I love the aroma of this tisane. It smells so deliciously spicy … not in a hot-spicy kind of way but in an exotic spiced kind of way. I can smell the caradamom, cloves, cinnamon…. the ginger is not an overpowering scent here, and what I love most is the addition of fennel and anise. It isn’t as present in the flavor as it is in the scent, though. Yes, I taste licorice-y hints of flavor, but, nothing too strong. It’s nicely balanced, with the cardamom and cloves coming through just as strongly (maybe even stronger) than the cinnamon.
A nice, warming cup.
