With the triple whammy of licorice root/anise/and fennel I was expecting this tea to be more strongly licorice-flavoured than it was. Instead, however, the citrusy bergamot is still the most prominent flavour in this tea and the licorice is a more a slightly spicy afterthought, making this blend more interesting than your typical earl grey. I’m glad that they didn’t overdo it with the licorice root as its sweetness can completely take over a tea. Instead the licorice flavour is more spicy than sweet, characteristic of fennel seeds.
An interesting take on a classic tea.
