Cardamom Products

Cardamom originates from wild plants located in the Western Ghats in Southern India, growing in such abundance that this region became known as "Cardamom Hills". Considered one of the world's oldest spices, cardamom was used by the Ancient Egyptians for medicinal purposes, in rituals and for embalming. They used to chew cardamom pods to clean their teeth and to keep breath fresh. 

Cardamom is a unique spice in its diversity to flavour both sweet and savoury dishes. These fragrant and spicy pods have woody notes with a citrus like undertone - similar to ginger but without the sharpness. Cardamom is extensively used in curries, garam masala,chai and rice dishes and partners exceptionally well with ginger and turmeric (both being from the same family). Originally exported to Scandinavia by the Vikings, it remains a popular flavouring there for many recipes such as mulled wine and glogg, sweet pastry and bread dishes.

Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

These cardamom pods can be used in cooking or crushed and utilized as an aid to digestion.

Serving:

Crush 1 teaspoon of seeds with a pestle and mortar, and then pour over 1 cup of boiling water, leave to infuse for 15 minutes, drink 3 times per day.

  • Produced to GMP standards.
  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.
  • Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
  • Re-sealable air tight, foil pouch.
  • 100% pure botanical ingredients, absolutely nothing added.

Manufacture Process

Once the pods are ripe they are handpicked and winnowed to remove any dust or dirt particles. They are then washed and all the stalks removed before being dried to retain a moisture content of around 10%. The drying temperature is not set too high as this affects the taste and quality of the finished product. After the cardamom has been graded the pods are then made ready for shipping. Indigo Herbs Cardamom Pods are of the highest grade and make a great addition to the kitchen.

Fantastic company
I’ve been ordering from Indigo Herbs for over a year and they are my go-to for all my supplements. Their prices are competitive and they ship super fast. I’ve ordered a few things including coconut oil, Maca powder and Baobab powder. Everything is organic and of high quality. I love the packaging too which is resealable once opened.
