As promised, we tried it iced today, and sweetened. Youngest really thought it was the worst hot, and said it was okay cold. Just okay. Hubby tried it and said, “It isn’t terrible. It’s pretty good.”
I thought it tasted okay, not the worst by a long shot but if you don’t like anise, this isn’t a good tea for you. Once it is cold and sweetened it reminds me of those blends that have licorice root in them for sweetness. I like those, so this is okay to me, and certainly not “The Worst.” I will definitely drink it all cold this summer.
