Ginger and anise are two flavors that are forever linked to beautiful memories in my life. My grandmother loved anise; she always had these little hard candies in her kitchen that she gave me when I went to visit her. Her anise gelatins were known throughout the city and of course I was always first in line to eat one… or two! I began using ginger about 13 years ago. My husband loves its smell and taste; I know he'll happily eat any dish made with this aromatic root. And my kids can't stop eating gingerbread cookies when we have them in the house. These two flavors are a little strong, but I think they compliment each other very well. The idea of a hot tea was appetizing to me because of the cold winter days that many of us are still experiencing. Its taste is strong and a little spicy but it goes well with a bit of lemon and honey. Enjoy! MORE + LESS -
