Hello All,

Some may disagree, but I find the scent of black currants invigorating and  
healthy.  Just started picking my Ben Lomond.

I have a question... (or two)

How is the taste of a black currant variety rated?

I find the Titania is a bit sweeter, but lacks some of the spicyness of  
the Ben Lomond.  Some spicyness of Ben Lomond comes through as an  
aftertaste.  I would rate the Ben Lomond the better berry, but only by a  

It is not like comparing apples where taste can be so diverse.


Is there a good black currant tea recipe (leaves/stems/berries) out there?

So how do currant varietiess get rated (flavorwise)?
