Made for a Christmas party and it was well received. Used loose leaf black tea(assam) instead of inferior bags. Keep steep time closer to 5 minutes than 10. Oversteeping tea just makes it bitter, not stronger. A bit too much honey for my taste, so feel free to gradually work your way up to the desired sweetness. Was good and i will make it again.  item not reviewed by moderator and published
