Does anyone here like green tea from Pakistan?

Does anyone on this site like green tea from Pakistan?

I first got into it since an Afghan restaurant I would go to would sell it. It's called Peshwari kahwa, or qehwa, and it's drank after a meal, and either plain or sometimes they add a cardamom pod but no milk unless they're going to make a Pakistani milk chai or pink salt tea.

Never had it. Cannot say I am motivated to try it either. 8)

It tastes good. It goes best with or after a meal of Afghan, or Pakistani food.

I recently bought some of this green tea, and it's pretty good.

It goes well when mixed with green cardamom pods.

I've had both the Peshawari qehwa/Kawah, and Tapal's cardamom green tea.

The cardamom and green tea help your digestion after a large meal.

I had some that was a gift from someone...didn't much care for it. The tea was very dusty, which really turned me off. I might make my own with better green tea at some point!

Sure. I like green tea; I like chai. Put them together, and they're great! :D
