As I type this post, I am sipping Ahmad Tea's Cardamom tea - a delicious warm brew that is perfect for the current weather - makes me forget the wintry snap and brings back memories of India. In most Indian homes you will find powdered Cardamom which is used to flavour tea. I have grown up drinking spiced and flavoursome tea. Even now I use Cardamom and Ginger powder to flavour my morning tea. Well, moving on, I was recently contacted by Ahmad Tea and was sent some of their teas for review. And they are also hosting a giveaway for my readers. More about the giveaway at the end of the post, first I will share my views on the teas that I tried.
First up we have Mint Mystique which is a lovely blend of green tea, enhanced with the aroma of mint. I have tried this tea both hot and cold and enjoyed it in both cases though I would recommend trying it iced. It offers a more refreshing experience that way. The combination of mint and green tea is lovely - it has a nice balance of both the flavours. If you like mint tea or are interested in trying out green tea then I would recommend Mint Mystique for its subtle and natural flavour.
The Detox tea is an infusion of natural herbs, roots and leaves with Ginger and Peppermint. It also has Fennel, Dandelion, Birch leaves, Rosemary, Nettle and Sweet Blackberry. That's a lot of herbs but surprisingly all were complementary to each other. It is a very harmonious blend and makes for a pleasant drink. One of the nicer detox teas that I have tried.
And finally my favourite of the trio - the Cardamom tea. It has a very fine taste of Cardamom - not dominant, subtle yet rich in taste. I enjoy my Cardamom tea with milk and this one offers the perfect warming experience. It is a very lovely blend that I would recommend with no hesitation.
