When Peet’s Coffee quit making their black current tea, I was devastated. I tried Tea Forte’s at a local cafe and was filled with excitement. Yours is the closest I’ve found and I’ve been a happy camper ever since. Even introduced it at a “bring your favorite tea” tea party. Just wish it wasn’t so popular! Hard to wait when I’m out and so are you!
Black currant tea is my favorite among the various teas that I've ever ordered. I really enjoy the rich, smooth and fruity flavor that leads to a long, fragrant aftertaste in my mouth. I share the tea with my friends and family. Everybody just loves it.
Growing up, Black Currant tea was my favorite, but over time it has become harder to find. When I do find it, it has odd flavorings added, like vanilla. Tea Forte's Black Currant tea actually tastes like the tea of my youth. Fruity but not sweet, delicious hot or iced.
I am a die hard black tea drinker and was hesitant to try a fruity tea. Well to my surprise this tea is the perfect blend of a more traditional black tea with hints of black current. I just love this tea and buy it in bulk quantities because now I'm addicted !
