Tonight I used one bag and a 12 oz mug. Of course it was weaker but I thought overall it had a truer sugar cookie taste. I did add a packet of Splenda. Next I want to try this in a 8 oz cup. First time was 6 oz. I am looking for that sweet spot. Bonnie said you can buy this year round from Celestial Seasonings. I saw it on Amazon as well. Christmas year round. Woot!
