I received a sample pouch of this and decided to give it a try. I liked this so much more than the organic citrus ginkgo that I tried yesterday!
I brewed this as directed (2 cups water at 212 degrees for 15 minutes before added 6 cups of cold water) and was impressed with its refreshing flavor.
You get a definite berry taste along with a black tea flavor that makes it self known but does not overpower the brew. This tea takes sweetener and a dab of creme very well. I haven’t tried it hot yet (I have a sample of the the plan old black currant blend waiting) but I don’t see why it wouldn’t taste as good hot as it did cold.
It doesn’t beat out Irish breakfast or Harney’s Royal Palace as my favorite black tea blends but with 109 degree weather expected here on Sunday, I can see stocking up on this for those hot summer days.
