go for a straightforward cranberry black tea because that’s been done. At first, I was going to go with a cranberry custard pie flavor but my initial taste tests of that blend proved to be underwhelming.

It’s tasty! Learn more Read More
