    This was so different from anything I ususally make but it was good. The anise is interesting with the cherry (I subbed reg anise seed and a pinch of all spice), but not entirely to my taste, I think I'd prefer to leave it out. Made for the Comfort Cafe July 09

    Great cherry flavor in an ice tea. I am not an ice tea lover and I really like this a lot. I could drink this every day. Left out the anise by personal choice. Made for Summer Comfort Cafe.
