Rosewater Cardamom Tea


Everyone that knows anything about India knows that we have an unnatural love for tea and for good cause – It’s amazing! This rosewater cardamom tea does not disappoint!

There are an insane number of teas in India and every person has their favorite. My favorite by far is adrak vali chai or ginger tea, with rosewater cardamom tea being a close second. The rosewater adds a light and floral flavor to the tea, while the cardamom brings a heavier aromatic flavor to the tea. Together this balances out to a light summery tea that you can drink by the gallon.

Rosewater is very popular in India! We use it in tea, desserts, cosmetics, lotions, prayer ceremonies, and nearly anything else you can imagine. It has many benefits cosmetically speaking but even ingested it has health benefits. Benefits such as being rich in antioxidants and said to aid in the treatment of indigestion and headaches. Couple that with all of the goodness that goes with cardamom and you have yourself a slam dunk.

I prefer this tea black and hot but you can have it iced or with cream.
