I was afraid when I saw just how much fennel was in this dry blend mix! I must say I have had some less than pleasant experiences with fennel in tea. BUT…
This is wonderful! It leads me to believe that much of the fennel that I have had in teas has been either artificial or enhanced in some way with additional flavoring and/or the blends I have had have been too over the top with the other ingredients that either don’t mesh well with the other spices or interrupt the natural fennel taste!
This is what fennel SHOULD be all about! This has a great deal of Fennel IN the mix but it tastes very good and more natural tasting than others I have tried prior to this little gem from Yogic Chai!
The other ingredients are gentle and in the background. They only assist and do the fennel justice in this specific case! I’m very impressed with Fennel Masala Chai fro m Yogic Chai!
This if my favorite Fennel Related Tea to date!
