You can use sugar or equal. Keeps in refrigerator and heat as you want. This is sweet and tangy.

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. Read More

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

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. Read More

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) Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

This was very good. A nice change especially on a very cold day. My husband liked it better with vodka though. Read More
