A sample from Miss B! Looking at the ingredients in this one, I wasn’t really expecting it to taste of root beer, per se. It kind of does, though! I used 1 tsp of leaf for my cup, and gave it approximately 4 minutes in boiling water. The scent is almost right – sweet and creamy, with an underlying almost medicinal tang, but the initial sip is heavily “herbal”. It seems to take a moment for the different flavours to pull together, and initially the predominant notes are aniseed, star anise and liquorice root. Somehow, they all eventually coalesce to create a pretty convincing “root beer” effect, although it has to be said mostly in the aftertaste. I’m particularly enjoying the deep, dark molasses-like flavour in combination with black liquorice, and the tiny hit of vanilla that this one presents. Not my favourite herbal, but well worth a try!
So… there’s fennel seeds, cinnamon, star anise, LOADS of licorice root, and some weird leaves and sticks I can’t identify by sight. There’s probably more in this tea, but I can’t tell without a microscope for sorting.
This would be really good without the intense, terrible, lingering sweetness from the licorice root. Oh geez that stuff is terrible. :/
MissB, thanks so much for sharing this tea and alerting me to the fact that Sweet Cherubim has some teas. :) I don’t think I’ll be getting this one again.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Licorice, Sugar, Sweet
I ran out, and eventually bought $4.32 more of it, which works out to about 100g. Score! Made it iced today, and while I like it better hot, it’s still damn tasty tea. Sweet anise today mostly, with some hints of sasparilla.
Flavors: Anise, Root Beer, Smooth
I definitely need to grab more of this soon, and get the full ingredient list. This tea solely got me through the night last night – it was comforting and soothing with the dry, scratchy, raw throat, and more so than any other tea I had last night.
One of the few handblended teas that Sweet Cherubim makes that has zero ingredients listed. Having said that, I can see large pieces of star anise and fennel everywhere… the rest could be almost anything. It tastes surprisingly like root beer, and smells even more so – I’m assuming there’s sasparilla root in it. I love this tea!
