Cardamom has a strong, unique spicy-sweet and aromatic taste. It is used whole or ground to add flavour to various dishes, teas, desserts, soups and savouries.
These spices are lovely and fresh and the cardamom is excellent. The citrus notes in cardamom when added to pumpkin soup makes it extra tasty. Of course it goes into curries but I’m also adding it to my baking for a change this winter. Ginger loaf with cardamom (instead of cloves) is great.
The spices that I had ordered were, upon on arrival, the same high-quality I have come to expect from Leena Spices. However once my order was shipped, it took a while before I actually received the spices. The problem was at the courier's end, not Leena Spices. Happily, Leena Spices jumped in and took responsibility for resolving the issue. After multiple emails and phone calls on their part, my order was eventually delivered. I was kept informed of their progress, and was impressed by their friendly and helpful efforts. Full credit to Leena Spices for the great customer service, as well as great spices!
We came across Leena and her wonderful spices at a market in Raglan. It's so good to find great quality at reasonable prices. Highly recommended! Tony
