I am attempting to clear out my cupboard, and I know this tea is at least 5-7 years old. Living on the edge here :)
So I used 2.5tsp/10oz water, in case it has lost flavor to age. 1st steep came out very dark (as expected), but I think I made the right choice in doubling up on the tea. It is a lot less tart than I remember it when I first got it. Tart is about all I can taste until I add a small amount of sugar. After that, the raspberry comes through. Very nice.
2nd steep- starting to wonder the difference between this and Celestial Seasoning’s Raspberry Zinger. If Teavana still sold this one, I might try to do a side-by-side comparison. But moot point now :)
