Uses For Cranberry Blend Teas


Cranberries are by far one of my favorite food items. Alone they can be bitter and sour, but properly mixed with the correct flavor elements, they can be a delightful and sweet delicacy. It’s no wonder why I love cranberry tea so much. As I sit here, head cold sending me into sneezing fits every five minutes, I’m sipping on Blood Orange and Cranberry Tea with Lemon. When I lift the cup to my nose, It helps immediately to waken my senses. It’s fresh and inviting, with a tangy and quick taste. Unsweetened is how I like it when sick. I feel like it does it’s job best. Below are a few things I feel are the incredible aids that cranberries can give to a consumer.

  • Cranberries are full of Vitamin C, Potassium, and Beta Carotene
  • They help flush vital organs that lend help to our Urinary Tract, like Kidneys, Bladder and Liver.
  • They help dispel excess water and flush it out through our Urinary Tract. This aids in reduced bloating, especially during a women’s monthlies.
  • They are full of antioxidants and can help fight illness, disease and cancer.
  • Cranberries are proven to help reduce cholesterol.
  • They can be stored for months in the cold if picked at the peak of freshness.
  • They accent most dishes with a pop of color and tangy taste.
  • I love Cranberry salad or as some know it, Cranberry Dressing. And not at all the kind from the can. I prefer to make my cranberry dressing from scratch.

Here is a simple recipe for cranberry dressing that takes only a few minutes to make. It’s delicious during all seasons, hot or cold, so make it often!

What You Need:


  • 1 (12 Ounce) bag of fresh cranberries
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • 1/2 Cup water
  • 1/4 Cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 Cup orange Juice (WITH PULP)
  • 1 TBSP grated Orange Peel

Wash your cranberries. In a large sauce pan, heat your water, juices and sugar over medium heat until it begins to bubble slightly. Add your cranberries and mix until well blended. Boil for 5 minutes until the cranberries begin to pop open. Then toss in your orange peel. Keep stirring while it boils for another 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool while covered for 5 minutes. Then you may chill or serve warm.
