Maté, known for its invigorating and energetic effects, serves as the foundation of this combination. It's the backbone of the tea, delivering a rich flavour that pairs well with the fragrant spices. Including cinnamon pieces enhances the dish's sweetness and coziness, recalling the enticing tastes of a cosy spice. The spirit of relaxation and luxury is in every sip.
Cardamom gives the tea a unique and alluring warmth, improving the flavour and adding dimension to the blend. The ginger chunks offer a refreshing zing and a pleasant spicy note that works well with the other flavours. The tea is taken to a new level of aromatic and exotic appeal thanks to the addition of anise star.
