I love the scent of this tea, both the looseleaf and the liquor. I’ve noticed that after steeping it, the lid to my infuser mug carries a slight scent of bourbon. As far as the drinking experience goes, it delivers exactly the flavor I expect: minty, smooth cacao. It is full bodied while in the mouth, but has a quick, light, minty finish. It makes a great after-dinner tea. I don’t sweeten mine at all, and it still seems dessert-like. I use only 1 teaspoon of tea to 6 ounces of water, and steep for about 1 – 1.5 minutes. It is a pleasant experience, worth trying.
