While making my two batches of Nisu, a braided Finnish Cardamom sweet bread, I found myself with a couple extra handfuls of shelled cardamom.

Here is my recipe for a great, fast cup of home made chai:

1 bag of black tea
A teaspoon of cardamom (fresh out of their pods)
one black peppercorn
a pinch of cinnamon
a pinch of pinch of nutmeg
a cup and a half of milk

Simmer all together until warm. Should be the color of caramel when the tea bag is brewed and flavored with the spices. Add a sugar to taste and serve!
