As soon as I opened the packet, my first thought was “Dammit, Yogi! Do you have to put licorice in EVERYTHING?” It was all I could smell. Licorice and maybe berry.

However, I can’t taste it in the tea itself. It’s not that I hate licorice, I just don’t like it when it overwhelms. Which it does a lot with Yogi teas, in my opinion. Anyway, this stuff isn’t bad. The main flavors I detect are spearmint, lemongrass, a little cinnamon, and that herbal tea flavor I can never really put my finger on. I wouldn’t drink it again, but it isn’t terrible.

I totally agree about the licorice when it comes to Yogi Teas. I have tried three or four of their blends and I always think the same thing!

Bio

Quiet, strange, and in love with the world of tea. 20-something and living just outside of Atlanta. Cat lover, EBM/synthpop geek, balcony gardener, and collector of fossils. On the hunt for the perfect tea in each of my favorite categories.

I prefer black teas, but I’m trying to broaden my horizons. My favorites tend to be yunnan tips, earl grey, chai, and pretty much any black tea from Fujian, China. My favorite add-ons are plum, cinnamon, sage, apple, coconut, raspberry, lychee, bergamot, osmanthus, cucumber, lavender, vanilla, cardamom, ginger, and caramel.

I’m shy about green tea, curious about white, and learning to love oolong. I hate rooibos and anything with orchid, fennel, or jasmine.

I’m currently growing my own tea. I have a 3-year-old potted Camellia sinensis, and I plan on picking a tiny bit of new growth this spring for my first try at drying my own leaves.

Since joining, I’ve traded with: Kaliska, QueenOfTarts, LiberTEAS, JustJames, Spencer, Ninavampi, Jillian, Teafreak, KeenTeaThyme, and RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas.

You can assume that I’m preparing my tea using the Western method. I use zero-calorie sweeteners and in the hot months, I drink my tea almost exclusively iced.
