This is my everyday tea right now. I brew it in my iPot teapot with water heated on the stove in a tea kettle. I let the water come to a full boil and pour over the tea leaves. This tea steeps for 3-5 minutes and produces a yummy, tasty, refreshing tea. I like my tea sweetened with sugar. I have not tried this tea with milk or cream but it seems hearty enough to stand up to either.
