Why must Teavana constantly add cardamom to its tea? I really loved the way this smelled in the package (very similar to my favorite – Cha Yen Thai) and after steeping it still smelled delish with fruity notes I hadn’t detected before. It tastes good too but the cardamom sticks out sometimes almost crushing the other flavors. I might pick some of it out so I can taste the rest of the ingredients.

Good, but would be better with a little more balance.

I’m Amanda, and I’m new to the world of tea. I got sucked in by a sample at Teavana and have been exploring ever since. I prefer loose tea but will slum it with the occasional, high quality bag.

I live just outside Chicago with my husband and our dog.
