    UmmBinat's Note:

    I just tried this tea and it was lovely with Earl Grey. Not liking the idea of ground cardamom in tea I switched the recipe to using the full pods and steeped them with my tea leaves. Originally posted for ZWT7, Africa. Modified from, www.congocookbook.com.

      I crushed my cardamom pods with my mortar and then ground the seeds into a powder, I also floated a couple of whole pods in my tea pot. It had a very nice and exotic taste and a wonderful aroma. Made for the wonderful Witchin Kitchen team for ZWT #7.

      I used orange pekoe black tea bags and added almond milk to my tea cup. I also made a large batch in my sun tea jar. Flavor was fantastic and very exotic. Thanks for posting! Made for Veg 'n Swap tag!

      I used Earl Grey, something that I always keep on hand, and sweetened lightly with Splenda. Loved the cardamom added, it really added that something extra. I enjoyed this very much.
