Review: Teavana's German Rock Sugar
After discovering the store Teavana about a year ago, I've been really into drinking loose leaf tea. During my last (and final) visit to Teavana, I inquired about the sweeteners they use in the sample teas that are set up around the store. I was then introduced to their German Rock Sugar.
I was excited to try it out, but upon doing so I was quite disappointed. I needed to put 2 heaping tablespoons of the sugar for every cup of tea just for it to be sweet enough to drink. I actually did gnaw on it like it was rock candy...it was more useful as candy than as a sweetener for my tea. If it was inexpensive, I suppose this wouldn't be a problem. However, I bought a huge tin that wasn't cheap and I went through the whole container in about 2 weeks. the rock sugar just isn't "strong" enough for me. :(
So, I can't say that I would recommend this sugar if you like adding a decent amount of sweeteners to your tea. If you are fine with just a hint of sugar taste, then this product would probably suit your needs. For now, I stick to the sugar packets I get from the grocery store...
