Black Cardamom

Regular price $9.50

Style: Black

Origin: Blended at Westholme

Ingredients: Assam, Cardamom, Vanilla Bean 

Description: Throughout Western and Central Asia, cardamom is used to add a perfumed complexity and sweetness in standard black teas. We chose a bold and malty Assam black tea, combining it with green cardamom pods, lightly cracked to release their astonishing flavour. As a luxurious addition, we also added pure vanilla beans for a subtle natural sweetness. Vanilla and cardamom come together to add just enough creamy taste to the classic malt of the Assam tea. A perfect morning cup, enjoyed on its own or with milk and honey.

Tasting Notes: Naturally sweet and complex on the nose, the pure vanilla bean in this blend adds a lovely, subtle cream to the texture of this tea's aroma and palate. The unique perfume of the cardamom, reminiscent of deep citrus, enhances the strong steep and malt of the Assam tea with freshness on the palate. The linger is luxurious and sweet.

Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup. 100ºC water. steep 3-5 minutes.


*This is the same tea blend as our Dog - Chinese Zodiac Tea*

China has a rich and ancient tradition of producing high quality teas of all varieties, and black tea is no exception. This is where tea culture and industry, as we know it, began nearly 2,000 years ago.

Known as ‘Red Tea’ in China, the tea leaves from the Camellia sinensis sinensis plant are smaller and finer than their Indian counterparts, the Camellia sinensis assamica, and prefer cooler mountainous regions. Usually plucked by hand and gently processed, the end result are exquisitely fragrant teas with lesser levels of astringency and a soft body.

Several Chinese provinces are famous for their regional tea selections: Fujian Province is home to the well-known, pine-smoked Lapsang Souchong, while Keemun tea, the official choice of the British Queen, is produced in Anhui Province. Yunnan province produces the ever-popular varieties of Yunnan black tea and is also the region where China started its tea cultivation.

The organic teas we import are artisanally farmed and crafted. They may change with each harvest season. The same tea harvested at a different time of year and processed by a different tea maker will vary slightly in flavour and finish.
