And yes all the winter flavors mix in this hot drink to transport you into the Christmas mood. If Christmas had to have a flavor, it would most certainly be a hot Tea flavored with spices.
To savor your Tea and taste the best plants, do not hesitate to garnish your hot drink with tasty spices to extend the Christmas spirit into your cup. At Pagès, our favorite spices are undoubtedly Badian and Cinnamon.
And yes, Badian, also called “star anise” is traditionally used in the making of cakes. It is also found in many mulled wine recipes. And of course, Star anise is a spice that is used to enhance tea. It releases powerful aromas when immersed in hot water, which gives hot drinks sparkling and original notes with sweet Christmas flavors.
Cinnamon has been a popular spice since ancient times for its fragrant flavor. Originally from Sri Lanka, in France it is in Alsace that this spice is used the most to make Zemetkuche which is a brioche cake. Cinnamon is also a natural flavor enhancer allowing to flavor drinks such as mulled wine, hot chocolate, coffee, but also herbal teas. Besides having a pleasant taste, this plant is beneficial for the health. Indeed, it is rich in antioxidants, a source of fiber and promotes digestive well-being.
