Decaf Spice Black Loose Tea


A deep blend of Masala Spices to perk you up.

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 on 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.

Here in our Decaf Black Spice tea we have a fine, complex example. It features 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 savor them in the clarity of a black tea base.
