I've learned two new cuisines in my year so far spent in the South: Southern food, and Indian food. This brings them together.


  1. Bring two quarts of water, with the cardamom pods, to boil in a pot.
  2. Remove from heat and add the tea bags.
  3. Cover and let steep five minutes.
  4. Remove the tea bags and the cardamom.
  5. Put the Splenda or sugar in a gallon pitcher and add the tea.
  6. Fill the pitcher the rest of the way with cold water, chill, and enjoy.

Made exactly as written, but couldn't really detect the flavor of the cardamom. Maybe it's too subtle for my tastebuds? Will try again and use more cardamom next time. The sweet tea was excellent though, so it still gets 5 stars! Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Game.
