I think I got this tea originally as a free pouch that came with a promotion Frank was doing. I’m not sure I would have chosen it on its own as I’m pretty ambivalent towards brandy and brandy-flavoured things generally.
The scent of the tea is like a spicy orange with a distinct licorice note from the anise. The flavour is almost chai-like with the brandy as sort of an aftertaste. The anise thankfully isn’t as strong as the scent would suggest though I can still pick it out. There’s also a faint bitterness that I’m not sure I care for – I think this tea would benefit from some sweeter flavours. It’s not a bad tea but not my thing, I think.
