I just received my order from ESP Emporium (woo hoo!) and this was the first tea I decided to try.

The description is yummy and the tea looks wonderful. When I opened the package, the aromas of cinnamon and star anise wafted up to my nose. As it steeped those flavors intensified a bit.

When I sipped it (after adding some half & half and a touch of sweetener) the licorice flavor of the star anise seemed to overpower the other flavors. I think I detected a bit of the cinnamon but it was very mild, unlike its tantalizing aroma.

I want to give this another try. It’s not bad at all – the licorice flavor is good, but it’s not what I expected based on the description.
