Steeped 1 teabag in 9 oz boiling water for 1 min; added 2 tsp white sugar and one tsp evaporated milk. Strong, drinkable, slightly astringent but not to the point of being bitter. I’m VERY glad I read the notes first before steeping, as my typical 4-5 min black tea steeping would have rendered this undrinkable. Even after 30 seconds it looked dark enough by my normal standards.
I surely didn’t need to buy this tea, but I’ve been curious about it, and it was BOGO at Harris Teeter, and therefore half price for one 40ct box. $2.50 seem like an irresistible price based on the prices I’ve seen elsewhere for one box ($5-8, I think?). It will probably be a good base for cold brewed iced tea too if I can get the steeping time/# of bags right. (Actually that will be a project for DH as he’s the sweet tea maker of the household.)
