A sample from KittyLovesTea! I tried this one last night also. I don’t usually drink a lot of bagged tea at home, but I was tired and it’s so convenient. I was also thinking I’d take them to work to finish off, as I appreciate speed more there than I do when I’m relaxing.
So, this one tastes pretty much like fennel. No surprise, as there are whole fennel seed in the bag, and it’s the primary component here. I’m tempted to say there’s something else kicking around…maybe lemongrass? It’s a little like the H&H Apple and Cinnamon I tried alongside, in that there’s a niggling flavour I just can’t quite identify. Anyway, the fennel flavour is clear but not too strong, gently aniseed-like, with a herbal undertone. Successive cups might help me out here, so my rating for this one is also provisional. I like it, though. I just wish I knew what I could taste other than fennel!
