Cardamom Creme Brulee Black Tea Bags
Smooth and sweet cardamom notes provide a nice balance to the creamy, vanilla-caramel flavor in this smooth black tea. A decadent cup for dessert!
Back by popular demand.
This premium black tea was inspired by classic French crème brûlée infused with the exotic spiciness of fresh cardamom. A splash of warm milk brings out the richness in this cup.
Black Tea has less than half the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee. More about caffeine.
Steeping black tea is easy. Simply heat fresh, filtered water to a rolling boil. Then pour water over tea and steep for 3-5 minutes if using a tea bag or full-leaf.
Black tea, sweet blackberry leaves, natural caramel and vanilla flavors, cardamom seeds

What our Citizens are saying about this great gift of the leaf...
Love,love,love it!!! Right before bed!! Scrumpdillious!!!!
Missed The Mark
The flavors of caramel and vanilla are overwhelming, even over shadowing the flavor of the black tea, with no sign of cardamom at all. I can't even smell cardamom in the dry tea bags, and that was the only reason I purchased it. So if you're looking for a tea that actually has the taste of cardamom, this is not the one.
Agree with everyone here, this tea is wonderful and thank you for bringing it back! I love the subtle sweetness and yummy taste. I never realized it had sweet blackberry leaves in it the whole time I enjoyed it before. Please make this one a keeper!
Not for Cardamom lovers
While this is a lovely tea, tasting very creme brulee-ish with notes of caramel and vanilla, the taste of cardamom is nowhere to be found. I smelled the wet teabag after use and could smell some cardamom, so I know it's in there. The ingredients list "cardamom seeds" which are best simmered for about 15 minutes to extract flavor. I now understand that pairing cardamom seeds with black tea, which can only steep a limited amount of time for best flavor, just doesn't make sense. I bought the tea because I love the idea of cardamom creme brulee so I was greatly disappointed. It is a good creme brulee tea, just not cardamom creme brulee.
Favorite black tea
I'm more of a coffee person than a black tea person, but if I drink coffee in the afternoon it keeps me up, so I've taken to trying different black teas. This is definitely my favorite for most circumstances. It has a nice warm sort of flavor with just a really subtle touch of sweetness. I don't need to add any sugar for my taste with this tea (just splash of cream), whereas most of the "caramel cake" type teas that I've tried are *too* sweet. This is perfect. So glad it's back.
