Pure Ceylon Black tea (OP 1) · Cardamom spice
Loose leaf · From Dimbulla region
Along the southwest windswept coast of Sri Lanka in the district of Ratnapura lies a little known gem of an area featuring a transition from plains to hills. On this lush landscape is a high grown, black tea that is infused with the rich flavour of cardamom. Each leaf is carefully hand-selected to bring you only the highest quality flavour in rich black tea. From the central hills of Sri Lanka comes the cardamom with which the rich black tea is infused. Enjoy the artisan crafted tea, bountifully filled with the Queen of spices, anytime you need a mental vacation.

Majestic Chai (flavored black tea) is delicious
I really enjoy drinking Majestic Chai (flavored with pure Cardamom spice). This is so true to taste, with the black tea and the cardamom both being sourced directly from Sri Lanka. The black tea is great for waking up in the morning with the authentic flavor of real cardamom adding a luxury hint of flavor. I highly recommend this tea.
A unique, smooth cardamom tea!
Thanks so much for the samples, Teakruthi! This chai is intriguing, as it focuses mostly on cardamom. I've never seen a chai blend with only cardamom and really, there aren't many teas with cardamom at all. There are plenty of cardamom pods here, cut in half, with the lovely Ceylon black tea base. The Ceylon is medium bodied and lets the flavor of the cardamom be prominent while itself being sweet and smooth. The fragrance and flavor of cardamom is definitely present and strong. The second steep, just as much cardamom. It's very calming, sweet, creamy, mellow. It's a nice change for the taste buds once in a while, instead of the "all the spices" sort of chai all the time. Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons for a full mug // 16 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep Steep #2 // just boiled // 3 minute steep
The Light and Bright Side of Cardamom
This tea surprised me. Normally when I think of cardamom I think bold, pungent, and spicy, but this tea must use higher quality cardamom than I am used to. Even from opening the bag I knew I was in for a different sort of treat: the aroma is wonderfully floral and citrusy with a hint of spice. That aroma carried through into the brewed tea as well. The flavor is fine and bright, with gentle floral and spicy notes atop a smooth and subtly malty base. Simply delicious both hot and cold! I brewed it as directed for three minutes and got two flavorful cups.
I love the flavor. The fruitiness is refreshing hot or cold.
