I don’t know that I’ve ever had just a plain cardamom tea. I usually see it in blends, so I’m not quite sure what it tastes like by itself. The tea has a malty aroma with a faint hint of spiciness. The flavor is really bitter and spicy with a lingering bitter perfumey aftertaste. This one is just not for me. Thank you, TeaRunner, for this sample!

-Poor tea. A bitter cup with an odd spicy perfumey note.
