I had this yesterday and it’s on the menu to try as a cold brew now. I have to say that this black currant flavour is intense. I’d take a sip and then be tasting it in my mouth well after i’d swallowed lol. I dont recall much about the base of the tea but i did really like the flavour. This was another share from the teafairy! thank you madam!

I’m not sure how I feel about black current. I don’t think it’s my favorite fruit, and this isn’t just generic berry. This is black current. The flavor is quite strong and pretty much drowns out any hint of base. If you are a black currant fan, you should really check this one out.
Thank you TheTeaFairy for sharing this with me, fun little tea.

Yes, this is an “in your face” flavour. Although I find it interesting, I can’t make up my mind if I like it or not…

I’ve never seen a red currant tea, by the way – I think it might be too tart?

I received this from TheTeaFairy and she commented that this is better cold brewed. Again, since she never steered me wrong, I used the entire 2-cup sample in a 500 ml mason jar and left it for a couple of days. I always either a) forget about my cold brews or b) see it in the fridge when I’m in a rush and thus no time to strain them and so they sit some more.

Here we are, 36 or so hours later. I am telling this to you so you know that it is quite forgiving as a cold brew. And it is indeed good but have no idea how it would compare if it were hot steeped. Don’t really care. This works for me and that’s that. I get a bit of flavour, it lingers in the aftertaste but that’s not to say it’s overpowering the base. I actually get quite a bit of base in the sip as well. So it’s definitely not a “juice” tea where all you can taste is the flavour. Thank you, TheTeaFairy ! I enjoyed this for sure but it is not on my radar as a must have. Not because it’s not good but because there are so many companies out there and I just can’t keep up with ALL the teas.
