Ginger Cardamom Tea

Ginger and Cardamom Tea – makes about two cups

3 c water

1/2 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and roughly chopped

12-15 cardamom pods, cracked with a mortar and pestle

2 t raw sugar, honey, or agave syrup

1 T loose black tea of your choice

1/3 c half and half

Heat the water in a sauce pan until just boiling and reduce to a simmer.  Add the ginger, cardamom, and loose tea and allow to simmer for a few minutes (the longer it simmers, the stronger the tea so you may have to adjust the sugar and/or half and half).

After the tea has simmered for a few minutes, add the sugar and the half and half.  Allow the heat to come back up.  Strain into a cup and enjoy!

NOTE:  Feel free to adjust ingredients to get flavoring you prefer.
