When feeling down make this warming tea Drink hot with a little milk twice a day to ward off coughs and colds. In the Middle East and Turkey, green cardamom powder is used as a spice for sweet dishes as well as traditional flavouring. In Arabic, cardamom is called al-Hayl. South Asia green cardamon is often used in traditional Indian sweets and in tea, or chai, a common ingredient in Indian cooking, and is often used in baking in Scandinavia.

Mmm, so very, very yummy! I have never before made my own spice tea, but this was soooooo good! Very spicy, hot and sweet at the same time. I used brown sugar sticks, made especially for sweetening black tea and that added a nice flavour. But honey would be great, too I think. Ill try that next time. What a lovely winter warmer beverage! Made and reviewed for the Tea Time Event in the Photo Forum February 2010.
