Just imagine a currant bush full of berries and its deep aroma and flavor. Our black currant is a surprisingly beautiful blend of Ceylon black tea noted by a floral bouquet of vitamin-rich blackberry leaves, as well as the medicinal qualities of mallow.
With a flavor profile similar to wine and touches of mild astringency, this bright coppery colored tea blend is best enjoyed in a variety of ways including hot, cold or as a latte that is high in antioxidants.

I’m not traditionally a hot tea drinker but this one blowed me away! Love the flavor and aroma...can’t wait to try all the other flavors!
The delicate aroma of flowers just makes you want to relax. The smooth taste and feel of this tea was perfect. I added a touch of orange blossom honey and think it was a good choice.
I was hesitant to try this because black tea was typically a little strong for me. I decided to give it a try because I have loved all the Irie Cup teas and I am so glad that I did. It is a great blend of flavors and not overpowering. This is a regular in my rotation :)
This tea has a bit of caffeine, which I don't normally drink, so I went with a medium brew as to not overload my system. What a pleasant surprise this was! Once again, the freshness of the tea is unbeatable. The fragrance reminded me of a prairie full of wild flowers. The taste was very smooth with a hint of grapefruit tartness. Because it's so smooth, I did not need sweetener. The best part for me, was how mellow this tea is. I am very sensitive to acid, and some teas just burn going down my throat. This is a wonderful change from that, plus, all the health benefits from black currant are amazing! I really, really liked this tea!
