Though rare for me, I found that I wasn’t in the mood for coffee one day this week. But I wanted something cold, bold, and flavorful. This glass hit the spot.
Start with 8 ounces of cold water in a sauce pan and add…
3 tsp loos leaf black tea
1/2 cinnamon stick
1 knob or 1 tbls fresh ginger
3 cardamom pods
5 black peppercorns
2 tbls brown sugar
Simmer on high for 10 minutes. You want to the liquid to reduce slightly making a strong infusion. Let it cool completely.
Pour through a mesh or cloth strainer into your glass filling 2/3 full.
Add some cold milk or dairy substitute to fill the glass and enjoy!
