R19.99

At its core, cardamom imparts a sweet and aromatic taste, reminiscent of eucalyptus with a touch of camphor.

This aromatic quality is coupled with subtle hints of citrus and spicy undertones, giving it a refreshing yet warm essence.

When crushed or ground, its fragrant notes intensify, releasing a deeper warmth that can be likened to ginger or cinnamon but with a floral touch.

Its unique blend of sweetness, spiciness, and a mild peppery kick makes cardamom a standout spice, lending dishes both an invigorating zest and a comforting warmth.
