supports digestion, balances kapha, pacifies vata, decongests lungs Back To Botanicals
Cardamom, Ela in Sanskrit, is sweet, pungent, and warming. It has an excellent balancing effect on kapha and useful in pacifying vata. It’s considered the “Queen of the Spices,” helping to reduce bloating and congestion in both stomach and lungs. 
Known as “True Cardamom,” and native to tropical Southern India, this perennial is a member of the ginger family. True cardamom has been used as a flavoring in both coffee and tea since for millennia, and today, in many other foods and drinks. We love cardamom for its vata-pacifying aromatic qualities and agree that the Queen of Spices is essential to any great chai.
