"A sentimental favorite. My mother and I made it when I was 7 and it's been a part of our holiday tradition ever since. A fun recipe to make with the kids. A slow cooker will keep it warm while serving." — TERRAMISU

Easy to make and very tasty. A nice change from drinking coffee all night! It was a little to sweet for my taste, so I will cut back on the sugar the next time I make this. I added club soda to my second cup and it added a nice fizziness and helped cut the sweetness. Defintely a keeper.
Delicious! Is a beautiful rosey color which is very attractive! I strained the leftovers and refrigerated it. Delicious cold, and I think the flavor of the spices came through a little better the 2nd day. A keeper!!
The flavors in this "tea" are just wonderful, not too sweet, not too tart. Perfect for sipping by the fire with your family on cold winter evenings. My family already loves it, and wants it part of our winter traditions.
This is wonderful. This will become a regular at our house. My husband can't get enough of it. Thanks for a great recipe.
Tried this for the first time for a christmas gathering and it was a great hit. I will follow the recipe closer next time though -- I tried to stretch it by adding 4 qts. of water instead of 3. I ended up adding more juice than called for, orange, lemon and lime (since that's what I had on hand). It was good, but not as strong of a cranberry taste as I would have liked. Have already passed on the recipe to several others.
My kids loved it!
I am one of four siblings of Terra who posted the recipe :-) It was my Great Grandmothers. My mom would often try different sweetening methods, like adding 1c honey or 1/2c sugar and 1c honey. Its all good anyway you make it. I would have added to strain the cranberries so that it is smooth.
I've tried a couple of these cranberry tea recipes on here, and this is my favorite. It's more about the cranberry, and less about the other juices. It smells like Christmas, and I like the clearer red color! I cut the sugar down to 1 cup, and then add a couple of teaspoons of sugar to one large mug, to taste.
