This tea is amazing. SOOO good! The way I brew it is different than the directions though because when I followed the directions I found that it was very weak and light and I could barely taste it. So I put the water AND the tea in the tea kettle on high heat, then when it comes to a boil it’s done. It comes out nice and flavorful that way. I also use way more tea than it says to for that amount water. :-) I like to sweeten it with either the rock sugar or raw natural sugar.
