Steep Information:
Amount: 2 tsp
Water: 2 zarafina cups filtered water
Tool: Zarafina white-loose-medium
Served: Hot

Tasting Notes:
Dry Leaf Smell: sweet and fruity (MilitiaJim confirms the fruity is current, I don’t know what currant smells like)
Steeped Tea Smell: sweet, fruity, leafy
Flavor: slightly bitter, leafy, fruity
Body: Light
Aftertaste: bitter, fruity
Liquor: translucent yellow-green-brown

Per all the tasting notes on Steepster I should try this iced.

It smells better than it tastes to me. It is a good cup of tea but I don’t see myself craving it.

Post-Steep Additives: none

Resteep: Zarafina white-loose-medium
less bitter than the first steep, a tad weaker

I’ve read all the good reviews about having this iced, but what exactly do black currants taste like? Are they tart like raspberries, sweet like strawberries? Are they comparable to any other fruit?

AmazonV

to me it was this generic sweet almost sweet strawberry-blueberry kinda taste, never had a currant before so that’s as close as i can compare it’s this sweet berry followed by a little tart that might be the white tea and not the fruit? hmm maybe i need to get some currants

Erin

hmm, okay thanks! i need to be on the lookout for teas that would be good iced!

I am The Devotea USA. I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).

~~~~~~~~*~
0-25=Bleh! not again if it were free
25-50=Acceptable, if it were free or there were limited other tea options
50-75=I might purchase this tea from time to time, or select it while out
75-100=A staple in our cupboard from now on, I will purchase and keep purchasing
