I drank Black Currant tea (black tea) from Peet's Coffee & Tea for over 30 years. Recently, in their corporate restructuring, they made several changes to their long-time products availability. Black Currant tea was dropped from their product list. As a result, I went looking for another source. Fortunately, I found this mixture from Enjoying Tea. I find it just as tasty and even slightly more fragrant than the tea I drank for so long. It is hearty and flavorful, which is what I was looking for. I drink my tea very strong with milk and honey. This tea is a great replacement for my old favorite.

Having grown black currants before, I found the flavor of this tea to be right on the money. That said, black currant flavor is almost too strong alone (the berries made a fantastic jam tho). I haven't yet tried mixing this with other fruit-flavored black teas but it needs to be toned down a little for my tastes. I have no quarrel with the quality or even the flavor (it is accurate) but it is a little overpowering.

Black Currant Black Tea
Excellent tea. Crisp & flavorful with a nice fruity taste; slightly sweet and never bitter. Great on its own or with creamer or milk either as a hot or cold beverage. Even with shipping, it is cheaper for me to buy from Enjoying Tea in California (I live in Massachusetts) than purchasing from my local tea purveyor, who keeps running out of it. Highly recommend black currant tea.

Really great ice tea
This makes a fabulous ice tea because of the subtle fruit sweetness.

This is the only fruit infused flavor they sell at the best gourment tea/coffee place. This brand is just as fresh and good.

Wonderful, aromatic tea!
Black Currant Tea has a pleasant taste and smell and looks lovely in a glass cannister. We received a small sample when purchasing a tea set and came back to order a full pound because it was so good. Give it a try; you won't be sorry!

I received this as a free sample and immediately fell in love with it. It has a unique aroma and flavor and has become my every day tea. I have shared it with others in the office and they love it just as much as I do. It does not do well with a second steeping but you can steep it for a long time without getting a harsh or bitter taste.

Black Currant Tea
A little bit weak, you have to steep more than 8 min. to get flavor of black currant. Good point- doesn't get bitter with over steeping.

Black Currant Black Tea
It has a very original smell that bothers me a little. It's rather strong but the flavor itself doesn't resemble black currant too much. It tastes okay with a little bit of honey.

Black Current Black Tea
This is (so far) my favorite black tea. It has a rich, comforting flavor and it is strong enough to ensure that you are drinking a full-bodied tea. It is on the other end from, say, green tea (which I also like). I also enjoy the tangerine black tea. It's a great way to start the day!

Somewhat exotic flavor, but all natural
I received this item as a sample and I wouldn't have really picked it on my own. When I think of fruit flavored black tea, I'm worried it will taste artificial or bitter. This tasted very natural and doesn't turn out bitter. The currants taste like an exotic berry, since I've never tried them before. Overall, fantastic.
