Cardamom is a spice that's often used in both sweet and savoury dishes, thanks to its warm and slightly sweet flavor. Its unique taste is almost indescribable, with hints of citrus, mint, and even a touch of floral sweetness. When added to a warm drink like an oat latte, cardamom can create a cozy and comforting sensation that's perfect for chilly days or when you need a little pick-me-up. The spice has also been linked to several health benefits, including aiding digestion and reducing inflammation, making it a great addition to any diet.
