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.
If you would like a tea with a little natural sweetness, then this tea is a good choice.
I prefer my teas black and this little gem is delicious hot or chilled.
Your observations about Black Currant are spot on! It certainly is a gem, naturally sweet and soooo delicious!
This tea has become another entry on my "go-to" list. This tea has a great aroma. Hot or cold, it tastes really good. I have to be careful about steeping or sunning too long, as it will become bitter. Aside from that, I recommend trying it.
Thanks for your review of Black Currant. It has been a 'come from behind' favorite in the past months. It's flavor is fabulous! Sip on!
Thankyou for your samples....that's how I came across this tea!!! I love them all but this one is my favorite now, and I read that black Currant is healthy for you, too. Thanks for your teas, your samples, and the quick deliveries! All the way from California...... Terry
