No idea how I didn’t add this to the database when I originally grabbed it. Can’t seem to buy it on their website, and when I was in their store, it was only available as a bagged, boxed tea. With the Brits so fascinated by anything blackcurrant (I don’t get it), I thought it would be a decent addition to my fix. Had my bag the other day (pretty sure I sent off the rest to Sil to distribute), and it was… okay. Fruity, full bodied, nothing to write home about — although I guess with this review, I technically am writing home about it.

Flavors: Fruity, Thick

Preparation
Boiling 1 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

I love blackcurrant! :) I wish we had more available here. As it is, my mom gets us licorice-blackcurrant candies from an import store once a year and that’s pretty much it. I remember the Sun Rype blackcurrant juice boxes – my favourite. :)

Bio

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. I now travel full time with only two carryon bags to my name. One quarter of those bags are tea.

It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more.

If I have enough, I’m happy to share. If I’m in your area, I’d love to swap, meet for tea, and explore together.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, travel and my writing and speaking work.

What kinds of teas do I normally like?

YES: flavored teas, fruity, dessert, chai, and spicy (REALLY spicy).

A FONDNESS FOR: all white teas, malty black teas, any herbal or medicinal teas, strange/weird teas you can only get in one place.

ALLERGIC TO: strawberries, lavender

DISLIKES: any added sugars, grains, lapsang souchong, and overly floral teas – I might enjoy a Jasmine Green every once in a while, but unless it’s a creamy floral tea (think roses in a chai, or the smoothness of a floral note in a French tea), I’ll likely pass. Earl Greys are a hit or miss with me; heavy on the cream or fruit notes and I might like it, heavy on the blergamot and I definitely won’t.
