From the Lewis and Clark TTB.
While vanilla flavoring is prominent enough, the cardamon aspect isn’t so strong. I can taste it, and the aftertaste is certainly a little spicy (it’s in the back of my throat), but it’s not enough for me. When I see spice on label I expect spice.
I hope it’s alright if my dad had a serving (there should be enough in the packet until the box is done traveling). He loves masala chai, and he feels the same way about it “needing to be more peppery.”
