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.

HT Black Currant

John's first flavored tea, it has "big" fruity berry flavor. This full-bodied tea has become a traditional favorite in fine restaurants all over America.

A little bolder fruity flavor Review by Tiffany
Average Review:
We are avid tea drinkers and my husband noticed immediately when I took the black currant tea tin to work with me. The flavor is moderate but more bold than the green/white fruit tea blends. The black currant pairs well with the China black tea, it stands up well to the medium body. (Posted on 3/21/13)

Tastey Tea Review by Lizz
Average Review:
I had never been much of a tea drinker in the past. However, I was recently introduced to Black Current tea at an afternoon tea and I fell in love with it! I went to the grocery store, looking for some Black Current tea, and decided to try this brand. Boy, was I pleased by the taste and quality! This is the best tea I have ever had. In addition to the superb quality and taste, the tea comes in the cutest little tin box, making this a lovely gift for any tea lover. A must-buy! (Posted on 12/17/12)

A very pleasant, balanced tasting tea. Review by Ryan
Average Review:
This tea has a fruity aroma and a medium dark color. With the first sip you can taste the subtle black currant flavor and the overall taste is very approachable, not dry or smoky at all. A little sugar, just a little, goes well with the black current flavor. Cream isn’t necessary but it doesn’t hurt. Overall this is fine, pleasant tea. (Posted on 9/1/11)

Great fruity flavor-- Review by sarah
Average Review:
This tea has a great fruity taste that's not cloying or artificial. I love a strong cup in the morning with cream and sugar. One of my favorite H & S teas. (Posted on 3/6/11)

Good to have around for a change Review by G.
Average Review:
I have tried five flavored black teas, and this is my second like so far. It is a little too strong perhaps when you brew it for the full time, so I usually do a brief steep. But it is one of the very good accompaniments to sweet bread topped with a berry or cherry preserve. (Posted on 2/10/11)

Best Tea We've Ever Had Review by Sharon
Average Review:
My husband drinks tea by the gallon and we were recently with friends who live on St. Simon's Island where we were served the Black Current tea, iced, for the first time. We had a hard time finding this and are thrilled to have finally connected to a source! My husband is going to be a happy camper on Christmas morning when he opens this box! (Posted on 11/23/10)
