Georgia Tea Company nails the black currant flavor on this tea … and I like that it doesn’t overpower the flavor of the rich black tea base. A moderate astringency. Tangy and slightly sweet with hints of raisin.
Not an artificial currant flavor, it has that tart flavor that I’d expect from a currant tea. I’m not usually a big fan of tart, but, this IS a black currant tea, so I expected it here, and it isn’t too much. Somewhat reminiscent of wine. Nice.
