Cardamon + Honeybush

I often find Rooibos and Honeybush usually do not work well with brewing more than once. Perhaps this is because they are broken into fine pieces, and thus a lot of surface area is exposed so after a brief brewing period, most of the flavor and aroma has already gone out into the cup.

The other day I brewed some honeybush from Adagio teas...and I thought...hmm...maybe I could add something else to it to add more flavor when I re-brew it. So, I added two cardamon pods and a bit of coriander. This is close to my version of a "chai"...I don't like cinnamon in tea, and I love cardamon.

The result was pretty tasty. There was enough flavor left in the honeybush that between it and the spices, I had a cup of flavorful brew. Yay.
