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.

What a lovely way of preparing black tea! I really enjoyed the subtle cardamom flavour, which went so well with the black tea. Mmm!

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 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.

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.
