A friend went hiking up Kilamanjaro and took my hiking poles. She returned with a package of Spiced Tea Cardamon from D&J Distributors. No, I didn’t typo that but I would normally write cardamom. It was packaged in a plastic wrapping inside a lovely blue fabric. I emptied the package into an old tea container. The tea leaves are a fine granular type. The wrapper indicates that it is from Subsistence farms in Tanzania Highlands.
The tea brewed up a dark with a strong malt scent. I definitely taste the cardamom with a slight astringent ending. I drank it as is but I think my next cup I will add some honey or sweetened non-dairy “milk”.
