Made this one up as a latte this morning. I used three bags in 250ml boiling water, for around 8 minutes, then I added 150ml of hot milk. It’s not quite as flavourful as I expected it to be, if I’m honest. There’s quite a lot of cardamom, because it’s having that tongue numbing effect, but otherwise I can mostly taste vanilla. It’s pretty sweet, with both liquorice root and vanilla, and then the milk, but I don’t mind that too much. I just wish I’d been able to taste more of the fennel and pepper, which would have balanced things out a little better.
I’ll try this one brewed straight next, I think, and that should give me a better idea of what it’s like. Maybe a latte just isn’t the thing for this one (although it’s warming and comforting, and that’s really all I wanted this morning…)
