East African Cardamom Tea

East African Cardamom Tea created by Outta Here

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, www.congocookbook.com.

    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!

    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.<br/>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!<br/>Done for PRMR.
