I’ve had this poor tea for several years and never made a tasting note! :( I must have tried it when I first bought it, lured by the promise of anise and fruit. Now that it is undoubtedly past it’s prime, I’m digging it out of my cupboard and revisiting it. Once steeped it smells a little like NY Breakfast, one of my three favorite TWG teas. The malty scent with the promise of something richer. The sip falls a bit flat with a little malt flavor on the back. I could taste fruit on my first few sips, but I’ve lost that now. I think I can imagine a little anise? I added a bit of cream mid cup and that seems to have destroyed all the nuances that were left in this ancient tea. The Weekend In _____ teas seemed so intriguing that I ordered several, but I don’t recall any of them standing out as a really enjoyable amazing cup. I still have a bit of this left in the bag, so maybe a cold steep would do it some good.
