paid a mere 3.25 euros for 450gr at a local store, and didn’t expect much of it, as I just needed a Ceylon (make my own breakfast blends).

Well, I guess I am in for a surprise….

wonderful smooth golden cup with honey-sweet aftertaste. No astringency at all.

drank Cardamon Tea by Mahmood Tea
159 tasting notes

After the launch party for our TV show, we hadn’t eaten much, so we stopped at a small afghan place. While waiting, I browsed the shelves and found this in half kilo packs.
The anticipation of the ride home turned to consternation as I opened the packet. It smelt of menthol.
I brewed a pot anyway.
The cardamom smell, previously absent, did come out as the water was poured on.
The first sip was nice, mildly cardamommy.
Then the mentholation hit.
I have no idea what is wrong and why it tastles like mothballs. I only know I have 498grams that I am never ever ever going to drink.
Selling this tea should be an indictable offence.

More compost for the garden? I’ve got a couple of tea that are too old to drink or give away that are meeting that fate this spring. :D


Drink it the next time you have a sore throat, you’ll appreciate the menthol more perhaps.

That’s very practical advice, Heyes. I also thought of offering to people who roll their own cigarettes or who are plagues by moths.
