"Another goodie from asiaone's website. This is adapted from 'Juices and Tonics' by Elsa Petersen-Schepelern. This recipe is Pakistani-inspired according to the author. Cardamom is a powerful soothing agent for upset stomachs (as like ginger)."

"Very Enjoyable! This reminds me of the yoga teas. No sugar needed.Loved the flavor of a hint of warming citrus."
"Makes an enjoyable cup of tea. I prepared this with gunpowder green tea, two ways: first, using a tea strainer, and the second time putting the tea directly in the pot. The first way makes for a milder taste (the cardamom taste is more apparent), but both are good. I would caution that teapots do come in different sizes, so as this makes two cups of tea, make sure you only add two cups of water or you'll have a much- weakened tea. Thanks for posting!"
"I was actually surprised at how well the cardamom and green tea flavors went together. I've had green tea with lemon, plum, orange and other numerous other things I can't think of right now, but cardamom never occured to me! I liked this with a touch of honey. Cardamom adds a touch of warming sweetness to the typically somewhat-bitter beverage of green tea! I'm sure this would make green tea more palatable to people who don't care for it. Really lovely combination. Will definitely make again."
