Black tea, cardamon flavoring
Water The quality of water used as an impact on the quality of the tea. Always use freshly drawn water or filtered water. Heat water to the recommended temperature using an electric hot water heater or a stove top kettle. Temperature Heat fresh water to rolling boil or to a temperature of 212F. Loose Leaf Use the infuser of your choice. Measure 1 teaspoon of tea per person. For a stronger brew preference, add an additional teaspoon for the pot. Infusion Time Once the water reaches the appropriate temperature, it should be poured immediately over the tea leaves. Keep the teapot covered to retain heat. Time steeping carefully and infuse for 5-7 minutes. When the tea is done steeping, immediately remove the tea and lightly stir.
This black tea has more caffeine than teas in our green tea range. It's important to keep in mind that brew time accounts for the primary influence over a tea's caffeine content.

    The best!
    By Maria N. on January 10, 2016

    We were given this tea as a gift, and we love it so much we just bought two more tins! It's the most delicious tea (and we've tried many different kinds). The cardamon flavor isn't overpowering; just the perfect hint of it. The black tea has a nice strong flavor, which is never bitter. The lovely smell fills the house as it's brewing. Such a nice treat every morning (and afternoon)!

    Versatile Tea
    By Ginnie on July 12, 2015

    I bought my first tin in Suliamani Kurdistan Iraq. It has a rich aroma but does not lose its essential tea flavor as some chai teas do from all the added spices. I drink this tea Kurdish style (small tea glasses, tiny spoon, and pour into a tea saucer for drinking). I may sweeten every other glass with one tiny spoonful of raw cane sugar and enjoy a whole pot at a time.
    This will sound heretical, but when I relocated, space was limited in my suitcase so I combine what was in this tin (about half remained) with about half of that as much of remaining green tea with rose petals. Instead of a mess, it makes for a very nice special brew especially if you like the tangy notes of a well-steeped green tea.

    love this tea

    recently i had lunch at an Iraqi restaurant in columbus ohio. they served what they called iraqi hot tea. it was the most delicious tea i have ever tasted. usually i am just an ice tea drinker, but this tea has made a hot tea convert out of me. after lunch i went to the nearest arabic grocery store and bought a tin of the cardamon tea, now i brew a cup every afternoon. the cardamon flavoring is very subtle and just right.
