Twinings Black Currant Tea [Food/Vendor]

2018 Apr 3
I'm stumped as to where I can find this. I've been to three different Metros and four different Loblaws. Lots of other Twinings stuff, but no old school black currant...anyone?

If you want to stock up, Amazon has it.

It sounds like something you might find at a European deli. That's just a guess.

Scottish and Irish store maybe.

Wow, I had to double check that I didnít post this myself! I was recently talking to a coworker about Twinings Black Currant, and how it was my studying beverage of choice during university. Iíve been casually keeping an eye out for it in grocery stores without luck.

Iíll check some of the suggestions and report back when I find out more!

Wow - could also have posted about this. A friend just dropped off some for me a few weeks ago. I'll ask where they found it and post back.

I've also been keeping my eyes peeled for black currant tea - any brand will do - but haven't seen any. I've only checked Continental Deli, Weidel and Byward Fruit without any luck. Not an exhaustive search by any means but I am wondering if the tea companies are still making it...

So, found out where the tea was purchased and if everyone here buys it all up I will not be happy! Share please! So, it was found at Metro at Greenbank Square a few weeks ago.

Is this a black tea with blackcurrant flavor??

If it is,you can probably just add Ribena syrup to your tea.

or maybe you can get blackcurrant flavour drops for water and add that to your tea??

Yes it's black tea with black currant flavour, but no, the acidity and sweetness of Ribena would produce rather a different result from the product we're talking about.

As a casual tea drinker, I struggle with non-tea botanical infusions for the same reason I wouldn't put Ribena in my black tea. Aside from the purely herbal infusions (mint, chamomile, etc) I find most tisanes to be too fruity and acidic.

I dearly love fermented teas in general... either English/Indian or Chinese style. I'm pickier with green tea, preferring jasmine-scented dragon pearl, genmaicha (with toasted brown rice), and slightly sweetened maghrebi (spiked with spearmint). I'm not a fan of matcha's seaweedy flavour in tea and desserts although I'd probably love it in a savoury dish.

Is this the stuff?

European Delicatessen on Merivale

My favorite black tea is a black tea leaf from the vendor "pu-erh tea" on ebay, they are located in Yunnan China and very nice to deal with.

They also sell a lychee black tea leaf that I buy by the pound to make my own iced tea.

For commercial tea I really like Stash tea ginger lemon green tea powder-I think it is a Sensha? green tea with no sugar added and bulk barn used to carry it.

Found the black currant tea at the Metro by March and Carling in Kanata. It was on sale to boot so I picked up a box yesterday. OMG it smells like wine gums, not the crappy ones you get today but the good ones like I remember when I was a kid!

Cedars and Co. stocks it as well (although I just nabbed the last box so give it a few days).

I saw it this afternoon at Metro on Rideau near Cumberland.

The Cheese House in the market has it.

I had the same issue trying to find Darjeeling tea, once a grocery store staple but no longer. Finally found it at European Deli on Merivale. Right beside the Black Cuurent you are seeking.
