        This is the best sweetener I've ever had and I've had my fair share. This sweaters the tea without taking away from the full flavor. I bought the glass jar full of rock sugar and I'm so glad I did. When I brew my 16oz cup of tea I usually put around 1-2 tsp (teavana tsp) of rock sugar in depending on the type of tea I'm drinking.

          I put this in every tea I drink. For iced teas, I would dissolve the sugar first in hot water--thanks Naoko!

            Good sugar

                  Since this is Belgian "candi sugar" which is primarily used for brewing beer, I was quite skeptical about using it as a sweetener for tea, but I am sold on it now. I made two cups side by side, one with rock sugar and one with white refined. The rock sugar clearly made a better tasting cup. It is fantastic in any tea, but really shines with types that need a bit of sweetener to bring out the range of flavors such as minty teas or other flavored kinds.

                  There are no real cons to it other than it being addictive, I have a bad habit of snacking on it like rock candy. The price is a bit higher than average for this type of sugar, but not unreasonably so.

                      I use a teaspoon of rock sugar in almost every cup of tea I drink. Dispite my sweet tooth, I don't like things too sweet. This sugar brightens tea flavor without overpowering the lighter teas and it softens the fuller-bodied ones. Very nice!

                          • 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

                                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!
