Strong is only 5 min? Wow, I see 7-10 listed on some.

AmazonV

yes, we tend to use custom time a lot

Cofftea

Yeah, I would too if that’s what they consider strong for herbal:) It’s just not quite custom enough for me yet.

Bio

I am The Devotea USA. I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).
