Latin: Elettaria Cardamomum
These aromatic seed pods are filled with soothing, relaxing and anti-spasmodic essential oils. Cardamom is a herb that belongs to the ginger family. It produces the best tasting seeds in humid environments. The leaves of a Cardamom plant in the hills of Eastern Sri Lanka. Cardamom's stunning flower precedes the growth of its aromatic pods. Inside this shiny pod, Cardamom's delicious seeds are ripening.
There are two types of Cardamom; green and black. The green variety is most commonly used in Ayurvedic medicine. The harvested Cardamom is dried in the village driers of the Guatemala Cardamom project before being transferred to another facility for final processing. The Guatemala Cardamom project has been organically certified for over 10 years and covers almost 400 hectares of land. Cardamom is much loved at Pukka; in fact they use it in 9 of their tea blends: Revitalize, Relax, Protect, Pleasure, Clarity, Detox and their 3 Chais.
The shade loving Cardamom shrubs grow on small farms often on very steep slopes, intermixed with cloud forest trees. By maintaining Cardamom plants on the slopes of their farms the farmers help prevent land erosion and can make a good living without clearing the land of the cloud forest trees. The Guatemala project has its own ethical trade policy paying an organic differential to the Cardamom farmers at the time of purchase.
Currently almost 200 farmers are participating in the Guatemalan project. The project also helps with loans and grants to finance the building of collection centres, drying facilities and trucks for the transport of the seeds. The infrastructure improvements facilitated by the project enable the Guatemalan farmers to add value to their product, ensure quality and increase their earnings.

Pukka Herbs Frequently Asked Questions
Is it safe for children to drink Pukka herbal teas?
Pukka do not recommend their teas to any child under 1 year old without the advice of a practitioner. This is just a precautionary principle as the herbs can be safely used by anyone but as children's immune systems are still immature they recommend that you take the advice of a practitioner after a face-to-face meeting.
Is it okay to take herbal remedies if I'm about to have surgery?
Pukka advise stopping herbs 7 days before surgery to avoid any complications.
All of their formulas are safe to take for surgery, but due to the associated risk of affecting blood clotting they advise that they are avoided prior to surgery.
Can I drink your teas that have licorice in if I have high blood pressure?
Essentially, Yes. All problems ever associated with licorice have been from eating excessive licorice candy sweets. There is a consensus amongst experts that a safe level of licorice consumption for most people is at least 2.5g per day. The ‘culprit' is considered to be one of licorice's compounds known as Glycyrrhizic acid (GA) that can cause renal sodium retention leading to increased blood pressure in some individuals. The ‘safe' amount of 2.5g per day is arrived at by determining that consuming about 100mg/day of GA avoids any blood pressure effects. The typical GA content of licorice is in the range of about 4% for Glycyrrhiza glabra (European licorice). As the highest percentage of licorice in any of their teas is 25% (Licorice and Cinnamon tea) and the herbs in the teabag weigh a total of 2g, it means that you would have to take 5 cups a day of Licorice and Cinnamon tea to be near to consuming 2.5g of licorice a day and arriving at the 100mg threshold. All of their other teas have less licorice. Please see the information under “Are Pukka teas safe to drink during pregnancy” for more information regarding Licorice and Glycyrrhizic Acid consumption during pregnancy.
