Assam black tea garnished with black currant leaves and sweet berries. We recommend enhancing this tea with a lemon zest or cream for an outstanding smooth and lightly fruity morning beverage.
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?
