Another selection from the October Tea Sparrow box is Organic Crimson Currants. I’m just finishing it off today. I love fruity herbal blends, so I was excited to give this one a try. The ingredients in this blend are hibiscus, rosehips, black currant, cranberries, blueberry, elderberry, lemongrass and rooibos.
I prepared this blend using water at about 90 degrees Celsius. I always prefer water at a lower temperature for herbal blends, as I find it brings out the best flavors. I love the sweet tartness of this blend. The liquor is a beautiful burgundy red, with a rich, syrupy mouthfeel. The lemongrass note underlining the berry flavors makes for a well balanced blend that hits the palate with a huge burst of flavor.
Organic Crimson Currants is a beautiful blend that can be enjoyed any time of day, and any time of year. If you missed it from October’s box, you can still find it at Tea Sparrow’s website, right here.
