This is so much better with sugar. It really and properly comes alive. For the record, I’m not usually a person who puts sugar in tea, so for me to do so and then sing praises of the result is a rare thing indeed. I think this cup – 1 tsp of leaf for 3 minutes in boiling water with 1/2 tsp crystal sugar – is better even than the latte I tried first. It’s that good.
It actually properly tastes like liquid strawberry jam now. It’s sweet, fruity, desserty deliciousness.
