When the weather starts to turn cold, I like to add something warm and spicy to my tea, like ginger and cardamom. A big thermos of this is just the thing for a long afternoon of raking leaves. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho

"At the store I bought the wrong spice! So I didn't have Cardamom but used cinnamon it it's place. It turned out great and I loved it. Next time I will be using more honey though b.c. I love the sweet taste of it and would have loved to have had more of it in this tea."

"This was a tasty and soothing way to unwind after a hectic day. It took only about 15 minutes to prepare and the combination of spices was just right. I like things a bit sweeter, so I added a teaspoon of sugar to each cup. In the future I will probably use more honey than the recipe calls for."
