Ugh! Cardamom- how I loathe thee!

I’m going to forgo rating today’s packet from the 12days of tea because my aversion to cardamom would make my rating unfairly lower than it should be. Besides, it says cardamom right in the name, so there’s no risk that I’d accidentally order this tea.

Despite my disdain for cardamom, I decided to still give this tea a try. I’m too curious to pass on any opportunity to try any of 52teas unique blends.

Considering how much I can taste the cardamom in this tea, I’m amazed at how I can drink it without making my bratty yuck face. It has that spicy warming feeling that I usually experience with ginger tea. I like this tea enough to say: if I had to choose a tea with cardamom to drink, this would be the one. But since I can’t see myself ever having to make that choice, I’ll pass on buying this one.

Ha! You’re a good sport ;) I was thinking of ginger (something I love very much) while drinking this too.

Wow, so many people here don’t like cardamom! I feel like the odd one out.

If there were any way to get me to start liking cardamom, it’s with tea. So far – no luck, but this tea did get me a tiny step closer…teeny tiny, but closer nonetheless.

That’s my mug! I’ve never really been a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh, but I like the fact that this mug is more or less clear. Plus, I can’t help but giggle when I say “ewww …I have Pooh on my mug” and people in the room gawk in horror before realizing I’m talking about Winnie. Am I easily amused? heck yeah!

A little something about my interests? – In no particular order, I love tea, makeup, paper crafting (card making), home renovations, and gardening.

As a rule, I tend to drink my tea without adding anything, but if that doesn’t work for me, I indulge in the fact that rules are meant to be broken. Yep! I’m such a rebel…sometimes I even color outside the of lines :P
