My first thought was ‘pleh’, but the second mouthful was delicious (god bless my inability to pour stuff away/throw stuff out – even though it means I’ll be finishing that box of foul white tea dust from Jackson’s.)
It seems like the first sip coats my mouth (possibly because of the liquorice?), then the rest tastes good, and I think to eat or drink anything else while having this would be a mistake; it’s one to sit and savour on its own. It’s warming and a little spicy, and it’s really soothing my sore throat. The liquorice is definitely the strongest flavour, avoid it if you’re not keen, but the rest of the ingredients balance it out so it’s not as stringy as liquorice tea can taste.
I’ll be buying more, probably when I need to restock my stash of fillable teabags from Leaf (those are very useful, and they let the leaves unfurl more than other empty teabags I’ve tried.)
