This smells strongly enough through the bag I dubbed it ‘peppermint danger,’ but I was hasty in giving it the moniker. Happily, the mint smell did not get stronger and sharper upon hitting the air, which is what my fear stemmed from. It does simply smell like peppermints! And the little candies and chips taste like those soft mints you give horses and/or me and mint white chocolate respectively. On the other hand, adding water genuinely resulted in such a horrible turn of events I was glad to put the lid on the pot. The liquor looks like mulm water. Heavily mulmy water. ‘Gravy’ is the most charitable, appetizing way to describe the color.
As for the taste, it’s unremarkable but nice enough- another buttermint, and not one with striking buttermintisity, although it is creamier, which is a nice touch on the tongue. It is, however, not a nice touch on the teapot. The film it left behind makes it rather not worth it. A very fine strainer might catch some of the sludge and make this worth a go.
