Put differently: currant's make for a polite house guest, one well suited to the clear, uncomplicated pleasures that a clean black tea has to offer. China black pairs and pairs and pairs. There's none that could accuse it of requiring a delicate partnership (like, say, the viscous, bushy Rooibos family) or of tending to dominate no matter what (looking at you, matchas). While those qualities make for their own unique rewards and fascinating blends; there's still a place firmly embedded in the heart of every tea lover for the elegance of a one-flavored black. And thus, here we have Black Currant. Dare we say that it's what you get the tea lover who has everything? Full bodied with a berry-true currant flavor; this is the sort of tea that one lets rest on their tongue or even (after checking to ensure clear surroundings) swirls a bit in the cooler later-cup
This is now my favorite black tea and especially love it as iced tea.
A marvelous blend of fragrant goodness. I had it for the first time today. It soothed and calmed me as our country continues to suffer. For a brief few moments—your tea took me away! Many thanks! I’ll try and take a picture tomorrow as I look a bit, hummm, disheveled right now! Warm regards, Laura Pizzicara
