Episode 332: Yumberry Blackcurrant


Yumberry might sound like the kind of marketing creation borne from Madison Ave., but this fruit has been enjoyed in China and other Asian countries for thousands of years. Stash Tea Company’s Yumberry Blackcurrant brings this flavor to you with hibiscus, lemongrass, chicory, and rosehips.

In terms of taste and smell, it reminds me a lot of M&K Tea Company’s Marvelberry Tea. When this is hot, it’s pretty unremarkable. The flavor — which is a lot like grape soda — comes out more when the tea is cold. I have more teas from Stash, so hopefully they have some better offerings than this.
