Love me some H & S on a lousy winter weather morning… This one is pleasant enough, though I generally avoid berry-flavored black teas (I think berry flavoring goes better in herbal tisanes, or green tea sometimes). I used one of the silk sachets to make this cuppa.
It’s perfumey and a little metallic-smelling, and steeps an orangey-brown colored liquor.
As per usual with H & S blends, the black tea base is high-quality and rich. It tastes better than it smells— sweet, but in the organic, natural, non-cloying way that actual currants taste. Leaves a pleasant aftertaste.
Probably wouldn’t purchase a whole tin of this, but it’s not bad.
Flavors: Berries, Black Currant, Fruity, Metallic, Perfume
