I love anise and very often make anise infusion with just anise seed and filtered water. The Rooibos (I can't call it tea) adds an extra layer and depth to the anise that is lovely. I made all 4 cups of the recipe just for myself (the guys won't try anything healthy or "girly", good grief!) and I'll sip it all away with pleasure. Thanks for posting Rita, this is something that I'll use often.
Rita this recipe is outstanding. Anise water is a coman remady for sore or upset tummies, Granny would likely whip a batch up and stand over you untill you drink every drop. Adding the tea makes it taste so much better. I will be making my anise water like this from now on wards and I will be passing the recipe on. Thank you for another gr8 recipe :)
the flavors are well balanced. ths is a very nice, relaxing tea which i will enjoy often. i didn't garnish with walnut, tho. thank you! made for veggie swap 6/11.
The flavours in this tea are very interesting and enjoyable. I used Madagascar Vanilla Red (only rooibos tea I could find). I omitted the walnuts. Thanks for posting. Made for ZWT4
This is a wonderful recipe I enjoy all week at work, thanks Rita.
I was amazed at the difference the addition of the anise made--really brightened and enriched the flavor of the tea. A very simple touch --a very good tea drink. Thanks, Rita!
I used two teabags and three star anises (couldn't use nuts as I'm allergic to them). I was afraid the anise taste might be overpowering, but it's a nice subtile flavour. Good drink!
Lovely layers of flavours. I used a organic chai rooibus tea bags though as that is what I had on hand but I will insha Allah (God willing) make this again with a regular rooibus tea bags. I am quite sure I like it more with the tea incorporated than the traditional way without. I like the walnuts in this. I would like to try this on DD2 for colic insha Allah! I will make this often.
