If you’ve ever been to a Persian restaurant and ended up falling in love with the tiny glass of fragrant tea, then you need to find a box of Sadaf’s Ceylon Special Blend with cardamom. Not quite as spicy as a chai, the cardamom lends a subtle kick with a sweet finish in this tea. I sweeten mine, because I’m silly that way; it’s even good with milk. But the first time you make this tea, just inhale the beautiful perfume of the cup. It’s fantastic.

Much better with 3 cardamom pods. Mildly, but not unpleasantly astringent. I may try it a bit hotter tomorrow.

Hmm… I’m running out of cardamom pods and this tea really needs them.

I enjoy Special Blend Tea with a couple of cardamom pods. It reminds me of the desserts at Chelokababi, which was just down the street (until we moved, sigh).
