The story of Cardamom...

Cardamom, sometimes called Grains of Paradise, is a pungent, aromatic herb first used around the eighth century, and is a native of India. It was probably imported into Europe around A.D. 1214. Cardamom is also a mental stimulant, so you get the alertness provided by caffeine without the telltale jitters.

Today, cardamom is cultivated in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Guatemala, Mexico, Thailand and Central America.
