From Leaves of the World

If you wanna set the newest trends you need to get with me and my tea. I have the most awesome currants and strawberries around, plus my ginger makes me that little bit hotter than all those berry pretenders out there. So if you want something currant, you better get with it. Setting trends is what I do

This one came as a free sample with my first Leaves of the World order. While I appreciate the pun in the title, I wouldn’t say this isn’t really a currant tea. The main flavours are strawberry and blueberry, and they’re super juicy, natural-tasting, and flavour accurate – but they’re berries. It’s probably just me, but currant makes me think either of blackcurrant or dried fruit, and this is neither of those.

Name aside, this makes for a really lovely cup. The green base (almost certainly sencha) is light and delicate, and works well with the fruit flavours. It’s nice to find a fruit blend where the individual flavours come through well without seeming overdone or artificial, and for them not to meld together into a generic “berry” mush. I can clearly taste both strawberry and blueberry here, and they’re distinct, individual flavours. There’s supposed to be ginger also, but that’s totally lost on me. Perhaps my bag needs a shake up.

I think this would make an excellent iced tea come summer, but I doubt it’ll still be in my cupboard at that point. I could be tempted to buy some more, though…
