    The Blackcurrant Naturally Flavored Black Tea blend from English Tea Store is a naturally flavored black tea with a deep blackcurrant aroma and flavor.

    Blackcurrant is also known as Cassis. It is both a propagated and a 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. This particular aspect of blackcurrant is very evident on this tea. Blackcurrant gained notoriety in 1712 for its beneficial properties, which were published by Abbot Bailly inferring that blackcurrant was indeed an aphrodisiac and should be consumed with great care.

    The 3 high-grown districts of Sri Lanka, Nuwara Eliya, Dimbula and Uva, produce flavorful teas that have the classic "Ceylon" tea character which is noted by floral bouquet and flavor notes, touches of mild astringency, bright coppery color and, most importantly, perfect for use as the base tea of our flavored teas. Dimbula and the western estates of Nuwara Eliya have a major quality peak during Jan/Feb, whereas Uva and the eastern estates of Nuwara Eliya have their peak in July/Aug. This "dual peak period" allows us to buy the best for our flavored tea blends several times during the year, ensuring top quality and freshness. Using flavoring oils, not crystals, gives the tea drinker an olfactory holiday before indulging in a liquid tea treat.

    How to Make Tea

    Available in 3 sizes (Please select from the options above):

    • First time trying English Tea Store's Blackcurrant Flavored Loose Leaf Tea?

    • Contents loose leaf tea net weight 4 ounces
    • Contents loose leaf tea net weight 16 ounces (1 pound)

    Caffeine content: Medium - This tea contains natural caffeine found in the L. Camellia Sinensis family. A cup of black tea steeped in boiled water for 5 minutes will contain between 27 to 35 milligrams of caffeine. An equal sized cup of coffee will contain between 80 - 100 milligrams of caffeine. Caffeine quickly becomes soluble in very hot water. If you wish to reduce the caffeine level in this tea, briefly rinsing the tea leaves in extremely hot water will reduce the caffeine content between 25-50% with only a minor effect on taste.

    Antioxidant Content: High - The longer you steep your tea the more polyphenols will be extracted. (Test results based on 5 minutes steeping time. Polyphenol percentages may fluctuate with lot, grade of tea, testing method, temperature of water and freshness of tea). More antioxidants are extracted from tea (L. Camellia Sinesis) the longer it is brewed. And the more tea is used, the greater the antioxidant benefit.

      Low cost, flavoring tastes "natural" and not overpowering,...

      Low cost, flavoring tastes "natural" and not overpowering, similar to Snapple teas.

      As a fan of Twining's blackcurrant tea, I was excited to see a large quantity of loose blackcurrant for sale here. This tea is very good, my favorite kind to have in the morning.

      No Black Currant Flavor

      I was so disappointed with this tea. It didn’t taste like blackcurrant; it tasted like basil.
