I remembered to use only one green cardamon pod. Still pretty cardamony but also now gingery. Perhaps I just taste cardamon too strongly? I’m thinking about adding some black tea next time to see what it does to the spiciness. But what kind?
1 cup water. 1 tbsp natural cane sugar. bring to boil. 1 tbsp chai tea leaf. simmer 5. 1 cup milk. bring to boil. turn off heat. let steep 8 min 30 sec.
