drank Black Currant by Harney & Sons
93 tasting notes

Tea #12 from Traveling Tea Box C


The dry leaf has a very sweet smell, so I was feeling pretty optimistic about this tea. I haven’t had much luck with other currant teas. The flavor is quite strong, and a bit tart. This tastes like a pretty typical flavored black tea from H&S (most of which I enjoy quite a bit), so I’m starting to think the problem is that I don’t really like currants.

I can definitely recognize why people would like this tea, so it earned quite a few points there, but lost some for not being as well balanced as other H&S flavored black teas.

Boiling 2 min, 30 sec
