Not my cup of tea. Not sure what it is…maybe the licorice root or the star anise? Normally I LOVE herbal teas and I love teas with cinnamon, but this tea isn’t doing it for me. I’ve tried it hot, I’ve had it iced, I’ve added sugar, I’ve tried it with various flavors of honey; still this tea does not live up to my expectations. Will not be buying this tea again.
