This one is strange for me. I love the tea, once its steeped and I am drinking it, but the scent of the dry leaf is off-putting. I find the dry leaf smells like a package of honey lemon fisherman’s friends cough drops which made me think it would be a little mentholish like a cough drop. To my suprise it wasn’t. It tastes just like honey to me, without that sickly sweet thickness. It gives me a nice pick me up in the afternoon, and its nice and light as opposed to some of the other mate’s I have tried (chocolate rocket-to be exact.. that tea drinks like a meal!). I purchased some Jack Daniel’s Tenesse honey whiskey and used iced honeybee as a mix, and it was fabulous!
