So, I opened this and started drinking this a total of four days ago? Well, I think it got me back into tea drinking because I have a little more than 1/4 of the box left. It is really delicious. I have settled on two teaspoons of sugar and a splash of milk for all cups. 3 minutes for a regular mug, 4 for a medium mug, and 5 for my big huge Tardis mug and travel mug.
