Snap & Iced Tea Cocktail

For Christmas, SP bought me a bottle of Snap. It's a lebkuchen flavored spirit . It's got a a strong blackstrap molasses flavor but also flavors of ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, brown sugar, vanilla, and rooibos tea.

We've been playing with it a bit, mostly trying to recreate a Snap cocktail I had at Nine on Nine a couple of years ago. That drink was so good. We have yet to achieve such a delicious result at home. I've given up on bourbon and Snap for a while, but SP decided to try some Snap mixed with iced tea.
Here's how he made it:
Use a highball or collins glass
Add a few dashes of bitters
Pour in 2~2.5 ounces of Snap
Fill the glass with iced tea (as much/little as you like)
Add a twist of orange peel 
We both really liked it. A boozy, milk free, iced chai tea.
