Black Currant Tea

Black Currant Tea has a deep aroma & flavour.  Along with our Blackberry Black and Strawberry Patch green teas, it has one of the most striking aromas in our store.  It is both a wonderfully flavorful tea, both hot and stunning as an iced tea.  Currants are quintessentially British, used quite a bit in baking recipes, including mincemeat tarts, which is how we were introduced to them as children.

Also known as Cassis, the currant is both a propagated and wild grown berry which some claim originated in France. Cassis is a very popular beverage throughout Europe, known for being aromatic in smell and in taste.  One smell of our sample in the store and you’ll know what we mean.  This particular aspect of Currant is very evident on this tea.

They gained notoriety in 1712 for its beneficial properties, which were published by the Abbot Bailly inferring that Black Currant was indeed an aphrodisiac and should be consumed with great care. On a hot summer day this Currant tea will quenche one’s thirst very well.

A standard in many European tea rooms, why not make it a standard in yours.

If you like fruity teas, we have many in black, green and herbal.  Among the many we carry, please consider our Strawberry Patch Green, Bohemian Raspberry Green, Strawberry Black, Berry Fusion Herbal, Tahitian Breeze Black, and Mountain Huckleberry Black.  We have far too many to name here.
