I first purchased Teavana's Rock Sugar online when my good friend ordered me a teapot set from Teavana. She knew what she was doing. I love my tea and Teavana's site is fun to browse. Now Amazon gives you the convenience of ordering through them. How nice is that?
The product is delivered in sealed packages that are easily transported into the glass jar. My jar has a glass top with a rubber stopper effect that makes for easy access. I buy pound refills about every three months.
The beauty of this product is the fact that very little is needed to achieve the desired sweetness. After brewing my tea, I take a small quantity of the rock sugar--less than a teaspoon--the pellets are irregular so you may just need four or five-- and place them in the bottom of a 12 ounce mug. The bulky consistency of the sugar is almost like a time-release. For the most part, by the time I finish my mugga, the rock sugar will not have even melted fully. I don't dawdle, I will get a mouth of sugar in that last mouthful if I don't drink the tea fast enough! If it gets to that, I just don't drink the dregs or I refill with more brew. Brilliant!
Bottom line? I like this product. Teavana's Rock Sugar does not melt fast and makes for a nice subtle sweetener for my tea. Recommended as a repeat buy. Diana Faillace Von Behren "reneofc"

Attractive & functional. Glass jar includes three pounds of our German Rock Cane Sugar. These pure, unprocessed sugar crystals are the best way to enhance the natural sweetness of your tea without changing the flavor. Add to tea leaves while steeping.
