Tea #7 from the ’Here’s Hoping’ teabox.

This tea is weird… I think I like it. I don’t taste apple at all, but there is a very sweet note at the beginning of the sip. Not sure if that’s the apple or the anise because there’s no distinct flavor – just sweet. It’s followed by the savory flavor of the fennel and then the heat of the chili bits and ginger. I don’t smell or taste cinnamon or cardamom which is strange since they’re both distinct (and often strong) flavors.

I like the mix of flavors. It’s different and definitely invigorating. Not something I would care to drink every day, but every once in awhile it’s nice to have a weird tea. :)

Tea obsessed since 2010.

My Rating System:

100-95 = Teas I actively seek out and keep in my pantry. If you are a guest in my home chances are I will offer you one or all of these teas. Also, if/when these teas are discontinued I openly mourn their loss.

94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.

54-45 = I will if I have no other option.

44 and below = Coffee, please.
