This tea deserves a better rating, IMO. The flavor just explodes: honey, date, chocolate.They call for a tsb instead tsp, but with that I got three full-bodied brews, the second being my favorite. More patient people could probably get several more. I use natural sugar crystals, it is improved by it and I just prefer it. This is a fantastic value and a great early morning kick start. I prefer a dark, full flavor in the a.m. – but smooth. This one has a touch of astringent edge on the first brew, but just a touch. I might try 3 minutes for the first brew instead of 4. I plan on getting a much larger bag and making this a regular.
