I am loving this as a winter tea. I really don’t think I would enjoy it in the summer. As my profile says; chammomile is one of my all time faves, and the flavor in this is very subtle as it’s dominated by licorice. I am usually not a licorice fan, but there is something in this blend that makes it really great. The licorice is STRONG in this one. Very soothing to a sore throat, especially with a bit of honey.
