From London Fruit & Herb Teas

A bold and fruity combination of green tea, fruit and herbs with a burst of sweet blackcurrants

Due to pioneering technology, their teas contain real concentrated fruit juices. Bursting with fruit flavor, these blends really taste as good as they smell. This line comes in a wide selection of flavors, including variety packs for multiple flavor sampling. London Fruit and Herb Company herbal and fruit tea offerings are caffeine-free and gluten-free.

The green tea blends break new ground in this popular category. These are not flavored green teas—rather they are an artfully balanced mixture of real fruits and herbs that are then blended together with select green tea. The result is the full flavor of an herbal; with all the healthy goodness of green tea

Ingredients: Green Tea (36%), Hibiscus, Blackberry Leaves and Flavorings, Licorice Root, Blackcurrant Juice (3.4%), Blackcurrant Pulp (2%).

Please Note: These packaged herbal and fruit tea items are manufactured in England. For distribution in the Unites States, a generic “Best Before End of” date is required to be stamped on each box. Unlike a spoilable food product, these dry, herbal products will taste great long after the date on the box passes.

The port of London has traditionally been at the heart of sourcing and blending quality herbs and spices.
It was here that the company first started as a small apothecary. Pride in their quality and experience gained over many years brings you inspired tastes based on the finest ingredients.
The London Fruit and Herb Company have adopted a philosophy of creating great tasting blends that are good for you. So dedicated are they to achieving this
that they have developed a unique process to provide you with a range of fruit flavors which really taste as good as they smell.
Not only do their tisane infusions taste exquisite but they also contain no added sugar or artificial flavors, colors or preservatives.

A review of Green Tea & Blackcurrant by London Fruit & Herb Company

Date: 11/18/2012
Company: London Fruit & Herb Company
Tea Name: Green Tea & Blackcurrant
Tea Type/Varietal: Green
Region:
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: cup/ tea bag
Plucking Season:
Liquor Color: purplish grape color but not of Concord grape
Leaf Characteristics:

  1. Steepings

1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 170 Fahrenheit
Time: 2 minutes

I am fixing a giant glass of this tea for my mid-morning sips. I take two tea bags and one tall mug and put the bags and pour some freshly boiled water into the mug and leave it to steep for 2 minutes, covering it with a saucer lid.

I like the tea’s aroma as it is filling the air around me with the scent of hibiscus, blackberry leaves and the blackcurrant juices and hints of licorice as I am now removing the cover from this tea.

Tea is a dark purple with some hints of red when placed directly under the light. Color looks more like wine and smells of a sprintzer wine cooler but it is warm. In sipping the tea it is fruity and I am met with the acidity to be found in the hibiscus and eventually as I swallow and take another sip there is a sweetness to be found from the licorice roots.

My intention is to continue to sip this tea throughout the rest of the morning by simply adding more hot water into my cup. The tea color does lighten to a cup of cranberry juice with not that dry after taste when drinking cranberry juice. This tea is more syrup/liquor like and I think this is because of the licorice mixture with the blackcurrant juice and the hibiscus with the green tea.

I like that I can enjoy this tea time and again since it is a complex cup of tea; one either likes it or does not.

This is…STINKY
Let me TRY to explain…
It DOES smell like Black Currants, I suppose, but I always thought that Black Currants kind of smelled STINKY for lack of better term…it’s like these lil berries can’t make up their mind if they want to be juicy, bitter, tart, sweet, or sour! BUT…that’s just the berry, I suppose.

As far as flavor is concerned – this bagged tea is highly flavored and it shows itself off in both aroma and taste.

It’s purplish in color between the black currant and the hibiscus. The hibiscus isn’t overdone but noticeable.

I can’t taste the licorice and I’m fine with that.

For accuracy-sake this is ‘right on’ flavor-wise. As far as my personal tastes go – eventho I’m not usually a blackcurrant connoisseur – this is pretty good but not something I would dash out and buy in large quantities.

I’m drinking it hot but thinking it would be better iced.

I know exactly what you mean! I tried this and never reviewed it, but I thought there was something smelly about it. Something that smelled dirty.

Whoa..I can hardly get past this teas’ smell to actually take a sip. Apparently I’m not a fan of black currant! When I make myself take a sip I am pleasantly surprised, it is nice and juicy. Even tho the taste is enjoyable, I can’t rate it highly because it’s so odiferous. The smell actually brings me back to feelings of morning sickness (read: all day sickness for months) during pregnancy. Not a happy place! Lol!
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for the chance to check this out! Even tho it’s not my favorite I’m glad I got to try it!
