I’m not sure when I got this tea, but I found it in my cabinet after doing a recent cleaning.

Here’s what’s in this tea blend: cinnamon, fennel, ginger, rosemary, peppermint, cardamom, carob, damiana leaves, licorice, sage, black pepper, cloves, sarsaparilla roots.

So yeah, there’s a LOT going on.

Taste-wise, it resembles a mix between Samurai Chai Maté from Teavana and Comforting Tea from Aveda. STRONG notes of fennel and sarsaparilla overpower most of the other flavors in this blend, and there’s a slight aftertaste of the black pepper. This would be a great tea to have if you’re congested or feeling a bit under the weather. It could even serve as a good holiday tea.

Overall, it’s good, but not great. If I ran out of Samurai Chai Maté from Teavana, this could be a close replacement until I pick up more.
