cardamon pods, lightly crushed
vanilla bean, cut into 1" pieces
tablespoons brown sugar
tablespoons black loose leaf tea
In a small sauce pot, heat the milk and water to a boil. Add all other ingredients, decrease heat to simmer, put a lid on the pot and let steep for 4 minutes. Make sure you've warmed some cups (I love traditional tiffin tea cups for this) with boiling water. Once the timer dings, strain the tea mixture immediately into the warmed cups. Enjoy with a small cookie or little sweety.
