This is a fantastic tea for a strong cuppa! I carry some around with me at all times because I never know when I am gonna be spending a night somewhere different, and I’m wary of their tea.
Flavorwise, it just depends on how you like it:
w/ milk: smooth, easy to drink, nice to the tongue.
w/out milk: Strong, bitter and great for after eating a big meal.
w/cardamom: like a light masala chai, but smooth.
Recipe with cardamom: lightly crush the cardamom with a roller (the wooden thing for dough. a spoon works, too) and put it in the cup with the bag/loose tea. Make sure the cardamom is opened up and you can see the seeds. Let it steep, the cardamom will infuse.
Tastes light and good!
Funny story how I learned of this tea:
I had to take a driving course and the guy was Pakistani. Since I’m a tea nut, we of course talked of tea. he said “there is a good one called Tapal Danedar you’d like a lot.” he then drove me to a new Eastern World Market near me and I bough a box.
He asked me next time I saw him, “you like the tea I recommended?” “oh, it’s fantastic!”
