This T Kettle blend makes me scratch my head a little bit because it really seems like it’s supposed to be T Kettle’s attempt at recreating Bravissimo – which is an old DT classic that recently made a reappearance as a limited edition tea…

It’s not the concept of them trying to dupe the blend in general which confuses me – that’s clearly been a pattern with many DT blends and a very obvious amount of effort seems to have gone into finding a name in the same style as “Bravissimo” without actually using Bravissimo. That’s more the part that stumps me – because presumably a lot of thought was put into the name/recreation, and yet there were sprinkles added to the tea which seems like a pretty fundamental misunderstanding of the kind of customer that was often buying Bravissimo – a blend intended to be soothing on a sore throat!? I’m sorry but, at least in my mind, Sprinkles does not a Wellness blend make.

With that said, it tastes fine – very licorice forward, but I appreciate that it’s “anise” licorice and not the unpleasant cloying sweetness of licorice root. Man, I just can’t stand licorice root. I think I actually prefer T Kettle’s “Throat Rescue” recreation though, which has a very similar anise like flavour profile – I’m blanking on what they named theirs, though…
