Very strong citrus smell with a hint of something sweeter
Liquor is a dark chestnut brown in the cup
The sweet smell is stronger when steeped.
Still has a citrus flavor, with a hint of something floral. Also has a a slight astringency that makes the aftertaste seem a bit dry. Adding a touch of milk smooths that out to make a soothing cup

Here’s a fun social experiment: the next time someone is rude to you for no reason that you can see, be nice to them.
It sounds hard—which it is—but trust me, it’s worth it.
Smile at the person. If they’re a customer of yours, take an extra second and do a little more for them, or strike up a conversation. If it’s just someone you encounter when you’re at the grocery store, just tell them you hope they have a wonderful day or something to that effect.
Why be nice to someone who is rude?
Because they won’t know how to respond.
From a purely observational standpoint, watching a person who is rude and expects rudeness try to figure out how to respond to you when you don’t give their rude right back to them is quite possibly one of the most entertaining things I’ll see all day.
But there’s another reason, one that’s a little more nice
You don’t know why they’re like that.
Yes, they could just be a rude rude person. But they could also be having a horrible day or got the worst news of their life. It doesn’t take away from you to smile at someone, and that small act of kindness could be just the thing to turn their day (or life, even) around.
Try it once, see how you feel
