This is a sample I got from Upton Tea Imports a while back but I haven’t had the opportunity to try it yet.

I steeped this for around 4 minutes in the infuser mug and added some soymilk. This is not the fruitiest blackcurrant tea I’ve ever had, unfortunately. The black tea base is nice (a Ceylon, I think??) and the fruitiness is very light, it’s currant-y with a bit of tart thrown in for good measure. I wish Harney and Sons made a decaf version of their blackcurrant tea. This isn’t too bad but doesn’t have the punch I was really looking for.

The lack of punch, sadly-is the norm for many decaffeinated teas.

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it
