Blackcurrant Burst is a brisk and energising fruit tea blend. Jam-packed with delicious berry flavour, it’s a bright and invigorating blend that’s sure to give you a summery lift – whatever the weather!
Our Tea Masters balance black teas from East Africa to create the perfect base for this blend. We then add our signature blackcurrant flavouring and real blackberry pieces to enhance the briskly robust tea with a bold fruitiness. A touch of mint adds a lighter note, transporting you to nostalgic summer gardens and hedgerow-lined country lanes. It’s no wonder our Blackcurrant Burst has been a much-loved part of our collection for over 20 years.
Each teabag is foil-wrapped for freshness to ensure every brew reaches you full of flavour. Blackberries are a popular summertime fruit, foraged from the countryside and destined for late summer drinks, desserts, jams and dishes. We’ve created this blend so you can enjoy the qualities of our superior black tea and blackberries in one cup, all year round. It makes an energising cuppa brewed with hot water, or celebrate the berry flavours with a cooling blackberry iced tea. Steep with sugar, then simply dilute with iced water. We like to add a slice of lemon for a citrus twist.

Each and every morning, my favourite cup of tea would be English Breakfast. It’s strong, it’s coloury, it’s got a wonderful nutty flavour that I really do enjoy, and it takes the milk well.William Manning, Senior Tea Taster
In the UK Head Office we taste over 500 cups of tea every day, to search for the best quality teas available from around the world.Dominic Marriot, Tea Taster
Later on in the afternoon I might try something like a Darjeeling that has the muscatel flavour, or maybe even a high-grown Ceylon, but definitely my favourite brew, and the one that I drink the most of, is English Breakfast.William Manning , Senior Tea Taster
