I was digging through some samples at home and brought a number of them in to work to finish up (eventually). This is one I got from Bulk Barn over a year ago but it still smells of juicy black currants despite poor packaging. I’m impressed! I also did a naughty thing yesterday and ordered some Black Currant from Tea Forte with a coworker so I was really jonesing for some currants! I’ve only ever had currant flavoured things and I’ve never seen, smelled or tasted a real currant but this tea when brewed still smells just like those Simpkins Black Durrant Drops that I loooove. I understand currants to be more of a UK thing? They don’t seem very popular here in North America.

Anyway, the tea! As I say, the aroma is like the candies though the taste has muted with the passing of time and bad storage. I’m also picking up a weird note that seems to have seeped through the whole basket from some other tea. That’s disappointing, but to be expected. While I remember this tea as very juicy and flavourful it is now an echo of that. Oh well, my fault. I will enjoy the remainder and eagerly look forward to the Tea Forte Black Currant which I hope will be lovely!

When I saw Uniquity’s note about Bulk Barn carrying this and other teas, I was just too intrigued. I ended up out in my hometown at a time when the Bulk Barn was open over the weekend, to my great excitement. I love Bulk Barn. I bought too many Clodhoppers.

Anyway, I picked some of this up as well as a green tea and am also pleasantly surprised by it. I oversteeped it and it was a little bitter, but still very drinkable. The currant juiciness is really exuberant and translates well from the dry scent into the brewed taste. I think this could be good to keep on hand for when I crave a fruity black tea. That doesn’t happen with great frequency but this is really tasty and so ridiculously affordable.


Huzzah! I, too, bought too many clodhoppers when I was there. I love the yogurt ones. Glad you could find something to enjoy there as well!


Yeah! I was so surprised by the tea selection. I’ll definitely be trying some more when I have more time in the store. It’s helping satisfy my need to try new teas, but much more wallet-friendly than tea shops.


The prices have me over the moon. I just hope that they have even more flavours I am interested in. What with the “tea boom” I am sure the selection will only increase.

When we made it to bulk barn recently, I remembered Uniquity’s note about their looseleaf tea and had to try it…this one especially. I’m in love with the black currant from Camerons and I had to know if this was as good.

It wasn’t as good, but it was still damn good. Yum. It was good enough for me to feel like I might just survive when my Camerons supply runs out. Nice and juicy without being bitter…this is what I need in a black tea.

Wow, I was very surprised by this tea as well. I had seen the other tasting notes and thought I had to give it a try.
The tea is actually quite decent. A lot more fruity than I was expecting. A fairly smooth black tea.
And for that price! 66cents for 25g. I will certainly pick up more of it.

Wow, pathetic. Nothing ruins tea like keeping it in the plastic bags you buy it in at Bulk Barn.

I picked up a three cup sample of this two months ago, and it was juicy and delicious. Since I only had two teaspoons left, I didn’t bother rebagging it. Well, having another cup today, most of the flavour is already gone. There’s black tea base and a hint of currant, but I’m unimpressed.

This tea is absolutely worth drinking when it’s fresh, and hopefully worth drinking when it’s stored properly, but damn, how quickly this got boring.

If you buy teas at Bulk Barn, move them to a better storage container right away. They have a lot of good teas that just don’t hold up well in their little plastic bread tab bags.

Spices don’t hold up well in those either, heh.
