This is a nice little blend, sweet but tart. It might not be a traditional approach to Christmas, but the combination of spices nonetheless provides a nice warmth in the cold of winter. Weirdly, even though there’s nothing resembling caramel in here, that’s one thing it makes me think of — I wish I had some caramel tea so I could try out the combo!

Unfortunately, there’s also a weird, bitter undertone, kind of like licorice jelly beans that REALLY kills the taste for me unless I try very hard to ignore it. I suspect it’s the star anise, so I’m going to see if taking that out will improve the flavor. If not, I guess this isn’t right for me — but I’m sure there are others to whom that would appeal, and to them I recommend this tisane wholeheartedly.
