I have a hard time believing this tea has a green base, since I can’t taste it at all. The other “stuff” in this tea completely takes over, but that is definitely not a bad thing.
Once upon a time the Ethiopian restaurant in London used to have this kind of “Ethiopian cardamom tea” that I used to love. They’ve stopped offering it because the ingredients for it became too expensive. This tastes so close to that tea I used to love that it’s the best substitute I’ve found so far. There’s something “sweet” in it that gives it a really pleasant after-taste; I think it might be the ginger. The mixture of fennel seed and liquorice root gives a good flavour without tasting like black liquorice. I love the mint leaves, and the pepper and cardamom give it a nice spicy after-taste.
A definite yum, and I would definitely buy it again.
