The Mount of Olives varieties I’ve tried up to this point have been surprisingly nice. This one doesn’t live up to the standard, but only because I am not a licorice fan. They’ve used it as sweetener in an otherwise nice chamomile and now I feel like somebody’s rubbed a glue stick on my tongue!

Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

Oh, no! I didn’t know licorice was in this. A friend at work gave me a bunch of this to try. I may have to open it tonight to see how bad it is!

why do people toss licorice in everything :(

Wish I knew! (I’m not a big sweetener fan in general.)

The same reason they put hibiscus in everything, I guess.

Bio

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
