With a medium-bodied wakoucha (Japanese black tea) base, heaps of cardamom, and a sprinkling of rose, this aromatic blend was made to lift the senses. Sourced from Shizuoka, Japan, where the leaves are handpicked by artisan tea farmers, our wakoucha steeps a smooth honey-like flavor that mingles beautifully with spicy and floral elements.
We recommend trying this one as an afternoon tea, with a splash of your choice of milk.

What is a reserve tea? Reserve teas are teas that are offered in limited quantities due to the availability of the tea itself.
I'm a cardamom fan, so this tea is perfect for me. Really well balanced (no flavors overpowering the others) and incredibly smooth, like all of Paru's others.
We have several favorites already, added Cardamom to our cupboard.
I am so glad this tea is back! The smoothness of the black tea paired with the warmth of the cardamom, makes this tea a great way to begin my day. I wish Paru carried it year round.
this is in my favorite top three teas i’ve ever purchased from PARU. great balance of cardamom and rose, its a very special drink to share! i hope this becomes a regular offering at PARU :) i really love this combination
