drank Black Currant Bai Mu Dan by 52teas
1195 tasting notes

I just watched a really interesting documentary called Objectified. If you have Netflix Instant, it’s only available for another week. It’s about how design has come along and now I am looking at everything wondering why it looks the way it does. Like, I never even considered before…digital cameras don’t use film, so why do we keep them the same rectangular shape as 35mm cameras? I suppose the back display looks all proper then, but you could still place a rectangular screen on an object of a different shape…interesting stuff.

I brewed this earlier and left it in the fridge while my ice maker worked out whatever its little problem was, and I must say this could be in one of my future 52teas orders. I think I have only had currants once, and it was on a pastry that was mostly made up of green tea mousse. So, I really love the flavor of tea and currants, and I think they work better with white than green teas. I have another white tea with currant flavoring but I far prefer this.

It’s sweet enough, but I suppose adding a little sweetener could really crank up the berry flavor. I like it just like it is. It’s a nice mix of white tea and black currant flavor, and it tastes just like those real berries did on the mousse…unlike my other tea.

Thanks, Kittenna!
