I wasn’t expecting to like this tea too much; the loose leaf blend smelled spicy in a way that made me cautious – it smelled almost sharp. However, the anise comes out well once brewed, and there is little initial sharpness, just a pleasant, smooth licorice flavor (and a slight anise aroma as well).

The more I drank the more I could ascertain the pepper, which was subtle and a nice contrast. Not my favorite tea, and I’m not sure I’d order it again (not a big fan of spicy tea), but a pleasant surprise.
