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.

Great cup of tea! I love cardamom and would actually even add more next time. Made with Earl Grey, but going to try with Irish Breakfast tea also!

I really enjoyed this flavorful tea. I love cardamom. I let it steep for 15 minutes for a full bodied pot of gold. The honey was a nice addition. Made for ZWT 7 Witchin Kitchen

Made this pretty much as given, with Earl Grey, 1 tablespoon of honey per final cup, & with milk with 2% fat! Very enjoyable cup-a-tea, we thought! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

MMhh! Enjoyed this tea with milk; trying it hot and chilled. I used black Indian tea and the sugar option.
Cardamon is one of my favorite spices and this combination is something sooo simple but sooo good! Thanks a lot for posting this recipe and let know the people how they can prepare such a great drink!
Done for PRMR.

I used Earl Grey. This is quite good but I was unable to find the whole pods so ended up using the powder.
