I’m going to need to try this again before i land on how i feel about it. I was expecting more from this one when i brewed it up, based on the smell. It’s a lovely aroma – orangey, sweet smelling….however first sip of this after letting it cool a bit is more like slightly flavoured water. There’s almost a hint of orange here…but not really. the tea base is a little weak, which is odd since i’m fairly certain anne’s used this as a base for other teas that i’ve loved. I’m tasting the star anise for sure, but the other spices seem to be hiding. Not a bad cup, but not what i was expecting. Reserving judgement for now since it’s a recent blend and might just need a little more time and b) now there’s a little more room in the package to really shake things around.
All that being said, thanks so much for your continued involvement in the community Anne :)
