I love, love this tea! I use it as an after dinner drink. I think it smells heavenly—as does my husband (who doesn’t actually drink it.) I do make it in a 12 oz. cup so perhaps is a bit milder this way—add a dash of stevia to make up for the weaker brew and yum! I especially love the aftertaste; I try to sip it over a long period just to enjoy this aspect.
