Ridiculously cheap tea at the Middle Eastern grocer- I got 400 g for $7
Cardamom blends well with the tea flavor, no hints of bitterness. Tasted just as great on a second steep as well, the cardamom was a little stronger actually.
Smooth, drinkable, a great everyday tea.
i realized the other day that I had all the spices to make my own Chai tea, so I’ve been using this tea to that end. My best blend so far is orange peel, star anise, cinnamon, all spice, ginger, black pepper and a little extra cardamom. I know all spice isn’t a traditional ingredient but I don’t have cloves and it seemed to work fine. The orange peel is a very nice extra touch.
Rating this tea extra high because it’s such an insanely good value if you can find the giant box of it at the Middle Eastern grocer (they also usually have giant tubs of Ahmad Earl Grey too! It’s a favorite of me ma’s)
