Pomegranates and lemons have both long held prominent places in legend and lore throughout human history. Both are also at the source of some historical confusion. For example, there are some biblical scholars who believe that the "apple" Adam gave to Eve in the Garden of Eden was actually a pomegranate. As for lemons, there are some historians who will tell you that although the British are sometimes referred to as Limeys, owing to the old practice of eating limes to fend off scurvy; they were in fact eating lemons.

Over the years the two fruits have also been associated with success in its various forms. There is an ancient Hebrew saying that goes, "May it be your design, oh almighty, that our achievements multiply like pomegranate seeds." Then there is the not so ancient American saying that goes, "When life hands you lemons, make lemonade." Either way. Score!

BREWING INSTRUCTIONS FOR HOT TEA: Infuse one slightly heaping teaspoon for each 8 ounce cup with boiling water for 3-7 minutes.

ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Pitcher): (To Make 1 Liter/Quart):
Infuse 6 slightly heaping teaspoons of tea with 1 1/4 cups of boiling water for 5 minutes.  Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water, and add the infused tea, straining the leaves, to the pitcher.  Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Add lemon and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water.

ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Individual Serving):
Infuse 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea with 6 ounces of boiling water for 5 minutes. Add the tea to a 12 ounce glass, filled with ice, straining the leaves.  Add hot tea to a 12oz/375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the tea or removing the bags. Add lemon and sweeten to taste.

NUMBER OF CUPS: 15-20 cups from each 50 grams of tea, with a single use of the leaves.  Loose leaf tea is traditionally infused 3 times, with a different flavor profile following each infusion.  Accordingly, each 50 gram bag can make up to 60 cups of tea.
