Method

 
First, make your 'tea' using the cinnamon, cardamom, lemongrass, and mint and the boiling water.

Leave to steep for 5 minutes. Then strain, add in the cool water and leave to cool completely before filling up your glass with ice, and adding in the rum, and a squeeze of lime and extra mint if you like.
