This is a 5 Star recipe. I've been enjoying this recipe for more than 35 years. The only change I make is: I grate the ginger root, omit the black tea (this tea is perfect without the caffine) and I add milk to individual servings - along with the recommended honey! The best tea ever!!!


  1. Bring water to boil in a 3-4 quart pot.
  2. Add cloves and boil for one minute.
  3. Add cardamom pods (to better release flavor, crush or split pods), peppercorns, cinnamon sticks and gingerroot.
  4. Cover and simmer for 1-2 hours (longer = stronger).
  5. Add black tea (can use decaf).
  6. At this point you can cool the tea, strain it and refrigerate. I usually let it cool over night before straining.
  7. Or strain immediately and add the milk, return to boil and immediately remove from heat (or it will boil over).
  8. Add sweetener to taste (we like honey).
