I see that this tea had a few very high scores here but my experience was somewhat different. I like the flavor of black currant since my childhood and thus am I very fond of black currant-flavored teas but this blend just did nothing for me. The base tea is of a poor quality, the aroma and the flavor of blackcurrant is rather faint and generic: just a tiny notch above some random black currant teabags at the supermarket.

I have trying to finish a 100g pouch of it for a year and have to literally force myself to choose it over any other tea I have. I will probably have to just throw it away ( which I HATE doing to any tea!) and try my luck with black currant blends from Harney or Simpson & Veil.

A nice tea with a wine-like scent, nice flavor, and very little bitterness. It is a slow-sipper. It would probably go very well with a croissant or toast and pleasant company. It has very little complexity or drama. It is comfortable, like sitting down with an old friend.
