One for the light tea connoisseurs I feel. As a fan of various Chinese pu’erh teas I tried this on a whim; it does indeed have a very light taste of fennel. Quite a lot more tea than is usual is required to have a noticeable taste on the palate. Unusually for pu’erh tea the flavour doesn’t increase with further flushes but instead dissipates rapidly. If you are a tea explorer this is worth trying but be prepared to have only a few cups of tea per bag.
