Great flavour

I was initially very worried when I opened this tea, as it smelled overwhelmingly of anise, which is a flavour I do not like at all. But when brewed, the anise blends completely and I don't notice it. The flavor overall is warm and mildly spicy and the base tea is very fresh-tasting.
