Instant Color when steeping!
It’s a slightly murky light brown.

Smells like Liquorice and Peppermint prior to steep. Smells more like a typical medicinal tea once steeped.

The sip…

HOLY MOTHER OF GOD!

It made me cough it’s so strong!

It’s REALLY Liquorice!!! And slightly Peppermint! WOW!

This is really intense…distracting.

BUT…it almost makes you want to see if you have the ‘hair on your head to handle it’.
If Steepsters would chant “Chug! Chug!” it would be the FRAT of Tea around here!

WOWZA! I’m going to try to finish it but I’m not sure…I think I will stay neutral for the time being…will try and play with this to see if understeeping would help.

I think we should create a Greek Name for us steepsters and it will be our Fraternity and Sororities!

Is it only peppermint and licorice root? My colleagues drink a lot of that. They leave the bag in throughout the day and just add more water when it’s running low.

TeaEqualsBliss

yes. Liquorice root and pure peppermint leaves.

HOLY CRAP! I couldn’t do it
That could knock a barnacle off the side of a boat!

I don’t know how strong it gets towards the bottom of the pot, though. I don’t really like it much myself. They add more water when they’re about two thirds down or so, because that sort of fits with when we have our lunch, so they never seem to get the really strong stuff.
There could also be some difference in strength between theirs and yours. I think they use a ‘normal’ amount of leaves when they make it (at least I do when I’m the one doing the hot bevvies), but there could be a difference in quality. Don’t know about the general quality of Teapigs, but I’m not all that impressed with the shop in which they buy theirs. Five or six great big constantly running coffee mills in the window of the shop is a bit of a turn-off for me.

I LOVE their straight peppermint leaves tho! It’s the BOMB!
