From World Spice Merchants

As a response to the simple flavor of tea grown in the Nilgiri Hills of India, locals added spices. Recipes vary greatly but most contain Peppercorn, Cardamom and Ginger. We add Cassia, Clove and Orange for extra flavor. Choose a black tea such as Assam to complete the beverage (i.e. tea not included).

I was surprised that I had bought just the spices; as such, I could whichever tea base I wished (I used Upton Tea’s decaffeinated Assam). Since I’d only bought a few ounces, I brewed the concoction too strongly this first go (and I like my tea strong). The spices were good: strong and pungent, and held up wonderfully with milk and sugar. Good aroma, too, and I enjoyed having control over the amount of spiciness I wanted in a particular cup of tea.
