Awe, this smelled so ultra licoricey in the shop’s sniffing jar. I figured licorice would be an excellent flavour to pair with rooibos, and to even cover up the base for the most part.

But the licorice hides away once steeped. It’s ridiculously subtle. At least the base isn’t overly woody. Better with some light cream. Maybe I’ll try to add a little more leaf or steep longer. Or something?

There’s always Sambuca…

As an expatriate Dutchie, is this like the traditional salty kind of Dutch licorice? Me, who travels far and wide to seek out Dutch licorice, would probably love this. Yeah I’d say steep it for longer. I once forgot I had brewed licorice tea, came back and the flavour had greatly intensified (=yum).

So cool that you used to live there! I wouldn’t call this a salty licorice. It’s more like a sweeter black one, al,let like wintergreen licorice. I’ve yet to come across a salty licorice tea. That would be really interesting.

Have any favourite brands? I love Harlequins/Harlekijns but they can sometimes be hard to find here.

Oh, when it comes to Dutch licorice anything goes. (we only get the kind that’s direct from Holland anyway, it’s all good :) I grew up with it and the salty kind was always… interesting. You either love it or hate it.

I’m sure that all these dutch licorice teas (the two that I have) come from the same company originally, I’m just stuck as to who that is exactly, so this review stays here.

Still a satisfying cup, and one that I’m really enjoying, although overleafing it a bit seems like my favorite way to have it.
