i know why MissB sent this to me. 1) not a caramel note in sight. 2) the smell!!!!!! wowza! the name is totally accurate too.
when i was a kid my gran would have a tin of cassis sucking candies in her mammoth sized purse…. opening the tin smelled just like this blend! juicy, tangy, robust, intriguing! a hint of astringency from the assam which is the perfect compliment to the black currant. i genuinely do get a sense of juiciness.
nice balance. definitely drinking a tea vs juice…. very nice. this blend makes me happy. i’ve had a number of ‘meh’ experiences lately. this was not one of them!!
thank you MissB!
