I loved the smell of this tea, the fennel is very strong in the scent, I couldnt smell the spice at all. Once brewed this tea still smelled delicious, with a slight spicy smell. One I tasted it I could barely stand to have any, definitely couldn’t finish the cup. The fennel taste was strong and tasty but the chili kick was unbareable. I don’t usually mind spice but this was a bad spice kick. I even had my fiance try it and he loves spicy things and even he thought the spice was far too much. I am going to try this tea again without any chilis in it to see how it tastes without the chilis. I definitely wont be buying this tea again.

I agree with the chili overkill in certain cups! But I’ve learned to regulate the heat by choosing how many peppers I steep. Fewer peppers = gentler heat, I promise.

Bio

I have always enjoyed tea. One day during the Olympics in Vancouver on a cold rainy day I came across this tea store, I went in and I was amazed by the number of teas. I was probably there for over an hour smelling every tea they had in store. The store I stumbled upon was DAVIDsTEA. That day I bought about 5 tea`s with high caffeine content so I could stay awake for my night shifts. Later that year during the summer I returned with my boyfriend and I left with 10 tins of 100g each of tea. Since that day I have not bought tea from anywhere else. I have become a tea fanatic since that one cold winter day in Vancouver.
