Cardamom - 1.5 oz. 

A fruit native to India, this spice does wonders for sweet and savoury alike. Having been a popular spice in Asia and the middle east for thousands of years, it is said to have been introduced to other countries by Vikings. 
Cardamom adds a nutty, sweet, mildly peppery flavor to chai, and roasted cardamom can add depth to the flavor of your favorite curry, bread, pastry, pilaf, chilly, and more. 
We source our cardamom from Guatemala. Cardamom is best when used fresh, so we recommend buying whole pods and grinding them as needed. 

Our herbs and spices are synergistically sourced, we aim to cultivate environmental stewardship, and respect cultural identity! 

How to use : Before adding to any recipe, you can remove and crush the seeds from the pods. 
For tea infusions, toss the crushed pods into your brew before adding the chai blend.
