Our Review
Our founder, John Harney, learned about teas from his mentor, Stanley Mason. And Stanley, as Old-school British tea man, only wanted black teas and traditional blends. However one day when Stanley was not looking, John made this delicious fruity blend.

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.

PLEASE Bring Black Currant Tea Bags Back!! Review by My favorite tea
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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Posted on 6/30/16)

My favorite year-round -- hot or iced Review by egh
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. (Posted on 4/8/16)

Excellent Review by Styarna
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. (Posted on 2/21/16)

Another favorite no longer offered in tea bags Review by Marilyn
Average Review:
My two favorite teas are black currant and apricot. You stopped selling apricot in tea bags much to my dismay so imagine my EXTREME disappointment to learn you have also discontinued offering black currant in tea bags. What's the deal? There's no convenient way to carry sachets. I suppose I'll just have to try and find another seller who offers convenience for its customers. (Posted on 11/27/15)

An Irish high tea tradition! Review by James Ross Spencer II
Average Review:
Black Currant has long been a traditional Irish favorite. this is my second favorite of Harney's (the first is Apricot). The flavor is fruity but not to sweet, and robust. A Great compliment with scones. This makes also a delicious ice tea. Either way you can't go wrong with Black Currant. (Posted on 11/22/15)

Top of the Line! Review by Cami
Average Review:
I have always loved teas but this Black Currant is top of the line in every way. The flavors are so bold and smooth without overpowering. I am currently addicted to this delicious blend. If only it came decaffeinated! I find it best made up as a tea latte using milk. Well done,Harney & Sons! (Posted on 10/5/15)

the best! Review by esbee
Average Review:
I love this tea so much my office is lined with the pink tins. The black currant flavor is just sweet enough that I weaned myself off of using any sweeteners. I drink this nearly every day as an iced tea. Now I am begging them to make it in K-cups so I can have it at work without having to brew it! (Posted on 7/31/15)

Wonderful flavor Review by EverHopeful
Average Review:
I have never acquired a taste for plain black tea, but the Black Current tea is a winner. It is a long-time favorite. Now, however, I have medical restrictions on caffeine intake. It would be beyond wonderful to have Black Current available in decaf. (Posted on 3/7/15)

Delicately flavored black tea. Review by Emiley
Average Review:
Black currant is a flavor I really love and while the notes of it in this black tea are delicate, they are present and deliciously fruity. Also, the body of the black tea isn't so strong that it overwhelms the currant flavor; they compliment each other well and the aroma is heavenly. So far I have only brewed this hot, but cannot wait to try it cold on a summer day! (Posted on 11/12/14)
