CARDOMOM TEA

This is a simple recipe and has just the right amount of spice to kick start your night or uplift your moral after you’ve stuffed the last piece of pie in your face.

Ingredients:

  1. 4 Tea bags – we recommend a strong blend (red label or Tetley works just fine)
  2. 3 tablespoons of sugar or sweetener of choice.
  3. 4 cups of water
  4. 2 whole cardamom pods, opened and de-pitted.
  5. a small thumb of ginger (literally the size of your thumb – unless youre andre the giant then a half a thumb works)
  6. ½ cup of milk – if you want it creamier than use  more milk

Instructions:

  1. Get the water to a boil and seep the tea bags in the water according to your preference of strength.
  2. Add cardamom and let it simmer for about 3-4 minutes. Then add the ginger.
  3. Add milk and bring to a boil. Just be careful to not have the tea spill over the edge of the pot onto the stove – it will happen quick after you get it to a rolling boil – to avoid a huge mess.
  4. Serves around four people.

The Sweetheart

If you like your tea a little spicier go ahead and add a few cloves or a stick of cinnamon after you seep your tea  bags.
