Black Currant is also known as Cassis. It is both a propagated and wild-grown berry that some claim originated in France. Cassis is a very popular beverage throughout Europe, known for being aromatic in smell and in taste. This particular aspect of Black Currant is very evident in this tea.
Black Currant gained notoriety in 1712 for its beneficial properties, which were published by Abbot Bailly inferring that Black Currant was indeed an aphrodisiac and should be consumed with great care. On a hot summer day, Black Currant quenches one's thirst very well.
