I thought I didn’t like kava, but I wanted to give this tea a chance before tossing it to make room for other teas. I also don’t care for anise flavors to the licorice in it made me wary. But this tea is really pleasant. The cardamon is the most clear part of the flavor for me, but the tea isn’t super cardamony. It’s got a mild sweetness to it, and tastes like northern european spices, like norse dishes. It’s lovely.
