It’ about time I finished this one up. It’s from ~3 years ago. The flavour has faded slightly, but I still get delicious tannins and anise, which is what I came for.

Backlog:

I had high hopes for this blend – even though it’s a bagged tea. When I see “anise” … my hope level rises because I love anise. The spicy part made me even more excited to try it.

But, it is a disappointment. If you look at the ingredient list, you might think this is chai-ish, but taste wise, it leaves much to be desired of a chai. This is more like a warmly spiced mint tea than a chai. Mint dominates this blend, not the anise.

A disappointment.

OK, I should preface this by saying that I like double-salted black licorice but that’s about it. Normally I’m not a fan of anything even remotely like it.

Buuuttt…I kinda like this. My dad fights me for it whenever I take it out of the cupboard (since there are only 8 bags in the assorted package I bought, I’ll let him have the other 7) since he loves it so much. I’m not a ginger fan but the star anise balanced out the ginger nicely. And, of course, the required mint leaves…yum. I don’t know if I’d buy this again, but I certainly won’t throw it out. Not bad for a bagged tea.
