drank Black Currant by A Southern Season
60 tasting notes

The dry tea smells like grape jelly when you open the bag. It looks like black teas with some green leaves. I used just boiling water and steeped for 5 minutes. Once brewed the grape smell is not as intense and the tea notes start to come out more. My first cup was without sugar and was smooth and had a subtle grape flavor. I tried to single out other flavors besides grape and, well, tea, but I couldn’t. The second cup I added sugar and besides being sweeter I couldn’t tell much difference.

Bio

Grew up in Texas, lived and worked in Australia and New Zealand for a year. Now I am back stateside and living in Oregon. I drink most any kind of tea but blacks are my favorites.

“Tea is the taste of my land: it is bitter and warm, strong, and sharp with memory. It tastes of longing. It tastes of the distance between where you are and where you come from. Also it vanishes—the taste of it vanishes from your tongue while your lips are still hot from the cup. It disappears, like plantations stretching up into the mist.” Little Bee (Chris Cleave)
