Apparently I don’t enjoy licorice in my tea, no matter the amount. I thought this one might be better since it wasn’t the first on the ingredient list, whereas in Bravissimo, licorice was the first ingredient. It was better but alas it wasn’t that much better. Again, another I’m not going to rate because it will be too low and bring the entire rating of this tea down. At least now I know not to buy any more teas with licorice in them.

Oh yeah, I can’t stand licorice in my tea either! It doesn’t matter how much or little it is… if it’s there I’ll taste it and the tea will be disgusting to me.

Yeah, that seems to be the case with me. I never had licorice in my tea and the first one I tried, Bravissimo, it was the first ingredient listed. I thought, since in this one is was a bit further down the list, it wouldn’t be so bad. But unfortunately I could still taste it and I still didn’t like it.

Bio

I’m an avid tea drinker, it’s what I drink all day and why I’m here. I don’t sweeten my teas except for the occasional iced tea or cold-brewed tea. I typically brew my teas with a brew basket in a 12 oz cup. If I brew another way I will always note it.

Dislikes: black teas, milk flavored oolongs, hibiscus, red rooibos, licorice, dessert teas, mate, guayusa.

Loves: straight teas, especially Chinese green teas, sencha, jasmine, dan congs, mint, coconut.

My ratings are based mostly on the smiley faces. If a tea is of good quality but not to my taste preference I try not to rate it because I think that is unfair.

I drink a lot of the same teas and will not record every time I drink them. I log them the first time I try them and then again if I did something different and/or got different results.

I also try to keep my cupboard updated to what I actually have for those that wish to swap, although some of them are merely samples.
