      Nice! I saw this in "How It All Vegan" and, lucky for me, you have many of the recipes from that book posted here on 'Zaar! I made this with mint as suggested, and I was out of soymilk so I had to make this with cow's milk (2%). I didn't find the cardamom taste particularly strong, actually, I thought that it was just enough to provide flavor without being overpowering. I added just short of 1 Tbs sugar for a half recipe. Like Anu, I don't typically drink my tea sweetened, but I think that the amount of sweetener used is important and should not be omitted or reduced to make this really taste like Thai tea. I must mention- Recipezaar must have automatically turned the word "sweetener" into "artificial sweetener", however this is not what the recipe in the book was calling for. In "How It All Vegan" the recipes call for "sweetener" (or "liquid sweetner" if the recipe requires) meaning, you may use the vegan sweetener of your choice for the recipe- that is, options such as maple syrup, brown rice syrup, date sugar, turbinado sugar (white sugar is often bleached/processed using animal bones and therefore often not considered a vegan product)... by the way, honey is not a vegan sweetener- it is an animal product, as it is produced by bees. Anyhow, the point is that this recipe is not suggesting you add NutraSweet- it is simple suggesting you use whatever sweetener you prefer. So- This was a nice version of Thai tea. Quite sweet (but Thai tea is by nature), the cardamom was a nice touch and it was just creamy/milky enough, although I think a thicker milk (or "milk") product might be nice- like condensed milk (or you could make Sweetened Condensed Milk #22881 and even use powdered soymilk if you want to keep this vegan and omit the sweetener in the recipe). I may try this with Orange Pekoe soon- that is just a type of black tea and it would provide a very different flavor than mint tea. I'll update this review on the flavor of that variation of this recipe, when I try it. A nice tea, though! Thanks for posting the recipe.

      This was a nice change from ordinary tea. I used peppermint tea, and added 2 Tbsp. honey instead of the artificial sweetener. It was my first time using cardamom, and personally I think I prefer my tea without it, but if you like that flavor you'll really enjoy this tea!

      Light, fragrant, and really refreshing! I made this for myself alone (selfish, huh? :-) because I had just one tea bag at hand. I don't usually sweeten my coffee/tea drinks, so I left out the sweetener. I used 2 freshly ground cardamom pods, and skim milk. My mom had some of this and absolutely loved it, 'coz she's a tea-freak! :-) Thanks for this recipe!
