I love, love, love this tea! This is my go-to tea first thing in the morning at work, so I drink it four times a week with two packets of raw sugar. Hot or room-temp, I will drink every last drop of this tea. I can’t really say I’ve ever had black currants (at least not in a way where I could distinguish and describe their specific flavor), but this tea definitely doesn’t taste like your average berry-flavored tea. The fruitiness is subtle and this tea has that lovely Twinings black tea base.
