Clementine Clove Black tea

Clementine Clove tea is most definitely French. The tea owes its existence to the former French Empire that stretched from North Africa to the Far East. Clementines, (Latin: citrus reticulata), are believed to have been developed by an Algerian priest named Pierre Clement in 1902. Clement apparently discovered the small hybrid citrus growing in the courtyard of his orphanage near Oran in what was then French Algeria. He noted how deliciously sweet they were, began propagating them and soon they had spread throughout North Africa. Cloves on the other hand, (Latin: Syzygium aromaticum), although they originated in Indonesia, were named by the French. The word clove stems from the word clous, which mean “nail”, an item the spice closely resembles. Cloves have a very unique, slightly nutty, musky flavor. When you combine the two, Clementines and cloves, the result is nothing short of fantastic. When you combine them both with a high-grown Ceylon tea as we have done here, the results are even better. Brew a pot of clementine clove tea today and taste life in the colonies of old. Magnifique!

        If you like clove you will like thisI am not a huge fan of clove, that being said my husband loved this tea. It's a nice blend with some citrus hints to it. It does have a stronger taste to it than some of the other teas I have tasted so if you don't like clove I'd opt for something different. I received a sample of this in order to give my opinion on.
