A black currant is a very small fruit that packs a big nutritional punch.

A cup of tea made with black currants delivers a generous serving of vitamin C that may stave off colds and infections.

Consider all those things plus the fact that a cup of fruit-scented Tea Forté tea is soothing, fragrant and delicious, and you truly have a winning combination.
