2 TB for a 125mL gourd, + 2 tsp white sugar.
I’ve posted on the taste and potency of this tisane many times — I really, really like it. Today I added sugar for the first time, having just run out of stevia. Interestingly, I find the white sugar coaxed out a bit more spiciness form the cloves and a bit more vegetal green-ness from the mate. Not a major difference, but certaily noticeable. And really nice.
