I found this on the web representing Tanzania. I have found that Africa consumes a lot of tea! Posted for ZWT.

Nice. I did use whole cardamom pods which I bruised but I didn't taste them much. Maybe it should be cardamom seeds in the same amount or even ground cardamom? I simmered Lipton Orange pekoe, Yellow Label tea bags less time as I would find it too strong for the full amount stated, I did simmer the spices in the tea for the full 10 minutes though. I used homemade almond milk to make this dairy free. Made for ZWT7 Africa, for my team, Food.Commandos
