I would definitely recommend this tea blend. I love the individual teas on their own as well. My opinion is that you should buy the 2 teas separately, as opposed to when they sell the blend together already mixed in the bag. It tastes better when you do it yourself because in the store they mix it by weight but at home you do it by teaspoon so the ratios actually get screwed up due to maharaja being heavier. Anyway, I drink this blend hot, or iced. No milk, and hardly ever add sugar. Occasionally I add rock sugar, but just a tiny amount. I do 2 tsp of each tea in 16 ounces of near boiling water, for about 4 minutes. And it is perfect. Yummy. You can resteep it but it will be weak. Oh, and they stopped using artificial flavor in the tea even though their website still has it listed, they did not update the website yet.
