Smells very exotic. I found the licorice very strong -it’s definitely the main note of this tea. It’s very tasty, soothing, and calming.

This was a swap tea, and I’m really glad I got to try it. Thanks Bethany!

Mmm mmm mmm. First big thunderstorms of the spring here, and I needed to brew up some warm, soothing tea. This completely fits the bill. Lots of licorice and sweetness.

Probably one pot left, darn it. First tea I’ve had all day since I’m feeling even worse than I did yesterday. Can’t taste much, but it is soothing my throat.

Out of herbals at work. Gonna have to raid the crappy bagged teas in the break room next.

I found Herb + Ginger at a local hipster craft fair over the summer. They’re online-only and they brew exclusively herbal teas, so I tasted a few before settling on Bollywood Star for a purchase. Man, is this good. This has become a staple evening and late morning tea for me – it’s extraordinarily refreshing from the ginger, cardamom, and licorice, and leaves a nice tickle in the back of the throat. I’m a sucker for licorice teas, and this has just enough without being overpowering.

I’m nearly done with my 3.5oz tin, so I’ll be reordering from their website soon. I might also order the Frosty Almond, which I tried at the fair and really liked.

The vanilla adds just a bit of softness to the Rooibos, and is quite tasty.
