The fragrance of this tea is unbelievable. It smells of sweetness, honey, and a tantalizing hint of spice.
Unfortunately, I found when we brewed it, that it tasted much like generic black tea. There was a hint of honey flavor, but none of the super fragrance of the tea came through in the liquor. Even the fragrance of the tea only smelled slightly sweet.
We tried it plain and with sugar, and thought it made little difference.
