Just chuggin’ along, making my way through the teas I haven’t written about yet. This is one that I purchased last year in France, and I drank it many times when I wasn’t back on Steepster yet. The name means “wild blackberry”, and it is a blackberry-flavored black tea.
The base tea is a mixture of malty, woody, and earthy, and is very smooth. To me, this tea is closer to black currant or elderberry than it is to blackberry. I suppose that’s because I expect blackberries to be tart, and this is more syrupy sweet with a concentrated rich flavor. But I happen to love black currant, so I’m not at all unhappy about that! The flavoring here is in perfect balance with the base tea in my opinion, it’s neither too strong nor too weak. The two are very well-matched.
I dig it. Very nice as an afternoon tea.
