Tea #7 from the ’Here’s Hoping’ teabox.
This tea is weird… I think I like it. I don’t taste apple at all, but there is a very sweet note at the beginning of the sip. Not sure if that’s the apple or the anise because there’s no distinct flavor – just sweet. It’s followed by the savory flavor of the fennel and then the heat of the chili bits and ginger. I don’t smell or taste cinnamon or cardamom which is strange since they’re both distinct (and often strong) flavors.
I like the mix of flavors. It’s different and definitely invigorating. Not something I would care to drink every day, but every once in awhile it’s nice to have a weird tea. :)
