Oh I did so enjoy this. Coming from a land that drinks a lot of tea I was a bit unsure about placing the sugar in at Step 2. As there is only me drinking tea in the house I halved the recipe. I am suffering from a severe cold at the moment and the tea gave me a good lift. I will certainly keep making it and I am sure it would work well in summer as a cold tea. Thanks Sharon
