Somehow oversteeped this, even though I was paying close attention! I had to add half & half (which I hate) so overall, not my best work. Not the tea’s fault, but it isn’t a fantastic blend to begin with. Ah, well!

Meghann M sent me a few bags of this as part of a fantastic swap box…thanks!!

I do really enjoy this tea. It reminds me of being back in England, where there’s blackcurrant-flavored things everywhere. And of pubs, and my first taste of lager & blackcurrant. So I’ll spend this pot imagining I’m back on the balcony of the flat at Knaresborough, and put off the real world for just a bit longer.

Ahh…lager and blackcurrent—brings back memories—isn’t that combo called a “Snakebite”?


To tell the truth, I’ve no idea. I was in London for 3 months, and only once did I ever order my own drink…and that time it was an Archers & Lemon.

Brewed up 3 bags of this with 12 oz boiling water to serve over a cup of ice. This is enjoyable iced, however the currant flavor is tasting quite artificial. It might be the splenda I used to flavor the cup without tasting the plain tea prior to adding. I think this would do better without the splenda. I will rate once I try it with no additives.

I love black currant in black tea. I have seen this tea at my grocery, is it juicy tasting?

Meghann M

Sorry to get back to you so late, it is pretty juicy tasting. Want me to send you a few bags?

Bleagh! Ugh! YUCK!

I don’t know what I did wrong but this is just nasty. Blackcurrant Tea smells about right – fruity and rich – but it tastes AWFUL. I can’t even describe the yuck, except that I don’t want any more of it.

I can’t believe I’m taking another sip, but I’m trying to figure out why I think it’s so nasty. It just tastes bad. Almost sour and earthy. It honestly makes me think of vomit. Maybe that’s just my body telling me what it wants to do if I don’t stop drinking it.

At any rate, ugh. I don’t like this tea at all!

My guess? -the dreaded hibiscus. It’s used (or rather over-used) as a flavouring agent in a lot of fruit teas made by larger tea-bag companies like Stash and Celestial Seasonings. Basically it’s a cheap way for them to semi-replicate ‘tart’ fruit flavours.


Ugh, I hate hibiscus. :( I bet you’re right!

I know it’s hardly the best tea in the world, but this and Constant Comment evoke warm, fuzzy memories. That can’t be bad, surely? :)

When properly brewed, and taken with a little milk and sugar, this tea is actually really fantastic. It’s like dessert with caffeine, and it got me through many a looooong day spent in Technical Services when I used to work in an academic library. It brought some much-needed sweetness to cold, dusty afternoons. Although there have been plenty of teas before and since that have been better, this is still immensely comfortable. Like an old plush bathrobe. It may not be pretty to anyone else, but you’ll still wear it around your house and feel utterly at home while wearing it.

I am a bit disappointed by this tea. It is fruity, smooth, and sweet. Seems like it would be great, but something about this tea just doesn’t taste right to me. Maybe I don’t like blackcurrant. Maybe it’s too sweet. Maybe the flavor is just a hint too artificial for me. Maybe I would like it iced instead of hot. It’s just not my cup of tea.

Prepared hot with 200°F water for 5 minutes.

This has been my favorite tea now for over ten years. I get sad when I run out! My local grocery store doesn’t always carry it, so I usually order it in multiple boxes online. It’s a nice strong black tea with a confident blackcurrant flavor addition- sigh, wish it came in decaf so I could drink it at night, too. I always drink it black; sugar would be okay but can’t imagine adding milk.

Those free Twinings samples they were giving to everyone from way back last year have finally arrived. I’d almost forgotten about them!

This one has a sweet blackcurrant scent, and brews up to a dark tea that is surprisingly smooth as well as brisk. I wasn’t expecting much from the filter bag, but it’s decent. It would make a nice iced tea given the berry-like blackcurrant flavor. The sweetness seems slightly artificial, but other than that it was a pretty good, unassuming fruity black tea.


I forgot, too! I don’t remember ever getting mine. I wonder if they are on the way? LOL!


I remembering I had asked for samples once before, a few years ago, and they actually sent me an email apologizing for how late they were. Maybe this year they’re still on schedule by some loose definition ;)

My tea. I first had it 27 years ago. Damn I’m old.

But it takes me back to where I grew up sitting on my mums red velvet couch watching Star Trek while my parents played dungeons and dragons with their friends.

It isn’t a loose tea, it is a bag, it is Twinnings and it is comfort. It also helps me beat the Alliance when I play World of Warcraft and yes I called my character Cassis after this tea.
