Fresh, minty, great for blending.

Scalds very easily – ruined my first cup by scalding the leaves and it was horribly bitter and astringent.

At a lower temperature, the tea is still bitter, which I’m not a big fan of. If you like a stronger, more bitter tea, I can see how it could be very appealing.

The tea stood up to a second infusion, but I didn’t try past that.

The dry leaves smell incredible – strong cloves and citrus, very festive.

As for the liquor itself – The cloves and citrus are mild don’t overpower the taste of the tea. Overall, really enjoyed this, especially with the cold rainy weather today.
