anise – The Year of Tea

Episode 174: Kenyan Chai

I’ve gotta say…I’m really a fan of this Kenyan Chai from Zoomdweebie’s. This blend includes black tea from Kenya and it’s mixed with ras el hanout, a savory, pungent spice blend used in North African cuisine.

Ras el hanout is filled with great aromatics (cumin, ginger, cinnamon, etc.), and the unique mix of spices gives a really complex taste to this blend. It’s great hot and fantastic as an iced tea. I love how tea can take you around the world from just a single cup! I just wish I could buy more of this particular blend.

Episode 211: Pu’erh Spice

Two pu’erh blends in a row! Today, it’s Adagio Teas’ Pu’erh Spice. There’s cinnamon, ginger, anise, and orange in this blend (check the photo for that nice piece of orange peel). There’s also “natural spice flavor” which…actually, I have no idea what that’s supposed to mean. Come on, Adagio!

It’s an okay tea. Not too bad, but not too spectacular either. The spices are the real star here, and they elevate the rather bland pu’erh into something drinkable. Your mileage may vary.
