Tea Review – Galil – Anise Tea

Company Name: GALIL





Interesting Highlights:

I’d been looking to add an Israeli tea to my reviews and was excited while visiting New Jersey I found this Anise Tea by Galil, I love anise, I used to often have a few anise hard candies in my purse just to enjoy during the day.





The Scent or Aroma:

As soon as you open the box that anise smell will be present.



I love the smell of anise (or licorice) and this tea allows you to enjoy that scent from open to brew, However that is where it ends. I was disappointed that this tea is very bland and I used two tea bags. It’s also more of a dust then a substantial piece of anise. I was disappointed and if I get a chance to get more Galil tea I’ll try another one to hopefully bring people another amazing tea product.  Even with two tea bags this tea left me flat with a nice fragrance but very little flavor, a very bland tea.




Cost: $17.56/ 6 boxes of 20 tea bags each

Price may vary according to the amount purchased.
