First, did I mention the importance of adding cardamom to this tea? Ok good, also it seemed to have a bit more body with a longer steep time. I really should be at work by now but the combination of Sadaf Special Blend and a little Piazzola has put me in a spicy haze that has rendered me incapable of getting anything done (including writing coherent metaphors).

I’m curious… have you tried the Sadaf with cardamom? I love that one, but I also love Earl Grey tea, so I figure this blend is OK without the cardamom (although that does make sense to me). I’m wondering why you feel the need to add cardamom.. unless you’re not a fan of Earl Grey?

@raaberao, thanks for the comment. I don’t mind Earl Grey, but I personally found the actual tea in this particular blend to be one-dimensional (storage problems?). The cardamom idea came from an Iranian friend who normally drinks this tea that way.
