I got my order in today and just finished my first cup of rum tea. The aroma of the dry leaves does not exactly smell like rum to me...more along the lines of an alcoholic vanilla drink. I brewed up one cup (1 tsp. tea) with boiling water and let it steep for 5 minutes like Adagio recommends. The taste is definitely "alcoholic" and is very well made. Still, rum (at least the types I used to drink- dark) is not exactly what I think of. I like it quite a bit, but if you are a real rum connoisseur, I think you may be somewhat disappointed in the flavor.
Think along the lines of Captain Morgan rum turned into hot tea.
Hope this helps.
