Need Suggestions for a Tea Containing Clove
I’m trying to find a tea for someone that contains a lot of clove but not a chai. Can anyone suggest a good tea they’ve tried that has a very pronounced clove fragrance and flavor?
Chandernagor by Mariage Freres is a very good tea and pretty heavy on the clove, though it may not pass the test of not being a chai…
We used to offer (at Zoomdweebie’s, not through 52teas) a clove flavored black tea, which was really popular. Maybe we should reinvent it for 52teas…
Clementine Clove from Metropolitan would be my suggestion.
I don’t see it reviewed/tasting notes yet, but I can add it when I get my order in.
I sold out of what I had & the aroma is wonderful.

It may not be as synonymous with France as croissants or the Eiffel Tower but Clementine Clove tea is most definitely French. The tea owes its existence to the former French Empire that stretched from North Africa to the Far East. Clementines, (Latin: citrus reticulata), are believed to have been developed by an Algerian priest named Pierre Clement in 1902. Clement apparently discovered the small hybrid citrus growing in the courtyard of his orphanage near Oran in what was then French Algeria. He noted how deliciously sweet they were, began propagating them and soon they had spread throughout North Africa. Cloves on the other hand, (Latin: Syzygium aromaticum), although they originated in Indonesia, were named by the French. The word clove stems from the word clous, which mean “nail”, an item the spice closely resembles. Cloves have a very unique, slightly nutty, musky flavor. When you combine the two, Clementines and cloves, the result is nothing short of fantastic. When you combine them both with a high-grown Ceylon tea as we have done here, the results are even better.
It appears they don’t sell directly to consumers and I couldn’t find a retailer locator function on their website.
