I just bought some Brown Crystal Sugarfrom Butiki Teas. It is listed as 2 oz for $3 and 1 lb. for $9.99. This company also has some stellar customer service.

You might have good luck on Amazon. There are tons of options, with very low per pound pricing..especially if you’re willing to get 5 or 10 lbs at a time.


Oh Nuts! online candy/nut store has rock sugar for $6 per lb.. possibly less if you buy in super bulk:

I get mine from Teavana. You can get it by the pound for $8.50 or get 3 pounds for $26.95. If you get the 3 lbs it comes in a really nice storage jar. http://www.teavana.com/tea-products/rock-sugar-honey

Adagio is about a dollar less than Teavana, I think, if you work it out, and they offer both white and brown.

We’ve actually begun the process of making our own rock sugar. The key to making rock sugar, over all the “science” that goes into, you MUST have patience!

If you’re drinking good tea, no reason to add sugar, but is there an Asian market near you? It looks like you live in Southern California, so I think you can find it locally more easily and cheaply than online.
