A sample from MissB! Thank you. :)

This is really really good. It’s exactly what it says it is – a cardamom black tea. Nice and strong, very spicy, amazing with a splash of milk.

I really like it, and if I was in the market for a cardamom tea I’d totally hunt this down and buy some. As it is, I have Too Many Teas. ;)

When/if you decide to look for it. It can be found lately at bulk barn, Metro ( or whatever subsidiary is around you), among others. It hasn’t been to hard to find lately. The strawberry one is pretty good too!

High fives, TeaBrat! It’s an interesting club to be sure.

yyz, I was just going to say we don’t have a bulk barn here, but apparently we do! Just in a pain-in-the-butt location to bus to. :)

Would mixing green cardamom pods (or ground cardamom) with black tea have a similar result?

TeaBrat

@Kittena, I have used dessicated cardamom with good results, not sure about the pods. The powder is super fine and might just make a mess in your tea.

I just crack the green pods and added them to good result. It’s not quite the same flavour as this tea though.

I’ve done cardamom powder in coffee before so I’m sure it would work.

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

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

MissB

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).

TeaBrat

groovy, thanks!

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!
