This is a great question. I'm sorry I wasn't able to answering it sooner, but now that's I've made tea using just Damiana I am more confident with what it's has contributed with the gruit.

It's not fruity at all. It's kind of a grassy root with white pepper notes. It's more peppery than anything else, but not like a strong black pepper corn pepper, more subtle hints of pepper.

I'm guess the notes about Damiana as an aphrodisiac contributed more to it's addition than actual taste, but maybe I am wrong. :-)

Although only in the secondary, I'll probably do a tasting of my Gruit this weeks HBW video.

Peppery? Interesting. I think I'll stick close to he original and pass on the Damiana.

Besides, I don't know if I'd want to share it with any male friends if it acts as an aphrodisiac. Although I do have a couple female friends that.... hmmmmm.
