This recipe is from the BH&G cookbook. I thought this was a nice drink. Great in the summertime. Garnish with mint in the summer, or fresh cranberries during the holidays. Cook time is chill time.

I really enjoyed this tea and did not find it to tart. I used Lipton Green Tea, Bigelow Plantation Mint Tea, and Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice Cocktail when I made mine. I will make this again! Made for *Comfort Cafe Summer 2009* game my theme was *Teas Made With Fruit Juices*

I have made this twice for dinner parties. The first time I made it, I used half apple juice and half cranberry juice. Everyone loved it and the quadrupled batch was gone quickly. The second time I made it I used all cranberry juice. It was tart, a bit more tart than cranberry juice by itself with some “tea� aftertaste. Without the apple juice it wasn’t as popular. No one wanted seconds. I’ll probably make this again, but I’ll always use half apple juice.

This is a nice refreshing drink. I am always on the look out for teas that do not need any sugar added. I think I will try this one with a cran-apple juice next time or perhaps add some honey while it is still hot. Thanks for posting it.
