My favorite blend in the ‘flavored’ departmant of blacks.
The leafs look very moist and juicy. The odor of this blend is fascinating from the moment of opening the tin until putting the tea cup to one’s lips.
Obviously very warm spices were used for this fine blend. Very comforting in winter time and rather cooling during summer. Suppose one might get a excellent ice tea out of it (although I never did and probably never will).
By the way, a handful of dried plums go great with that tea.
None of the spicy chai blends I tried before got close to the excitement of drinking this BOH blend…my palate gets confused with all this ginger, sandalwood, cinnamon and endless other notes that get thrown in common chai blends nowadays. Therfore: two thumbs up for BOH.
BOH " Clove & Cardamom"
More than 5000ft above sea level, on the main mountain range of Malaysia, is one of the most fertile agricultural spots in the country: Cameron Highlands.
Nicknamed ‘Malaysia’s Green Bowl’, the highlands possess all the right attributes of prime cropland – moderate temperatures, high altitude, abundant rainfall, long hours of sunshine and well-drained soil.
In 1929, J.A. Russel established Boh Tea Garden, the country’s first highland tea garden in Cameron Highlands.
Clove & Cardamom – flavoured with the Indian spice, this tea is reminiscent of the heady Masala tea.
