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,

  2. Pour the tea into cups with sugar or honey, and milk to taste.
  3. Stir, serve and enjoy!

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.
