This tea has a strong, pungent aroma and flavor. On my first three or four tastings I only drank it because I didn’t want the money I spent on it to go to waste. With ingredients like anise, licorice, spearmint and rosemary you’ve got to prepare yourself for a complex and savory tea experience. The addition of honey or sugar and milk helps make the tea more palatable for first tastings. Now it is one of my favorites and I am toying around with the idea of using a strong brew of the tea as a marinade for chicken.
