From Republic of Tea

Merry and bright herb tea. Naturally caffeine-free blend of hibiscus blossoms, cranberries and spices.
These tart cranberries are blended with sweet hibiscus to create a cup that finishes with warm holiday spices of cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, clove and star anise.
Pour 6 oz of freshly boiled water per serving over the teabag and infuse for 5 to 7 minutes. For iced tea, double the amount of teabags used and pour over a generous amount of ice.

I got this as part of a 3-tin stack of seasonal blends including Hot Apple Cider and Pumpkin Spice. In the stack, this one is called Hibiscus Cranberry, but it’s the same tea as Cranberry Spice Hibiscus. Idk what’s up with that.

The dry bag smells like hibiscus and cranberry with spices. Aroma is strong cranberry spice, like Yankee Candle levels. One small cup permeates my entire living room. I do not object. The taste is exactly as advertised in the name – cranberry and hibiscus foremost with a light spice flavor underneath. I can’t pick out individual spices. The dark berry red tea is drying and very tart. I like hibiscus but this one is so tart it gives me reflux which I rarely get. Very glad there are only 12 bags per tin because this one is kind of brutal. Definitely won’t be looking for Hibiscus Cranberry next season.

I’ve never tried it with a spiced hibi blend, but cold-steeping hibi in lemonade can work wonders on the tartest of hibi blends, since the lemonade adds a counter-balancing sweetness. The citrus is a nice accompanying flavor and I find it kind of tastes like raspberry lemonade afterwards.

I was going to cold brew the remainder so I will take this suggestion into consideration. Thanks.

I cold brewed 3 bags to a liter overnight and the flavors are so intense it’s like drinking a candle. Wtf. If Cranberry Hibiscus doesn’t play nice cold brewed in lemonade, this tin is going on the community table in the lobby.

I’ve had some oddly surprising results with it, which is why even during winter I tend to keep at least one cheap lemonade concentrate in my freezer, heh.

I like this tea, and am sorry to have come to the end of this tin. I did indeed find it a “merry and bright herb tea”, as per The Republic of Tea’s label. First of all, I am a hibiscus tea lover, so those of you who are not, can leave now. (You’re out there in vocal droves. This doesn’t concern you, haters—this review is for those of us who love it.)
This tea has a nice depth to its flavor. The natural bitterness of cranberries has been nicely alleviated by the sweetness in the hibiscus and spices. I made this cup without sugar or honey, so I could taste it honestly by itself. It’s got a nice, clean flavor, very strong and direct, yet mellow.
I like to blend a bag or two of this with other herbal teas, particularly those with orange and/or spices. It is perfect for the holiday season in both taste and its nice bright red color.

This tastes like Christmas in a cup. Cranberry, cinnamon, and something floral. It’s maybe a bit artificial tasting and reminds me of potpourri or a candle, but not in a bad way. I like that it actually tastes like cranberry more than Hibiscus unlike several cranberry teas I’ve had before. I’d buy this again, especially around Christmas time.

Not bad for a red tea. Usually I find the hibiscus flavor overpowering, but the addition of cranberry and spices makes this a pretty nice decaf cup. I would buy this again in small quantities.
