This is one that will probably grow on me. After loathing licorice for most of my life, I’ve become a huge fan of it in the last year or two – not the sweet licorice sticks, but actual licorice root. This tea has a lot of that, as well as cinnamon bark and Indian black tea. The result is much creamier than I expected.

I can taste a slight bite from the cinnamon, but mostly this tastes like a creamy version of a licorice herbal tea that I have (and love). I wish there was a bit more of that refreshing licorice taste, but this is good nonetheless.

I’ve had the same experience with it. I liked it the first time I tried it, and then I’ve liked it more and more every time I’ve had it since. I’m getting a little concerned about running out. If it’s still around after next payday and the financial situation isn’t completely shot to a bad place with unexpected bills (I have a suspicion I might get one…), I’ll definitely have to get another one of that. Or try to recreate something similar. There are only three left of it though, so I’m not getting my hopes up about it.

I’m (almost) always up for a trade, so comment on a tasting note if you’re interested. I try to keep my cupboard up to date.

I’m a 23 year-old grant writer who loves having a good strong tea by my side as I write. I love The Mountain Goats, cooking, the Steelers, writing, beer, and singing in my office band.
