Yerba Mate, peppermint, fennel seed, ginger, clove, peppercorn.

I am unsure if this blend still exists – a friend brought it back from the U.S for me as a gift.

It is well balanced. While not comprised of my favourite ingredients (being polite) I did appreciate the craft that went into getting a great balance of flavours. None seem to outshine the others. The peppercorn adds the TASTE of pepper without overdoing the heat. I loved the restraint in not doubling aniseed flavours with liquorice root as well as fennel seed. The seed is enough to give that lovely aromatic sweetness without being sickly. Clean and lingering. The mouthfeel builds and enchants as you sip. This guy is invigorating. I did wonder a little, though, where is the mate???

Not my highest scoring by all means, but this is not due to unmasterful blending, just my personal tastes and leanings.
