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?
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
