I’ve had a sore throat for the past couple of days and had totally forgotten until today that I had a box of this! I’ve been drinking this when I’m sick since I was a child, so even aside from its actual effectiveness, I find the taste quite comforting. Of course, the fact that it IS quite effective is a happy bonus!
Like others, I’m not a huge fan of licorice, but I don’t mind it in this case, it goes well with the other flavors, and the sweet note that it adds to the taste was always a nice counterpoint to the miserableness of being sick as a child. Honestly, before I started making it myself, I used to think that my mother sweetened it to make me drink it. But no! Just naturally sweet.

Bio

I’m a Pole who grew up in Texas, is currently a graduate student in California studying Japan. How’s THAT for random?

Being Polish, my family has always drunk a lot of tea, and I am no different. I may drink more tea than water. On the other hand, I can’t say that I’m very particular about it; I’m generally pretty careless with steeping times and water temperature and I don’t even have a proper teapot (mostly because the lid broke during the move to California ;_;).

I always drink my tea unsweetened and I only add milk in the case of the most egregiously chai-ish of chais. (not really a big fan of milk in general)

Given that so many of my entries seem to be about my morning tea, I felt I should add something here about me and mornings: I fail at mornings. I fail at them a LOT. Therefore I often also fail at proper tea making in the mornings.
