From Teas Etc

Wonderfully aromatic with the scent of juicy berries, Summer Currant flavored tea is bold, and sweet, reminiscent of hot cross buns at Easter. Subtle undertones provide an unassuming base for the light, raisin-like flavor of dried currents. Never bitter this tea is equally delicious first thing in the morning or as an afternoon snack.

Ingredients: Black Tea, black currants, flavor and cornflower petals

Origin of Summer Currant : China

Since I have Teas Etc. on the brain today I thought I’d try something else of theirs.

In the tin, this tea has a deep, strong, currant smell. It’s a lot like raisins, or pre-raisins (i.e. grapes). It has a slight sharpness to it that reminds me of red wine. There are whole currants in here, about the size of blueberries and looking far less shrivelled than I think of when I think of currants. Cool. And it has those blue cornflowers that I love looking at so much.

The aroma is also very curranty. It does remind me of some sort of baked goods. I wouldn’t have picked hot cross buns, but I might have said currant scones. Yum.

This is a sneaky little tea. At first it didn’t really taste all that remarkable. But the more I drank, the more I liked it. It’s interesting. It has a thicker mouth feel than most black teas, and the flavor of the currants is nicely balanced with the flavor of the tea. It’s almost like drinking a red wine without having to worry about getting tipsy. I’m for that, especially during a workday! It’s very comforting while hot. As it cools, the flavor becomes more raisiny/grapey, still quite nice but not as comforting. I think it would lose it’s charm iced, but I’m not much of an iced tea maven.

I’m glad I ordered this with my last Teas Etc. order. I’ll likely keep this one around for when I feel like a glass of wine but without the alcohol. ;-)
