After last night’s fiasco with appalling cardamom tea, I was enraged, so I made my own.
Made up some assam, cracked open three green cardamom pods and dropped them in the pot.
And it was a corker. It was as good as the pre-packaged garbage was bad.
Malty of course, but with a lovely overlay. Ahh, good tea with cardamom – simultaneously conjures up the hot dusty desert roads of its origin. and the decadence of the desserts it usually follows.

Liked the imagery in your post. Dislike bitting into a green cardamon pod at the Indian restaurant.

I love cardamom, and will prove it in an hour or two by shooting a cardamom tea video. I love finding soggy whole pods in my indian food and chewing them into oblivion

Glad I am not the only one deeply fond of these. Two pods in a cup of boring green tea make a world of difference.

To me, cardamom and banana are exssential companions. Last night’s dessert was sliced dates, bananas and cashews, lightly coated with yoghurt and sprinkled with my chai sprinkle – powdered cinaamon, cardamom and sugar. Accompanied by a Blue Mountain tea
