I think I’m the only one in my family who really enjoys the taste of licorice. I like it, fennel, anise … basically anything with that sweet bite. I’m also a sucker for a chai, so the combination of fennel with cardamom gives me basically exactly what I want for an easygoing pick-me-up.

This was a tea I bought specifically to help with some stomach upset. Licorice root is great for calming, and the combination of it and fennel can really help if you’re having digestive issues.

When I don’t feel like a jolt of caffeine just yet, this is what I have.

Flavors: Cream, Licorice, Wood

Bought this as a Christmas gift for JP. He made it himself with “too much tea not enough water” and thought it was far too strong.

Fast forward a week with me making at at the listed prep specs, low and behold he liked it! It has nice sweet notes and is a pretty mellow Assam.

Preparation

Let me explain something. I am really clumsy. I have two delicate tumblers for when I want to feel elegant, and two stainless tumblers because I’m also a realist. This is my favourite of the two. Why?

I’ve dropped this sucker a number of times and not had to worry about it shattering or denting: it has one scratch on it roughly the size of a pinhead and I take this everywhere.

Like a lot of silicone seals, mine will try to leak if I’ve overfilled the bottle past the ring. It has kept hot tea hot for around 4-6 hours and ice tea iced for around the same time (sometimes there are even little bits of ice clinking around later).

I’m just as happy with this guy, who I got as a gift several years ago, as I am with the cousins that I use at work every day.

Simple and easy to use; when it gets dirty I just soak the plastic in vinegar and hot water.

Some of the batches of Goji Pop taste almost bitter when steeped for the suggested time and temperature. I know each spoonful is a little different, and it’s a favourite of quite a few of my friends. I like to have it on hand. :)

Good gracious. This is higher on the “things I dislike” list than most, containing both pineapple and coconut, but it’s so good!

Very fruity, very creamy. Great iced and hot, good with honey or your choice of alcoholic mixer (mine is white tequila).

Preparation

A great tea for when you’re feeling a little bit down or sick. Peppermint helps with sinuses and chest, lemon oil and caffeine help to refresh.
