Black Currant

Black Currant was John Harney's first flavored tea. You'll enjoy its "big" flavor of fruit and berry. This full-bodied tea has become a traditional favorite in fine restaurants all over America. Delicious served hot or iced. Kosher. *Please note: Black Currant tea bags were discontinued Fall 2015. As an alternative, please try our Black Currant sachets or loose tea.

My favorite tea

PLEASE Bring Black Currant Tea Bags Back!!
Average Review:

This is by far my favorite tea and I'm constantly giving samples to friends/co-workers who drink tea. I have found that the sachet bags do not make as good of a cup of tea as the teabags - it takes 2 sachet bags to make as good a cup of tea as one tea bag. So please, please bring back the tea bags. I'd even pay extra if the cost is the problem with having tea bags in addition to the sachets. Please, please bring the tea bags back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My favorite year-round -- hot or iced
Average Review:

I, too, am disappointed that this is no longer available in foil-wrapped tea bags. However, I find the resealable bag for the sachets works fine -- and I use zip lock bags to carry smaller quantities as needed.

Excellent
Average Review:

My partner and I drink a lot of black tea, and this is one of our favourites. It has a well-balanced taste, not overly fruity, and makes a great afternoon tea.
