135 Tasting Notes
Well I bought this tea because it was on clearance and I love all of the ingredients. When I smelled it for the first time it smelled like a baked plum. When I brewed it I could smell the hibiscus and licorice more then the plum. With the first sip I would taste the plum right away then the licorice towards the back of my mouth.
Then came the hibiscus and the licorice again. The plum disappeared on me.
I love REAL licorice tea. I think it’s pretty simple yet complex. One of my go to teas. It is one of the only teas that I will always buy that is bagged. I will not quit it…lol. It is a staple for me. With a touch of cream it is a delight. I have even made it on the stovetop with milk, then put it in the fridge to cool.it makes a nice ice tea.
I have even surprised a few friends that swear up and down that they hate licorice. I pour them a glass of this over ice, and they lap it up. Which makes me laugh since they keep saying they hate licorice, but love this.
Vanilla is the star of this tea and it should be. It’s a nice soothing treat at the end of the day. Although the vanilla is at the fore front the other spices do hit afterwards. After I swallowed the third sip I could taste them more, which made me even happier since I love chai. When I first smelled it before brewing I was a little worried that the other spices would be lost. They are there…
