The mint aroma from these large cut leaves is very strong, and this carries through to the tea in both aroma and flavor, without being overpowering. The color is a lovely pale amber. Quite pleasant without any sweetener. Adding a touch transformed it into a taste of after dinner peppermint – which was perfect for my rampant sweet tooth but might be too much for some palates.
