From Good Life Tea

Years, miles, blood, and more have gone into the spice trade; one of modern history’s most fascinating, long-borne, and travel-rich sagas. Directly tying culinary, political, military worlds and more, the spice trade is a tale based as much as exploration as on profit. From this history we earn the endless benefit of knowledge of far-flung places. Ceylon, or Sri Lanka, is one with a particular tie to simple, satisfying, hardy teas. Of black, white, and green, black is – as it is worldwide – the most prevalent ceylon tisanal. And here in our Decaf Black Spice tea we have a fine, complex example. Ginger root, cinnamon bark, cloves, cardamom pods. The fragrance of this Decaf Black Spice tea has a character of its own, tantalizing before the first sip and begging the question: how could there possible be balance in a flavour collection with so many robust individual components? The answer is that the higher notes of each spice, clear as they are (and delicious) in the aroma, all willingly mesh into an elegant, more subdued drinking experience that calms one naturally decaffeinated sip at a time.
Clove and cinnamon tend to showboat, which is why chai makes such nice use of them (as well, of course, as cardamom) but this Decaf Black Spice tea gives you a chance to savour them in the clarity of a black tea base.
Base leaf: Black tea.
Health properties: General restorative.
Flavor strength: Full, spiced. Primary collection is bark spice with mellow near-sweet finish.
Caffeine: None.

I got a sample of this tea along with another decaf. I’m not too experienced in decaf’d blacks and thought I’d take a spin for an evening tea. This one sips in watery with a light chai spice with cinnamon, clove and ginger finish.

I wasn’t too keen on the watery start as I was expecting something a bit more richer and thicker texture, however my sample was also pretty smashed in transit.

Another free sample from Good Life Tea’s decaf sampler. It has the same small, quite broken black tea base, and there are pieces of citrus peel and various spices (ginger root among others). I did a 3 minute steep at 200 degrees.

I can smell a lot of clove and some ginger in the steeped tea. I added a small amount of raw sugar to my cup. This is definitely a mildly spiced black tea, which is nice. I suppose it would also be stronger with a longer steep, but I like to keep the steep short with broken leaf teas to prevent bitterness. I can definitely taste cinnamon and clove the most, but there’s also ginger in there and a touch of orange. A little bit astringent for me, but nothing too crazy. Pleasant. :)
