I was making some Darjeeling tea this afternoon while browsing the tea recipes on Zaar when I came across this one. As I had everything and the water was just coming to a simmer I got busy and put this together. It's wonderful. Very fresh and clean tasting with the citrus and spice coming through very nicely. I steeped it for 7 mins and the aroma was lovely during that time I used Splenda 2 to 1 with the honey. Perfect.
