I've been using this formula to make tea, and it hasn't failed me yet. I do use only a 1/4 to 1/3 cup honey since I don't like it too sweet, and it comes out tasting great. Thanks!

Splenda and Truvia are bad for you. Do the research. Really raw honey, on the other hand is very good for you and tastes great. Don't steep for more than 3 minutes. Some places recommend only one minute. I usually only do one minute. Then it is not bitter. Good recipe, thanks. ( I would give it five if it didn't say to use Splenda)

I really wish I weren't bragging about this matter, but at my age I routinely spontaneously combust and being a raging inferno apparently gives my family much entertainment. Thank YOU for the cool-down because THEY are still over there laughing.
