drank Black Currant by Tea Forte
174 tasting notes

Back-logged from this morning.

I’m not a big fan of black teas needless to say, but this was in a sampler pack I had received and gave it a go. To my surprise this wasn’t too bad. It’s pretty fruity without being tart. I could taste the black tea, but the black currant was strong enough that it made it pleasant for me.

It’s hard to find a good fruit tea that’s not so tart it makes your tongue wrinkle! I like this one, too.

Profile

Bio

I’m an avid tea drinker, it’s what I drink all day and why I’m here. I don’t sweeten my teas except for the occasional iced tea or cold-brewed tea. I typically brew my teas with a brew basket in a 12 oz cup. If I brew another way I will always note it.

Dislikes: black teas, milk flavored oolongs, hibiscus, red rooibos, licorice, dessert teas, mate, guayusa.

Loves: straight teas, especially Chinese green teas, sencha, jasmine, dan congs, mint, coconut.

My ratings are based mostly on the smiley faces. If a tea is of good quality but not to my taste preference I try not to rate it because I think that is unfair.

I drink a lot of the same teas and will not record every time I drink them. I log them the first time I try them and then again if I did something different and/or got different results.

I also try to keep my cupboard updated to what I actually have for those that wish to swap, although some of them are merely samples.
