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.

    Cardamon Tea
    By Carol on September 5, 2019

    Happy Days are here again! I was down to my last brew of Cardamon Tea when I discovered Ahmad Tea. They had me 2 cans delivered within 2 days. This past weekend my grand daughter was home from college and she had her favorite Cardamon Tea for the Labor Day weekend. This tea is good hot or cold, but I prefer making it by the gallon for iced tea. A very distinctive and refreshing flavor on its own. I'm hooked on the mildness and tasty flavor. Thank you Ahmad Tea for coming through for me!

    heavenly flavor
    By ilexfruit on August 30, 2019

    This loose tea delivers heavenly flavor for those who love cardamom-flavored chai teas. I wasn't certain I'd like this tea emphasizing cardamom flavor, so my tea-drinking friends and I were pleasantly surprised, even those who aren't overly fond of chai teas.

    I keep returning to this tea, the cardamon flavor is present but does not take over the flavor.

    The taste not like before
    By Hussein Al dahy on February 13, 2018

    We love this tea but the last two times was not feeling the same taste like before. Also I asked the store he said I think they changed the product quality because many customers returns or changed with another tea .

    Superb flavor
    By Andrejs on January 3, 2017

    This is a truly lovely Middle Eastern tea with just the right amount of cardamom. Suitable as an all-day tea, this soothing elixir does not have too much caffeine for drinking multiple cups. Just don't make it too strong. I use one rounded tablespoon of tea for a 700 ml pot.

    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 11, 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
    By debbier on March 25, 2015

    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.
