I am always one for more black currant-flavoured food and drink, and so this blend's balance of currant and black tea feels rather satisfying. Equally, the occasional note of black raspberry only empowers the fruity feeling, making this tea rather light and palatable. That said, if allowed to steep for longer periods of time, the fruitiness will fade, weakening the tea's appeal. Finding the right amount of time to steep it at for one's palate, then, is essential before forming an opinion for oneself. I would recommend this tea as a general use tea, good any time of the day, though I personally found it most enjoyable later at night.
This tea is definitely among my favorites! It’s rich fruity flavor is perfect for almost any occasion. I enjoy it with a little bit of lemon. It has just the right amount of caffeine to give me “that step” to last through the day. You can’t go wrong with black currant!
This was on my list of teas to try for months! Really glad I signed up for email alerts because this has quickly become one of my favorites. It's quite fruity and greeny fresh without being bitter. I drink it without any additions. Give this tea a try if you like earl grey or berry basket. Strong flavor.
