Very interesting. Tastes like an oolong for sure. Then after about half a cup I started to get an odd sweet aftertaste. The sweet definitely does linger. Raritea is right – there is a slight numbing sensation. I didn’t come back and read the description before I tasted this so I didn’t remember what to expect. I would not have identified what I was tasting as liquorice root but yeah, after reviewing it is definitely liquorice.
Personally, not my preference and I won’t be keeping it in my cabinet, but it is precisely what the description says it is and it seems to be of decent quality so my rating is based on that and not on whether or not I’ll order it. If you like oolongs, you’ll probably like this one.
