  4. Why do you simmer for 30 minutes? And not for like 5-10? Does the flavour really change? o.o
    I tried the recipe twice today but wasn't patient enough to wait 30 minutes (I did 10 tops). It's delicious though, I especially love the iced tea version you suggested! ^^ Thank you for sharing! (I would've never thought of it!)
