Backlogging yesterday…Indian Spice by Harney & Sons. This is a “psuedo chai”. I call it that because all of the other Chai’s I’ve had are a combination of black tea and physically identifiable spices, like cardamon seed, clove buds, cinnamon bits, ginger, and one even had black peppercorns. This tea is what it claims…“Flavored Black Tea”, not what I expected when the word “Chai” is used (yes, I know chai means tea). Ok, disclaimer’s aside, this is a good tea. The spice is nice and well done, more in the vein of a mulling i.e. it doesn’t have that sharpness associated with ginger or black pepper. Visually, this is a deep black, processed tea. It looked like a black “gun powder”. It produced a transparent, deep red/brown liquor with a lot of fines in the bottom. The fines settled out quickly and nearly completely, even when agitated. I also had a resteep and, while milder/paler, it was good as well. I could see this tea being the basis of some good winter holiday beverages.
