I bought 10lbs and I'll buy more

Absolutely delicious. It brings tea-drinking to a whole new level - it enhances the natural flavours and complexities of tea. I've bought 10lbs and I'll buy more once that supply depletes.

When most people try Teavana for the first time, it is in the Teavana shops. In the Teavana shops, the sample tea is, in fact, sweetened with German Rock Sugar.
However, I have tried for months to perfect my tea blends. thinking that the samples in the Teavana store are unparalleled - I figured I needed the German Rock Sugar to perfect their taste, as recommended by a Teavana employee.

So, I bought a pound of this tasty delight and added it to my tea. It made a very subtle difference in the flavor profile. A difference not nearly worth the price, as it was hardly noticeable.

The tea loser that I am, I ran a tea tasting test. A tea sweetened with German Rock Sugar vs. it's placebo counterpart. Nine times out of ten, no one noticed a difference.

Personally, I either sweeten my tea with Honey, or just straight up cane sugar.

Spawns sweet dessert teas

By akane

from Eastcoast, USA

Pros

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Dessert Tea

      There's a time and a place for uber indulging flavorful blended teas with this sweetener. I usually favor tea blends at its virginal state but moments call for candied dessert teas. On those occasions I reach for brown sugar or rock sugar. An even teaspoon of the caramelly rock sugar will do.

      Sugar From Beets

          Best Uses

            I know nothing about sugars but I know what I like to taste. This Rock Sugar is made from Beets, I was told. It certainly has a wonderful natural taste. It doesn't have that harsh taste you get with cane sugar. It sweetens without changing the taste of the tea what so ever. It is well worth the price and it is very good for baking. I grind it up in the coffee bean grinder when I need to. It is a very pleasant surprise.

                I used to drink my loose leaf tea neat at risk of ruining the flavor. When I hear of adding sugar to tea, I think of the over bearing sweetness that comes from a southern sweet tea. This sugar perfectly sweetens the tea without over powering the original flavor. I recommend this to anyone that is looking for a sweetener.

                  I love this sugar above any other sugar on the market. It melts great, taste is out of this world. I use it with my coffee as well as tea. This would make a great gift item!

                        Regular sugar just doesn't cut it anymore. This rock sugar adds just the right amount of sweetness without adding any other flavor. It highlights the taste of the tea perfectly. While most of the time, I do take my tea neat, when I don't, I reach for a teaspoon or two of this rock sugar.

                        Perfectea German rock sugar is PERFECT! Does not change the flavor of your tea, only enhances and brings out light, teasingly sweet, and absolutely perfect symphonies of flavors in every tea combination I have tried thus far! Regular sugar can over sweeten a tea, or alter its base flavor. The German rock sugar crystals are a smooth, flavorful reminder that flavors can come together and be experienced as only the rock crystals can do!

                          I would not brew my fruit teas without it. Not sure what others do but I myself put it in WITH the loose tea while brewing. It is perfect!!!

                          I am a diabetic and this does not raise my blood sugar though I do use it sparingly.
