Confession: My first tea love, back in high school, was Twinings Blackcurrent. I hadn’t realized it, but my taste buds were hoping for that again here. Well, they didn’t get it, but that could be good or bad depending on your taste. Looking for something that doesn’t hit you over the head with the fruity flavor? This is it. Maybe you prefer a more basic black tea with just a hint of fruit? This is it too. The tea base itself is an odd duck – lighter in flavor, kind of thin, but quite tannic. Not a combination I love personally.
