Blackcurrant creates a distinct flavour with natural depth in this Cassis Ceylon black tea favorite.
Black tea, natural blackcurrant flavor
Our black aromatic blends, comprised of the highest quality Ceylon black tealeaves, are scented with the essential oils of natural ingredients -- in this case, cassis. These oils are added after the leaves have been fully oxidized and dried, complementing the distinctive taste of black tea with their characteristic flavours.

Very nice & smooth
This is a worthy substitute for Willow Tea Rooms’ version, which I haven’t been able to get lately. It’s much better than Ahmad (which has some bizarre undertones) and Twinings. Stronger than John Barney’s good-tasting but weak cassis tea. The price is quite steep however, so it will be a rare purchase.
Cassis tea brings my back to my grandma's garden. She would make black currant syrups that we would use winter time in our teas. I love that this black tea is not super bitter, and its subtle cassis aftertaste.
