Rooibos Old Fashioned Cocktail

My spouse has been making excellent cocktails for quite some time, but we bought the cookbook Nopi after having excellent cocktails at the restaurant.  This one is quite complex in flavor, and the Rooibos syrup will leave you with plenty for either a party or ongoing evenings.
 The cocktail:
3 1/2 oz.  Bourbon
1/3 oz. Fernet Branca 
2/3 ozrooibos tea syrup (see right)
4 dashes of chocolate bitters
2 shaved strips of orange peel, avoiding the bitter pith, to serve

Rooibos tea syrup:
1 cup caster sugar
10 rooibos teabags
1 whole star anise
1 small cinnamon stick
4 black peppercorns
3 tbsp runny honey

Shake and serve.
