This reminded me of when i first moved to NY & our Russian friends came over. dh described it as 'Russian tea' where we'd add boiling water to loose tea, put the saucer on top until the leaves sunk the the bottom then drank it... alternating with vodka while eating poppyseed cake & smoking. oh to be young. This is incredibly simple & delicious. I am a huge fan of cardamom. I've been drinking a lot of chai lately so in keeping with the sweetened tea craze, i added a wee 1/2 tsp vanilla sugar. Very good. 2nd cup has no sugar. Not necessary. Thanks, LM! Stop by sometime... made for Sun & Spice Event in the NA/ME & Veggie forums 2/13.
This was a lovely cup of tea. I enjoyed the addition of 2 cracked cardamom seeds. I did not add any sugar or milk. Thank you!
Cardamom, I love it! Thanks
What a lovely way of preparing black tea! I really enjoyed the subtle cardamom flavour, which went so well with the black tea. Mmm!
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this wonderful recipe with us, little!

This is a very nice and comforting tea! I didn't add milk and used sugar as I like the sweet taste with the cardamom. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
I enjoyed this with almond milk and sugar. A nice treat! Thanks! Made for ZWT#6 by a Looney Spoon Phoodie.
A very soothing tea. The cardamom gives it a very smooth taste. Thnx to a fellow Vagabond for sharing her recipe. Made for the Voracious Vagabonds during ZWT 6
I forgot to mention that I was drinking this tea while reading your funny story. It's very good and refreshing. I added a teaspoon of honey in my tea. Thank you again.
Very nice light tea. I really liked it! Simple and fresh tasting. Made for NAME tag.
A wonderful cup of tea! Similarly Kuwaitis add cardamom to their tea but I love this version more as it subtle in taste. More like British tea which is not bitter. I think all the Gulf countries boil their tea bags in the water which I feel ruins it! I used 2 whole cardamom pods cracked, as I love cardamom, and some rice milk to be dairy free. A tea I would make again and again.
