Although the dry leaf has a slightly off-putting, artificial-y scent, the brewed tea is much more palatable. There’s a slightly drying spiciness from the cardamom layered on top of a custardy, eggy vanilla flavor, making for an overall pleasant blend. The green tea base has a minerality and slight grassiness; the fact that this is a green base is a bit surprising—I’d expect these flavors on a black base—but I actually don’t mind it. It’s a nice twist and it makes for a gentler cuppa. I could see myself restocking this one for those times I want something flavorful but mild.
