Delicious! Could be called "Cranberry Cherry Tea" since the flavor of the cherry gelatin really comes through. I have been drinking it both hot and cold, both ways are equally good. I added the 1/2 cup sugar when I stirred in the cherry gelatin so the sugar would melt easier, rather than adding it at the end.

A little too sweet. Maybe leave out the added sugar?

Absolutely love this. I would rather have this than coffee or tea on any of our cold minnesota winter days!! Thanks sooo much for submitting this one. (I like to use a coffee filter to steep the spices in it. It works great)

Just made the Cranberry Tea for the Holiday Open House at my antique store. It was such a hit. My customers loved it and a few are returning to get a copy of the recipe. I made each batch of tea for 20 servings but reduced the amount of sugar. Perfect served warm with an assortment of mini pastries.

This is the best - everyone LOVED it! Added the sugar while the mixture was still hot, but otherwise followed the recipe precisely. Kept it warm in a crock pot.

I made this recipe for 80 plus people and almost everyone raved about it. I think it was a bit too sweet and I may cut down a tad on the sugar, but overall VERY good!
