This sugar is perfect. It melts nicely in the pot, and it is easy to use. It is expensive, but other sugars just don't compare.

If you are thinking you can just save money and use regular sugar, you are very wrong. If you ever do a taste test between tea sweetened with rock sugar and tea sweetened with regular sugar, the difference is astounding. Goes best with any black teas. I ordered with this black tea sampler, it was amazing; Organic Black Teas Loose Tea Trio Sampler - Earl Grey Crème, Sweet Almond Wild Berry, Pumpkin Spice Chai. A nice flavor that sweetens your tea without overpowering it. It is definitely a must have. You won't regret it.

German Rock Cane sugar is a natural unrefined sugar that is made from beets, not from sugar cane. It retains the brown hue because that is essentially the ingredient that is refined out to make molasses. The sugar does provide a pleasant sweetness to your tea however it should be noted that it does come at an additional caloric cost. One teaspoon of German rock cane sugar contains 25 calories, whereas one teaspoon of white granulated sugar only contains 16 calories. Whether you prefer refined or unrefined sugars is left up to your personal taste but I thought it was something worth noting in addition to the other reviews.

I was given some of the German Rock Sugar by a friend for my birthday, and I really like it. I usually use Sugar in The Raw, but had wanted to try the rock sugar. So, when I was given this, I tried it out.

I do enjoy it, the crystals are pretty in my tea maker or cup, and I love to watch them dissolve. They sweeten without actually adding a flavor to the tea, so I'm not left tasting tea and sweetener, like I do with honey.

One drawback I do find with the rock sugar is how Teavana suggests you use it: they suggest you add it to your tea while it's brewing. This is fine and dandy if your tea brews for a while, but if you're brewing for 2-3 minutes for some teas (like they suggest), you'll find the tea is done before the sugar dissolves. And since I use the Perfect Tea Maker, I don't stir the leaves (as suggested). So I've found it works best added to the bottom of a cup and then let the tea maker pour into the cup, agitating the sugar and helping it dissolve before I use mt spoon.

I only see a single 3 star review for this product currently, and that simply doesn't do it justice. It exists as a way to sweeten Teas (and other beverages) without having a strong effect on the flavor itself. I am primarily a Fruit-based Tea Drinker, and its fantastic for sweetening a batch of Tea, Iced or hot, and has no trouble being turned into a simple syrup for later application. It is indeed on the pricey side, but its well worth it for what it brings to the drink. A fine product, through and through.

I cannot deny that this is great sugar. It's very interesting to steep, add to your cup or however you use it... BUT, I believe I found a lbs. for lbs. cheaper version of the same thing here... D And P Old fashioned Rock Candy Amber Sugar Crystals, 5lbs Box. Read some of the reviews on it and decide for yourself... One 5 star reviewer even mentioned it was the same rock sugar used by Teavana... Hmmm?

I first had rock sugar at an upscale spa as I waited for my massouse and fell in love with it after one cup. This definitely does the trick for tea. Unlike granualated sugars that sink, accumulate at the bottom and demand that you stir periodically just to keep the tea & it's contents homogenized, this rock sugar distributes an evenly sweet taste throughout the whole cup. No stirring needed! Rocks dissolve gradually from the temperature of the tea water. And like a previous user said, it does a great job sweetening without changing the tea's designated flavor, but rather enhances it. I'm hooked on thsi product from Teavana.

Good Lord! This is over twice the price than if you buy it from Teavana!

I agree that this is an awesome sugar - wonderful with teas. Dissolves quickly, doesn't clump. You definitely want this, just not at this price.

Also interested that the package is supposedly for 1 pound (16 ounces), but the shipping weight is LESS than a pound (15.2 oz)

I love this product but I go through it fast so it is too expensive for daily use. Spending more on my sugar than for some of my tea is scary, but rock sugar takes tea drinking to a whole new level, and when I spend the money I do on expensive imported Milk Oolong for its multiply brewings (all day affair, perfect when I need to write, usually on a weekend, and the bits of undissolved crystals really lend itself well to this experience, but I digress), I use nothing but the best, Rock Sugar from Tevana. NOTHING tastes like it. Not the Amber rock candy sold else where. Teavana's Rock Sugar is really unique.

However, once your palate is adapted to this favor it is really hard to use ANYTHING else. So when I make cheaper cups of tea like my daily brew before work, (Jasmine Perl, Golden Yunnan, or just about any strong black tea or cheaper end oolong) I have learned how to make my rock sugar last longer. It is going to sound sacrilegious, but I mix equal amounts rock sugar with raw sugar. I know it is probably not perfectly half in half, but I can barely tell the difference between the two, especially when I am sipping my tea in the car in a hurry to get some where and I just need my morning fortification.

A trick for dissolving rock sugar is to add it to the cup when you infuse and put a lid on the tea cup during brewing to keep the heat in the cup. Another tip is to first mix the boiling water with the sugar, stir a bit then put your infuser in the cup (perfect temp for oolong and greens since you should NEVER pour boiling water directly over any high quality tea, you will burn your tea). If you need to heat the water hotter for black tea, just nuke the sugar water a few seconds to bring it back to 200 degrees before putting the infuser in the cup.
