I love this tea! It is absolutely my favorite tea ever.

Perfectly balanced - my favorite tea!

It's not too sweet, and never bitter - even when a bit over-steeped. It reminds me of the time I spent in Stockholm, and the great blackcurrant products that could be had there.

Nice, but not my taste

I get why this is popular. It's a nice delicate black tea, and the currant taste is interesting. Unfortunately, It's just not a flavor that appeals to me. I find it a little too lightly flavored to maintain it's enjoyability through a whole cup; the sweetness overwhelms the rest of the flavor and by the time I finish a cup that all I can taste. It's a nice tea, and I recommend it to people who like fruity teas, but I won't be buying it again.

Best black currant tea I have tasted

My headline says it all. If you love black currant tea, you should purchase this because it is fantastic tasting.

Black Currant was one of the teas I first started drinking when I started to try something other than Lipton's. I have been in search of a good one ever since and been really, really, many times really disappointed. Most smell like cat spray and taste about as bad. This is wonderful! Sweet and juicy and just absolutely perfect - better, even, than I remember.

Snuggle with your spouse!

I dare anyone to start an argument while sipping this lovely tea! My husband and I snuggle on the sofa and chat about the day while we savor the warm sweet flavors of the Black Currant Tea.

Great Tea Great Company

I've been a fan of Tea Forte Black Currant Tea for many years. As a matter of fact, this is the only tea I drink. I have tried other Tea Forte teas which are excellent but I find the flavor of the Black Currant tea has a very special flavor unlike any other. Capt. Jack

The Best Tea Forte Has To Offer!

I have enjoyed this tea for the last two years. I purchased it in a sampler, and it was my favorite. A great afternoon pick-me-up on a cold day!

"Brews to a full-bodied, flavorful cup"

"This tea brews to a full-bodied, flavorful cup that is nicely aromatic – a delicate, fruity scent – and lightly sweet. The berry flavor is adequately balanced with the black tea flavor – which is bold yet smooth, offering just a hint of dry astringency. There is no bitterness to this coppery cup of goodness."

Best Tea By Far...

This is the best tea, period. I love the richness of the flavor, the great aroma, the wonderful sweetness with a bit of milk and sugar. An amazing tea that you will quickly become hooked on. My favorite tea to give as a gift.

This is my favirite Tea Forte tea

This is my favirite Tea Forte tea. I first tried it about 3 years ago and have been purchasing it ever since. It has such a great natural sweetness that you don't need sugar. I also love the subtle fruity taste.

Black Currant medley

We've been drinking this black currant since last fall when we had it at an inn in the Berkshires. I highly recommend it. Very fruity, complex. Definitely more than black currant in there. Milk & sugar really make this a treat!
