Westholme Tea Company - Black Cardamom
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.
