Very nice. The spices are strong but not really spicy. Just very warm and cozy. The Yerba Maté is balanced well with the spices, and I can taste the earthy, vegetative quality of the Maté. I’m not always a big fan of that earthy quality, but, with the earthiness of the spices, the two seem to work together very well. I like the strength of the anise here, it gives a really nice licorice-y taste that lingers in the aftertaste. I do love licorice!
