The short version: best root beer tea ever.
The longer version: The dry leaf is generously speckled with spices and smells strongly of root beer. It doesn’t smell like your typical mass produced root beer either (Mug, Barq’s, etc) but rather like root beer from a microbrewery à la Phillips.
It’s simply fantastic both hot and cold brewed. The base doesn’t get in the way at all. It’s smooth. The cinnamon comes out a little more hot. It reminds you how complex and interesting the flavour profile of root beer is. It’s not only sarsaparilla, but creamy vanilla and spices, too.
It goes without saying that I will be upgrading from a sample to 50g, maybe even 100g next time I order.
