This is a very strong tea with complex flavors, which I suppose is appropriate considering the character. This was the first time I’d used aniseed and I’m happy with the results because it enhances the taste of the gunpowder green. The orange peels and rose hips bring out the zest of the earl grey and the chai brings the spice. Definitely not what I would deem a hero’s tea, but who needs heroes when you have Uncle Sassy Wolf?
