Did you know that Bulk Barn sells loose tea? And at super affordable prices. If you want to try loose but are not quite ready to pay the big tea shop prices, it is a great place to start. Or for those who just want to stock up on basic loose teas, amazing prices. I tried several teas and will be sharing them over the coming weeks, the first is Black Currant black tea. It is priced at $3.64 for 100g but you can buy a little to start. Make it an even better deal with the coupons they offer for $3 off a purchase of $10 or more on a regular basis.
Bulk Barn Black Currant Black Tea Steeping Instructions and Ingredients
Ingredients: Black tea with black currant flavour, flowers. China black tea is blended with the essence of black currant to produce this satisfying beverage. Try this as a dessert tea.
Steeping Instructions: 1 rounded teaspoon per 8oz with freshly boiled water. Steep for 5 minutes.
Bulk Barn’s Black Currant tea is a flavoured black tea, so no visible black currants and doesn’t have that juicy flavour or scent of similar teas. Don’t get me wrong, it still have a juicy flavour, just not quite as in your face as some of the more expensive brands. Like DAVIDsTEA, you don’t need to buy a lot at once. At $3.64 for 100g I certainly would, but you can get a small bag to try. I got 25g to start and have already picked up a big bag of this Black Currant tea.
The tea brews to your typical dark red black tea look. I used one Perfect Spoon for 12oz so a bit more than they recommend. There is a little dust that makes its way through the steeping basket. If not using tea bags, you may want to shake it first before adding water to limit the dust in your tea.
At $3.64 for 100g you really can’t go wrong with this tea. The black tea power for some caffeine and punch and enough berry and black currant flavour to sweeten the astringency of the black tea. It does taste amazing with a little honey or rock sugar though so I recommend trying it sweetened.
