I purchased this tea for my husband since he likes fennel. I didn’t pay much attention to what other ingredients were in it, but wow, that pepper is something else. My husband likes it ok and says that, for him, the fennel comes through stronger than the pepper.

I didn’t pick up on the apple, but it may have been there. I was too focused on the pepper. I kept saying “this is a really weird tea” and my husband asked if that was how I was going to log it. Well, yeah, basically. Pepper in tea is weird for me. It’s tolerable, but it doesn’t feel like I’m drinking tea. I didn’t hate it, but I don’t know if I’ll ever go out of my way for another cup because when I want tea, I want tea.

Anyone know what are the health benefits of the peppercorns?

Used in Indian medicine for ions and used for everything from toothache to digestive issues. Antioxidant properties. This is a drupe like walnuts and almonds. Pink peppercorns are a fruit and not a true pepper. The Romans valued pepper like gold.

Oh, thanks Bonnie! When you say that pink peppercorns are not true pepper, does that mean the other info you gave relevant to the pink peppercorns specifically or to other pepper?

I was commenting on real black pepper (green and white too…the same pepper just dried differently), not pink berries which are called pepper but are not.

My Rating System

100 My happiness absolutely depends on it

95 Will definitely repurchase

85: Might repurchase (teas that depend on my mood)

75 Won’t repurchase (but I would drink it again if offered).

65: meh

45: I reluctantly finished a cup.

15: Couldn’t finish a cup.

I simplified my ratings to single numbers rather than ranges because I can’t precisely compare so many teas with a system more detailed than this.

An unrated tea is most often one that I recognize as having significant notable quality, but that does not suit me personally. Sometimes, I leave teas unrated for other reasons, such as I am undecided or I brewed it wrong, etc.

Note: Boiling temp. barely reaches 200 where I am (and a few times it sticks at 195, I assume due to unexplainable shifts in altitude or the position of the moon. . .aliens?. . .).
