Three times since 2003, I have marveled at the smell of the loose-leaf black currant tea samples in Murchie's Victoria store. Zero times I've come back with any. Don't ask; I don't know why. Guess it just fell out of the line behind other teas that ended up stuffing our luggage.

Rectifying that negligence has been a pleasure. Though I ordered bags instead of loose, the only slight weakness of the bagged version (and it's not a problem, really) ironically is the aroma. Whatever wagon of black teas they selected to hitch up the black currant berry flavor (which I do love), it works. Neither the base tea nor the black currant essence dominate the other. It's a warm, friendly, yet firm and disciplined fusion.

The black currant seems to strengthen with each sip for several sips into the cup, and I've traced it to the aftertaste holdover. The aftertaste is berry-dominant and noticeably stronger on that side than the initial flavor, but that's OK with me. It lasts a good long time, and carries over seamlessly into the next sip. One of the best single-essence flavored teas I've had...
