Funny because I don’t taste much licorice in this tea! I bought this tea when I had a cold and the girls at Davidstea recommended this tea because of the licorice. Truthfully, it didn’t help my cold but I could taste it, that’s for sure. The chamomile is strong, and this tea is SO sweet, I was kind of taken aback that I didn’t need to add anything and it was already sweet on it’s own. Not necessarily a bad thing, I suppose. Honestly, I don’t know how I feel about this tea. I don’t hate this tea, but I’m not a big fan either. It’s not horrible by any means.
