"This spiced non-alcoholic tea infused with cardamom, nutmeg, and black pepper is warm and comforting, and really good with a sweet treat! It takes a little bit of work to make this, but I always think it's worth it."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

In a saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Add the black tea leaves (or tea bags), crushed cardamom pods, ground nutmeg, and ground black pepper. Reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for about 5 minutes to infuse the flavors.

Step 2

Remove the saucepan from heat and strain the tea to remove the tea leaves and cardamom pods. Return the strained tea back to the saucepan.

Step 3

Stir in the honey or sugar while the tea is still warm, adjusting the sweetness according to your taste preference.

Step 4

Add the milk to the saucepan and heat the tea mixture over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until it is heated through. Do not boil.

Step 5

Once the tea is hot, remove it from the heat and pour it into mugs or cups.

Step 6

Optional: Sprinkle a pinch of ground cinnamon on top or garnish each cup with a whole cardamom pod for an extra touch of flavor and presentation.

This is what tea is all about. Lovely flavor with a good balance of spices. I let all the ingredients just sit and simmer in a pot and pour it directly over a small sieve right into my tea cup. As it sits the flavors become more and more enhanced if that’s what you like, as I do. Thanks so much, NE Lady for sharing. Made it for The AmaZ'ing Race 2023.

Yum! I made this to take to work this morning. After enjoying a small cup with breakfast, I put the rest in my travel mug and was able to enjoy sips of this wonderful tea all day. The cardamom flavor was lovely.
