This Iced Cardamom Tea with the addition of lemon juice and maple syrup (or honey) is a refreshing summer drink. And you can absolutely skip the sweetener, too!Jump to Recipe
I’ve been thinking a lot recently.
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.
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!
Iced Cardamom Tea
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!
