As this is just at it’s end of infusion…the scent reminds me of a walk thru a lumber store…very fresh woodsy smelling. The color is a reddish orange. It tastes like it smells with a little sweetness added in. You really can’t smell the spearmint or even taste it during the sip. It’s more of an afterthought-aftertaste effort. It’s ok actually. Not the best but certainly drinkable.
