Cranberry tea can take on many forms other than being served up hot on its own.
First will talk about cranberry herbal tea on its own.
Cranberry Herbal Tea and Cranberry Spiced Tea are holiday and Christmas favorites. If you have ever had cranberry herbal tea on a cold winter day, you will likely remember it fondly. Adagio Teas offers a wide variety of cranberry infused teas if you don’t want to blend your own tea.
Made with fresh cranberries, big batches of spiced cranberry herbal tea are a tradition with some families. Here is my favorite recipe:
Traditional Cranberry Herbal Tea Recipe
- 1 package of fresh cranberries
- 3 quarts of water
- 2 cups of sugar
- Juice of 2 Oranges

- 12 Cloves
- 2 Sticks of Cinnamon
Put the cranberries and water into a pot and bring to a boil, simmer for 30 minutes. Ad all other ingredients and steep for 1 hour or longer.
Re heat to serve. Your family will love it.
