Taster’s Review:

What a delightful tea with which to start my day!

The black tea base is an Assam, so it is rich and bold!  Very flavorful with a nice malty quality to it that compliments the wine-ish notes of the berries quite well.  The black currant notes does give this a wine-like taste that is further emphasized with the slightly dry astringency at the end of the sip.

The aroma and flavor is very berry-like, and it has a pleasantly sweet-tart taste.  It reminds me of late summer when the berries are ripe and bursting with flavor!  On this rainy spring morning, that is certainly a welcome thought, and with the deep, rich flavor and strength of the Assam, this tea gives me the energy I need to get up and start the day.

This would definitely make for a deliciously different breakfast tea for those days when you want something a little special!  And don’t you deserve something a little special every day?
