The first time I had it, I might not have followed the directions because I didn’t care for it so much. But my mom kept on asking me to prepare some, saying that it tasted good and so I made an effort to follow the directions this time.
The liquor is dark like a black tea’s.
The flavor is pleasant enough that my dad did not object to it. He is very particular to flavors.
The extra motivation for wanting this prepared: my mom’s friend has a friend who has cancer and I gave her a 2oz pouch of this. Later on we heard that her friend was wanting to get some more of it because it helped her to feel stronger. True story :)
