45 Tasting Notes
I have to say, I’m not really tasting the blackcurrant.
There’s a small hint of it in there, somewhere. At least the aroma is full and very blackcurrant-y. I’m definitely tasting the tea over whatever flavoring is supposed to be here. Perhaps I steeped it for too long – 2-4 was the recommended. I did 3. Perhaps I steeped too little.
It’s still a pretty nice tea! A while after taking a sip, you start to taste the blackcurrant. I just wish it was present in the sip itself.
It smells just like apple pie! It’s uncanny, yet delicious at the same time.
The taste, however, is a lot more subdued. It’s a bit of an abrupt change. You can definitely taste the tea (this is a blend of two green teas and two black teas, but I mostly taste the black) more than the flavorings (flavored with apple bits, cinnamon and “aromas”). I’m not quite sure what to think of this, but it’s really good if you don’t like overpowering sweetness. I can imagine this going very well with something sweet (like – dare I say it? – apple pie).
This is an excellent tea for the price (I paid only 3€ for 100 grams), although I do believe that it’s only really available during the winter. Shame.
