Personally, I found this a bit underwhelming. Maybe I was expecting too much but I was expecting a nice fruit and herb tea with a lovely berry flavor and got...a hint maybe of berry. It's ok, just not great.

I found this tea to not taste as complex as I'd hoped. The flavor blend sounded just wonderful, but I didn't detect nearly the vanilla flavor as I'd hoped and expected.

Black currents are the main flavor focus in this tea, and while they certainly taste good (and a bit tart), it leaves a little to be desired. It is nicely sweet, but more of the vanilla flavor that enticed me to drink it so much would be great. I only taste the faintest hint of it.

The aroma of this tea isn't as bold as I would have expected, either. Not that it smells bad, just doesn't draw me into the tea as other ones sometimes do.

Overall, I do enjoy this tea, I just wish it had more vanilla flavor in it. Still good, though.

Slightly sour but still fruity. A very light tea that was nice during the day while reading a book or sitting around chatting. It was nice to drink when I was stressing out a little, but that could simply be because I was drinking tea. It is not one of my favorite teas, but not something I would avoid.

Very fruity, dominated by the blackcurrant. Lacking complexity in the aroma. No bitterness...but very sour, too sour for me. I didn't really notice the ginseng or vanilla. I much prefer Twining's blackcurrant-flavored black tea.
