I was afraid to open this and smell it because I thought it might be weird. Brandy spice tea? Am I ever glad I opened it! To me, it smells like eggnog. I love eggnog. When I prepared and drank it, I thought that it was a nice, smooth, spicy tea, but I didn’t taste any brandy. I loved it, though. I wanted another cup right away, which is unusual for me—I usually like to mix it up. Warning, if you have an aversion to licorice/anise, you will likely not enjoy this one.

I’m sad to hear the anise is so strong. Now I’m afraid to open & try mine…

I am so excited to hear that the anise is strong! (Sorry Janefan!) I love licorice and anise, and I sometimes get frustrated with teas that go wimpy with it, glad to hear that this one has some licorice-y taste.

Bio

44-year-old empty nester, mother of one 21-year-old young man who is a senior at UW-Madison. I live in Two Rivers, Wisconsin, near Lake Michigan. I love to read, embroider, play my ukulele, and drink tea, of course!

I have written 100 reviews over the years. One thing that’s changed is that I used to put two packages of Splenda in an 8-oz. cup of tea. Now I wonder how I even tasted the tea. I’m down to about 1/2 to 1 packet of Stevia per full mug.

About my cupboard—I have listed every tea that I have 1 oz. or more. Most teas I have about 3-4 oz. Feel free to ask for a trade. I love to trade! I will warn you now that sometimes I’m a slow mailer so you shouldn’t send me your part of the trade until you’ve gotten your package from me. I won’t be offended!

TEA LIKES: Blacks, Greens, Whites, and these flavors: Berry, nut, coconut, spice, sweet, crème, pineapple, citrus, cranberry, mint, marshmallow, vanilla…

TEA DISLIKES: Strong bergamot, sour, tangy, tart, earthy, pu erh, strong oolongs (they smell like manure to me), Jasmine, floral, smoky, hibiscus, rooibos…
