Default Define Cardamom

OK folks. I read the section here on mixing Shisha for flavor combinations. The Cardamom sounded interesting, so I ordered some. I unpacked it and it almost smells like Eucalyptus. So, I have not been brave enough to try it in the Hookah because of it's totally strong smell.

Can someone, from experience, define this flavor for me and what is the best thing(s) to mix with it?

Real Caramon is in the mint family i believe. at least it has a spicey minty type flavor. the Nekhla cardomon is wicked strong and does not taste like the real thing. It smells like and taste like Vick salve.

Great smoke if you have a cold but honestly i think its too strong to smoke, even mixed

I disagree.I drink arabic coffee w/cardamom(an najjar) almost daily and the al nakhla sheherazade cardamom is right on the money as far as flavor. Unfortunately, like you point out, it's UNBELIEVABLY strong. I can't think off anything this could mix well with other than maybe an arabic coffee flavor. Not an entirely bad smoke, but just very strong. BRACE YOURSELF!!!
