This loose-leaf cardamom black tea fills the room with its heady scent. Its deep brown color is visually appealing and the rich cardamom flavor is heavenly. Enjoy it hot with or without milk or as a traditional Indian chai.

Tea Preparation

The quality of water used has an impact on the quality of the tea. Always use freshly drawn water or filtered water. 


Heat fresh water to a rolling boil or to a temperature of 212F using an electric hot water heater or a stove top kettle.

Infusion Time

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.

Once the water reaches the appropriate temperature, it should be poured immediately over the tea bag.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.

Caffeine Level

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.

Cardamom Flavored

This is a black tea with cardamom flavoring, no evidence of cardamom pods. It's an earthy tea.

New Favorite

Classic favorite, but they had given me a a few sample tea bags and the hot mango black tea will be a new favorite.

Love it

Never had cardamom tea before, glad I gave it a try!! I love the tin it came in, and loose leaf is the way to go. Great, fresh quality.

Supper delicious

I love this tea! Supper delicious!

Nice tea

I have always been a fan of Ahmad teas. I decided to try out the cardamom flavor on a whim, and found that it tastes quite good! The flavor is of course quite subtle and I do wish that the cardamom flavor was a bit stronger, but this is a pleasant tea that won't overpower anything you might serve it with. Can the tea substitute a chai? My Indian ancestors would likely disagree--the flavor is far too mild and lacks the robust spiciness of a chai. But if you consider it a mild-mannered Western cousin of the bold classic Indian chai, then it performs quite well!
