Cranberry Autumn
Our Cranberry Autumn is a delicious blend of black teas from China & India with dried cranberries, oranges & cranberry flavoring. Michael Harney came up with this blend as an homage to warm memories of autumn meals made by his father, Master Tea Blender John Harney. Our Cranberry Autumn is available in seasonal tins as a loose tea in a 4 ounce tin, and in a tagalong tin with 5 sachets. Also available, but not in the festive tin, is loose tea by the pound, 7 ounce tin, and a bulk bag of 50 sachets.


  1. Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all. ~Stanley Horowitz

    Autumn & Spring..My favorite times of the year!

  2. Besides the autumn poets sing,
    A few prosaic days
    A little this side of the snow
    And that side of the haze.
    ~Emily Dickinson

    Oh how I LOVE Autumn!

  3. "The hazy, cloudless skies of Indian Summer. Leaves scurrying down the street before the wind. The cold shiver from an arctic blast. Indian Summer. The last warmth of the sun. Chilly mornings and glorious warm afternoons. The Harvest Moon. The Hunter's Moon. The Rainy Season. Dry corn stalks clattering in the wind. The touch of frost on grass and window pane. The smell of burning leaves."
    - Keith C. Heidorn

  4. October gave a party,
    the leaves by hundreds came,
    the Chestnuts, Oaks and Maples,
    and leaves of every name.
    The sunshine spread a carpet,
    and everything was grand,
    Miss Weather led the dancing,
    Professor Wind the band.

    From "October's Party" by George Cooper

  5. No Spring nor Summer Beauty hath such grace
    As I have seen in one Autumnal face.
    - John Donne

  6. "Delicious Autumn!
    My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns."
    George Eliot

    And spreads a common feast for all that live."
    - James Thomson

  11. I do not have a famous quote but one of my own.

  12. Yummy....I LOOOOVE ANYTHING "Cranberry" especially teas and breads and...never mind. I like it all.

    Here's me favorite quote....(yes that was a pirate voice, I'm in a weird mood)

    "Bittersweet October. The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking, perfect pause between the opposing miseries of summer and winter.

    I REALLY do love's my favorite season. And I was married in October and now Miss Priss is to be married in October AND her birthday is in October....lovely month.

  13. Being a grandmother of one with another due any day, this particularly touched my heart.

    The smile that flickers on baby's lips when he sleeps- does anybody know where it was borne? Yes, there is a rumor that a young pale beam of a crescent moon touched the edge of a vanishing autumn cloud, and there the smile was first born . . . .
    - Rabindranath Tagore

  14. One of my favourite quotes for this time of year is:

    Autumn is a second Spring when every leaf is a flower.

    ~Albert Camus

    Such a delightful giveaway you're having! SusieQ at Rabbit Run Cottage sent me over here:-) I will announce your giveaway on my post tomorrow morning!! xo

  15. Every leaf speaks bliss to me,
    Fluttering from the autumn tree.
    Emily Bronte

  16. This Quote gives me a smile on my face along with the desire to have fun with a friend: Which to me is a tea party.. doesn't it seem to go along with getting together with a good friend; Party time? Or an Anne of Green Gables moment?

    "Come said the wind to
    the leaves one day,
    Come o're the meadows
    and we will play.
    Put on your dresses
    scarlet and gold,
    For summer is gone
    and the days grow cold.

  17. I stopped by via Ms Pea.
    I don't have a quote right off the top of my head, but I truly love autumn. It is a time of so much color. I like to drive around and see the changing colors of the hills.
    I hope to stop by again if you don't mind.

  18. Atumn is such an insightful season!

    Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~George Eliot

    I love tea, especially in the autumn and winter!

  19. It was autumn, and incessant/Piped the quails from shocks and sheaves/And, like living coals, the apples/Burned among the withering leaves. -Longfellow

  20. I've always loved the autumn weather so I really like this Nathanial Nathaniel Hawthorne quote:

    "I cannot endure to waste anything as precious as autumn sunshine by staying in the house. So I spend almost all the daylight hours in the open air."

    The cranberry autumn tea sounds divine! I have never had a Harney and Sons tea before (and I'm a tea lover) but I would love to give it a try. Thank you so much for the great giveaway!


Thanks for stopping by!
