Oh. Oh god. No. I tried. I steeped it the normal time of my blacks. It smelled like licorice and then it tasted so abrasive I gave up after my first taste. Then leaving it by me, kept forgetting to toss out and wash the cup since I was at work, I tried two or four small sips across the next few hours (because I have a container that keeps it hot for around four-five hours) but it was just as terrible each time.
