This is my last sample from Persimmon Tree Tea Company, and the one I’ve been avoiding. I didn’t know that star anise is similar to licorice when I requested this sample. I did realize it when I smelled the tea once it arrived. I really really don’t like licorice. Still, I tried to give this a fair chance, I really really did. But the licorice taste was to strong for me.

On the plus side, I’ve you’re a fan of licorice, this is a tea for you.

black licorice is just nasty, nasty stuff. Blech.

I’m starting to grow tired of green teas and green oolongs.
I’ve only recently began exploring straight blacks and puerhs, and I’ve been loving the one with cocoa and bread-like notes the most!
I’m also starting to drift away from flavored teas, but still like a good dessert tea every once in awhile.
I will always love a good chai.
I despise licorice and bacon.

Notes I like:
Cocoa, Bread, Caramel,
Nutty, Vanilla, Cream,
Honey, Butter, Maple, Marshmallow
Fruity, Berries, Lemon, Jasmine

Notes I don’t like:
Banana, Bacon, Licorice, Smoke, Astringency, Bitter, Rose
