Another one of my favorite teas from 52Teas. If Chocolate Banana Rooibos is my favorite, I would have to say that this one comes in a close second. I love it.

And… an interesting side note, every time I brew this tea (or even happen across it as I sort through my stash to find a tea to brew) I hear that song “Knights in White Satin” from the Moody Blues playing in my head. I realize that the song is WHITE SATIN and not Black Satin, but tell my head that. LOL I love that song – so mysterious and beautiful…

And this tea is so good. The licorice flavor is the BEST of any other licorice flavored tea I’ve tasted (a close second would be Golden Moon’s White Licorice, which is also quite special to me because my favorite ice cream flavor is Tillamook’s White Licorice…but I digress) The cinnamon is not a sweet cinnamon, rather than a spicy-hot type cinnamon flavor, and the sweetness of the cinnamon cuts through some of the sharper notes of the licorice perfectly.

An AWESOME tea!

OOoh…licorice flavored ice cream…

Lori: It’s awesome awesome AWESOME! But the only place I’ve ever found it is at the Tillamook dairy in Tillamook OR… we visit that area about once a year or so, so whenever we visit, I make a point to make a trip to the dairy for ice cream! A once a year treat! LOL

I totally agree, this one is really good. I like it with a bit of milk too.

(Also, I’m pretty sure it’s nights in white satin, but now I’m getting mental images of knights wearing satin on top of their plate armor and everything, so I think I like your version best!)

LiberTEAS

LOL! Angroboda, you’re probably right, it probably is Nights in White Satin… I guess the romantic artist in me sort of envisions KNIGHTS when I hear this song. And… when I drink this tea…

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:
http://www.teareviewblog.com

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
