Mild, woody aroma, with a hint of wintergreen. The smell reminds me of the inside of some people's homes...it's a homey, comfortable, familiar sort of smell, but slightly medicinal. This tea is slightly sweet, and very mellow.

After drinking two cups (the sample only really makes three) I'm still not sure how I feel about this stuff. I'd recommend trying it though...it's not like any other herbal tea I've tried, even though the aroma is oddly familiar.

It's a little pricey because you need to use a good amount of the bark to get a flavorful cup. It's silly they say "bold leaf" -- there's nothing remotely resembling leaf in this herbal tea. Watch out handling it; you can get a splinter out of this stuff; it's sharp, so I recommend using a very fine tea strainer, using it very carefully, and making sure you keep it out of the brewed tea and avoid touching it with your hands.
