Information:
Red Currants, (Latin: Ribes rubrum), are one of nature’s hardiest berries. The perennial plant is by nature deciduous and will grow just about anywhere. In fact, no special fertilization is required to induce the plants to produce their fruit. It is as though the plant simply wills itself to live! Perhaps this is why historically in Ireland on All Hallow’s Eve, (which we now know as Halloween), in an effort to ward off the grim claws of death, people went door to door in costume asking for buns made with red currants. Nowadays the berry is a favorite for making jams, jellies, and wine due to its tart flavor profile. The astringency of the berry also makes it a natural when paired with our high grown Ceylon tea. Brew a pot today and raise a cup to life!

I prefer black currant as a flavor to red. This has a touch of sour that currants can have. The black currants have a richer, fruity taste I love. It’s an okay tea, it needed sugar to enjoy. The tea base was decent.
