This one is kind of hard to explain. Even with the robust flavoring it was not overwhelming nor sweet. I have never had black current so keep that in mind but I do like this – its very earthy and has almost an incense taste to it. Yet its not bitter at all. I am surprised by this one!
I think I expected it to be sweeter with more of a berry type flavor but its more like a grape but not really. Its very adult flavored would make an excellent wine out of currants I think. Maybe they do make wine out of currants. Now I need to find some to try on their own to get a better idea of what I should be tasting here in this matcha but for someone with absolutely no experience with currants other than in tea, and I’m usually pretty befuddled by it – yet always enjoy it – this is down right good.
I have a ton of candy like matcha and berry, citrus, etc but this stands on its own as a more earthy type of flavor. I did not add any sugar yet it has this very nice sweetness with a slight bite at the end – not bitter but sort of a tart essence that makes my mouth water just ever so slightly.
Wow this has been the hardest review for me to do so far just because I am so intrigued by this flavor. It does not even have to grow on me, I am a fan! The aroma from the dry form was a little on the chemical smelling side but it does not come though in the end result at all.

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/

I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
