drank Black Currant by Ahmad Tea
141 tasting notes

I think this is the same tea, though Ahmad now calls it Blackcurrant burst. It has a smooth Ceylon black base, but I don’t taste any blackcurrants. I spent quite a bit of time in England while I was pursuing an advanced degree, and I came to love blackcurrant jam. I cannot sense any blackcurrant flavor, perhaps it is my cold, though I had no trouble tasting the lemon and lime, and peach and passionfruit earlier today. I’ll have to try it again in a few days before rating the tea.

I am a part time college instructor and also work in human resources in a family company. Apart from a rare cup of Lipton I drank in my parents’ home, I am a newbie to the world of tea. I have enjoyed Twinings and Ahmad bagged teas over the past month, and I am now just beginning to try loose leaf teas from Teavivre, Adagio, and Della Terra.

So far, I prefer black tea to green tea, and prefer to add cream or milk and sweetener to black tea. Unless the tea is white, green, or herbal, you can assume that I have added cream/milk and sugar to the tea in my reviews/ratings.
