Ginger Cardamom Tea

I like to add a little spice to my tea, which is why I mix in the ginger and cardamom. Kick up your feet and relax with a steaming mug full of this comforting drink. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho

    At the store I bought the wrong spice! So I didn't have Cardamom but used cinnamon it it's place. It turned out great and I loved it. Next time I will be using more honey though b.c. I love the sweet taste of it and would have loved to have had more of it in this tea.

    This was a tasty and soothing way to unwind after a hectic day. It took only about 15 minutes to prepare and the combination of spices was just right. I like things a bit sweeter, so I added a teaspoon of sugar to each cup. In the future I will probably use more honey than the recipe calls for.
