Iced Cardamom Tea

Iced Cardamom Tea | Havocinthekitchen.com

I’ve been thinking a lot recently.

I’ve been asking your one simple question. Again and again. Twice. Here. And here.

You’ve agreed with my concerns, but you haven’t given any suggestions, my friends!

How could we stop inevitably coming fall or at least prolong this summer?

Finally, I’ve got an answer! This should work.

And it’s so simple. We’ve got to ban fall. Yup, you got it right! We’re going to boycott it! Okay, I acknowledge prohibiting the whole season could be a unachievable thing, but at least we can postpone its coming. Besides, fall has a few good features to fully get rid of it. For instance, it provides pumpkins, apples, and beautiful leaves which any food blogger could use for their props. It has Halloween, Thanksgiven, and turkeys. So we cannot completely ban it. Agree?

But three months are the way too many. That would be great to have the summer days up to the end of October. Thus, November would be for making pumpkin pies and stuffing turkeys. And December is a vitally significant month because all we will be cooking Christmas food.

Sounds reasonable.

If you agree with my point of view, you should just sigh a petition, in the comment field below.

But since it hasn’t been supported by you yet, I’m still a bit anxious about all summer recipes I may not be able to post in the remaining summer days. I cannot waste this essential time. That’s why I’ve got another refreshing summer idea!

I have posted two lemonade ideas (search in the catalogue), and this is time for a glass of cold tea!

At the beginning of June, I occasionally bought a box of black cardamom tea which I had never tried before. It turned out to be so delicious that few weeks later I thought why not make iced tea? Iced Cardamom Tea!

Deal! I opted for green tea, and I think it works with cardamom even better! Basically, that’s it – I don’t count water, lemon juice, and some maple syrup as was recommended in one recipe by the spiced buddy David. Indeed, maple syrup could be eliminated at all or substituted for some sugar or agave syrup. Just 5 minutes of work and a few hours of chilling, and delicious, refreshing, and (I am not afraid of saying this word in this particular case. Well, I’m never afraid of saying it any time, as you might have noticed) sophisticated cold tea is ready!

Spoiler: If you love cardamom, stay tuned. I’m having a kick on it, and you will find a few other summer ideas very soon!

  5. First of all- insert my signature here- petition signed.
    Second of all, you said “I was thinking…” and I could help but giggle and think to myself, “uh oh. Hope he doesn’t hurt himself!” Lol. (Insert sticking my tongue out at you here.)
    Third, I love this green tea! Green tea ALWAYS makes me think of my dad. He used to drink a gallon of the stuff daily. He swore by it. Never have I thought of adding cardamom… because I’m blonde and clearly not as clever as you!! This sounds like a wonderful addition, Ben! I’m totally going to make this. And sit on my new deck, look up at the sky, and cheers my dad ♡ thanks for sharing this, my friend. I’m super excited over this one!!! ♡

  6. Wait…you can’t ban the Fall. No way! That’s my favorite season of the year! Well, I do agree that Fall leads into Winter, and now that I live way up here in upstate New York, winter is not nearly as much fun anymore. Either way, I’m all about this iced cardamom tea…what a fun flavor combo! And I love adding maple syrup as the sweetener here. Thanks for the shout-out! I hope you guys are having an awesome weekend…long live Summer (and Fall)!
