I went to my cousin’s over the holiday and she gave me this delicious box of Persian tea. It’s the cardamom that makes this one so addicting. <3

“I had this at a friend’s house. It was very pleasant, and the cardamon added a nice something extra on top of the regular ceylon black tea flavor without being overpowering.” Read full tasting note

Good morning everyone. :)) Many thanks to Anna for this generous sample. :)) When I opened the box all I could smell was Cardamon! Wow, what an aroma! The aroma alone scores a 95. Dry tea leaves are a decent size. I put about 1/2 the sample in my glass tea press. The smell of cardamon filled the room. I got three really good steeps from the tea. Good dark brown cup color and aroma. At 2 min the first steep was delicious! I really enjoy teas like this where the base is strong & noticeable, nice cardamon prescence in flavor and aroma. Second steep was at 2:45 to 3:00. Strong aroma and flavor and not bitter. Wow the caffiene was really intense. Third steep was still good at 4:00 boiling. Flavor of tea was weaker, as was the aroma, and flavor of the cardamon. Wet leaves still smelled of cardamon….amazing!
I got at least 30 oz of tea in total! If I tinker with steep times I may be able to get 4 quality cups with the rest of the sample. What a quality tea in every respect! I checked online and the tea is reasonably priced. The website is packed with goodies, and I will definitely reorder this tea in the future.

I prepared it by packing a tea bag and brewing a little over half a pot of tea with it. After, I fished out the tea bag and filled the rest of the tea pot with hot water. Served with some sugar cubes and drunk with a smile.
I really enjoy this tea. The leaves are quite fragrant and have a perfume scent when you smell it from the package. The black tea taste is subtle but the cardamom flavors stings your taste bud in the most delightful manner.
I’m most likely going to hyper all day since I made myself an entire pot of the tea. So worth it.
Have a box of this that’s been sitting around for years – but still good!
Smooth black tea with faint notes of spices. The cardamon flavor becomes stronger as the tea cools down. I underbrewed to avoid possible bitterness and it came out very nice. Would make a good milk chai.

I was only able to drink one cup of this tea because I only had one tea bag that someone gave me. I adored the aroma, cardamom woven into the Ceylon notes. I brewed it a bit strong and couldn’t sweeten it, so it was more bitter than I’d like. However, I believe that brewed less time or with sugar and milk it would be a delightful tea. I will have to try it again to give my final rating. For now, I’ll be conservative.
I love black tea with cardamom. I have to say that my favorite is Alghazaleen (or Doh Ghazal) Cardamom Ceylon blend, but this one will do in a pinch.
I put a little too much tea for the water I had and then steeped a little too long, so the result is a little bitter, but still good. The cardamom flavor is not as strong as Alhazaleen’s version, though. Almost too subtle.
