I didn’t enjoy this tea as much as last time.
When I tossed my post-steep leaves I realized that the reason was most likely the gigantic cardamom pod that was in the mix. I’m not a huge lover of cardamom, so I preferred this tea the first time when cardamom was more of a complimentary flavor rather than being a dominant aspect.
It’s still a good rooibos, but I’m decreasing my rating. Damn you cardamom!
