drank Currant Affair by DAVIDsTEA
906 tasting notes

Backlog – I picked up about 30g of this when I went to DavidsTea this past Friday to buy my bf the new pumpkin mug :D love how it changes color btw! So yes, I had to try this, because I enjoy rooibos and the black currant tea I’ve tried from another company was very good.

This one didn’t disappoint – an amazing smell and taste! The creaminess added nicely to the berry like flavor (or whatever currant flavoring taste like lol, I find the actual ones to be quite bitter) and the rooibos is a nice base. This is probably up in the higher range of my favorite red rooibos teas, up there with Lemon Chiffon and the various rooibos de provence blends I’ve tried (which also contain currants). Nicely done! I will drink this down rather quickly I imagine!

I’m glad you liked it – if it compares to Lemon Chiffon it must be something! I’m planning to grab 20g when I get a chance.

Oooh! Pumpkin mug! :P

I’ve been wanting to try that.

Haha well, it’s in the top 3 for red rooibos for me I think, be warned, my mom thought it smelled like cough medicine haha. Lemon Chiffon still takes the cake for the best, but I enjoy the curranty-ness of this one! And the mug is soo cute! I love that the faces light up orange, it makes my day :)

Hello all, I’m a newly graduated electrical engineer as of 2013 (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it’s excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte haha)

I enjoy a variety of herbal, white, green, oolong and black teas. I have also tried a few pu’erhs and matcha I am a bit sensitive to caffeine, but I find that in moderation I can still indulge in black teas and matcha.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I recently tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.

95+: Absolute favorite, will try to always have it in stock, and when I don’t I pine over it!
90-94: Awesome teas, will probably purchase again a few times
80-89: Very good tea, may restock at some point
70-79: happy to have tried and will gladly finish, but not restock
60-69: not horrible, but not the best, will finish if I have some though
50-59: not a favorite, probably will have a tough time finishing the bag
-50: yuck. I don’t want to have it ever again.

I am happy to say that my caffeine intolerance seems to be subsiding! This is allowing me to try a wider variety of teas :)
