I’ve gone through almost all of the bag of this without having made any notes! The horror! There is a some cardamon spicy flavor in taste and scent. Adding sugar perks it up a bit. Adding cream brings out the pistachio flavor, but dampens the spice, which is mostly in the scent right now. Overall I’m feeling like this is a nice cup, a fun experience, but not an I must stock up on it kinda tea. I have a cup or more to decide.
