Indian Tea

A little spice goes a long way when making tea, Indian style.

Makes 4 servings

1/2 cup water

6 whole cardamom pods

2 cups milk

2 teabags

Combine water and cardamom pods in a pot and bring to a boil. When liquid is boiling, add milk and teabags. When the liquid reaches the boiling point again, turn the heat off and let sit for 5 minutes. Pour into teacups through a sieve to remove cardamom pods.
