So, I've been making this tea in the microwave by nuking it for two minutes on high and letting it steep for about three minutes. It's a rough estimate, and sometimes I play fast and loose because I'm impatient and want a hot drink *right now*. It's definitely delicious! I haven't yet tried it with the new inclusions -- I am still going through a bag of the old batch -- but it does seem to help my cramps.

My mom ordered this tea and she says it tastes like boiled grass. We won't order it again.

Although it was a good tea, it didn't have much in the way of cranberry taste. I would not order this tea again.

The replacement infuser for the ingenuiTEA solved all my previous issues. It's a *very* tight seal and doesn't pop out. I actually haven't removed it since I inserted it to make sure it stays snug for a good long time.

Yes, I'm reviewing my own tea. This covers the first version, which has, for now, not been modified. I'm enjoying the current balance of flavors, which has a nice gingery kick without being too strong and a nice touch of fruity sweetness. I also would like to report that I believe the tea has done its job. For about three days, I drank two cups of this tea (heated for two minutes in my microwave on high and steeped for five). I am no longer late. I know some readers may disbelieve the efficacy of the tea, but let me say that in the past, I have easily been 45 to 90 days late if I have not chosen an herbal intervention, and what a yummy intervention this is!

Carol made this tea just for me! She warned me that she wasn't sure how it would come out, and to let her know if it didn't taste right so she could tweak the next batch. I love it! No lie, I drank five cups in a row the first day. Usually I struggle to finish even one large mug of tea; despite the fact that I love tea, especially greens blended with tisanes, I don't generally drink that much in the way of warm fluids throughout the day. This tea may be the primary reason for keeping me hydrated for the next couple of months!

As a note to the tea purists who may be wondering how high I heat my tea, I confess to you that I am a sinner. I do not heat my water to a specific temperature; rather I heat the tea in my microwave on high for two minutes and then let it steep for three. I humbly hope this does not diminish your estimation of my review.
