It was pretty clear from the package that this tea was NOT for wimps. Oh not from the label, but from the fact that the hermetically sealed foil-lined teabag envelope managed to perfume first my handbag and then the cabinet where it was kept. Good thing I like cardamom (but then again, if I did not, I would not have brought it home). And teabag is filled with an amazing 3.12 gr of tea, this is PG Tips strength territory . The heaviest teabags after that, that i know of, are Mariage Freres with 2.5 gr of tea, but it´s a whole different type of tea. Usual around here is 2 gr per tea bag. And I have bought “gourmet” tea in bags having as little as 1.5 gr in each bag. Here they did not skimp on the tea: 3.12 gr in a tea bag, and it is showed, it brewed strong and nice. Sometimes more is more.
I tried it with some trepidation, and it is much smoother than what I feared. It is, despite the strong cardamom, very british as well underneath the cardamom. But say if you like very british tea and like cardamom, this might be a hit for you
