Cinnamon Cardamom tea

i'm having it right now,its fragrant,hot and sweet and i love it.Normally i have it in winter on very cold days,its not winter here though but i still love to have it sometimes,specially when kids r asleep and i can have some time by myself and log in on DC

CINNAMON CARDAMOM TEA(SWEET MILK TEA):


2/3 c water
A little less than 1/2 a c of milk(2% is ok but whole is better for the traditional rich taste).
1 medium stick of cinnamon
2 cardamom pods
1/2(not heaping)tsp Lipton tea
a pinch of salt
Sugar(according to taste)
a couple of sprinkles of cinnamon powder


put water in a pan,add cinnamon and cardamom pods(open them up and put both seeds and pods in),let the water boil on low heat,so the flavors are fully released.When it comes to a boil,after one minute,add tea.Then add salt and milk and as much sugar as u like.For me its one tsp.Let the tea cook on low heat for a couple minutes,until the color turns to a light brown peachish.Remove from heat,strain and pour into your favorite cup.Garnish with some cinnamon powder.Enjoy!

We often drink 'CINNAMON CARDAMOM TEA' but we don't add salt.

I've been drinking Bigelow Vanilla Flavored tea these past few days...sweetened with either french vanilla creme or milk and sugar. Yum.

It is not easy to describe the exact taste of a spice. It has a sweet yet pungent taste and aroma.
