drank Cardamom Tea by Alokozay
1144 tasting notes

Grabbed this at a Middle Eastern Market in the Mission while I was in San Francisco. I’d say this is really coffee-like with zero coffee in it – although that may be because my son’s grandparents put cardamom in their coffee grounds prior to brewing. (Try it, it’s delicious!) Rich, full, heavy and thick tea, and surprisingly tasty for bagged.

Flavors: Cardamon, Thick

200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

oh, I love cardamom. do you remember the name of the market or where it was? :)


I can’t seem to find the name of it. It was right on Mission, along the less, er, nice side of the street, just past the 24th & Mission BART station. So my horrible directions… it’s almost directly across the street from the soda shop on Mission. Oh wait, I think I found it on Yelp. Samiramis Imports, 2990 Mission Street (between 26th and 25th).


groovy, thanks!

drank Strawberry Tea by Alokozay
383 tasting notes

This has a pretty nice strawberry flavour, tart, bright and fairly natural. Tastes convincingly like fresh strawberry. The flavouring is pretty strong over a light Ceylon base. The tea was more bop size rather than the dust you usually find in bags, faintly astringent and enough body to give the tea depth, but it`s flavouring is pretty lost to the flavouring. I taste just a bit of bitterness underneath. The tea has enough depth that it could take milk. Not bad for a tea I only bought so that I could meet the minimum for debit!
