*The lemon flavor in sumac is stronger when the clusters are broken off from the stems. Keep them intact if you prefer a more mild flavor or steep longer for a stronger flavor. Adjust the sweetness by adding more (or less) honey.
**Staghorn sumac is safe but other species of Sumac are not. Staghorn can be easily identified by its' bright red clusters but do your research and consume at YOUR OWN risk.
