I like the taste and aroma of licorice. I’m not a fanatic (I know some people who are, but I suspect I know more people who don’t like it) but it’s nice to have occasionally.

I’ve been impressed by American Tea Room in general. I have no affiliation with them, but they have teas that are most certainly on my list of “must haves”. I ordered a sample size of Cabochon and set it aside for a while. I was waiting for one of those days when the thoughts of licorice crept into my mind. Today, gray, gloomy, and wet, seemed like a perfect day for a strong flavor that pops.

And it did and it does! The anise is strongest in the aftertaste. The taste itself is warm and honied and the anise remains on the tongue and lingering around the nose. Cabochon would be a treasure for any licorice fanatics out there and would make a superb gift if you know any. For someone who enjoys licorice, as I do, it’s a nice hefty brew with a really tasty authentic flavor. I know that synthetic licorice can be simply dreadful. This is pure and true and I’ll invest in a larger package. Cabochon (which means a kind of treatment for a gemstone) is perfect for the upcoming chilly weather.

Drinking a big ol’ mug of this before I meet up with a friend for lunch downtown and a tour of the Victorian Village because I’m working with less than 6 hours sleep (that’s standard for lots of friends of mine, but I’m an “8 hours or catatonic” type myself…must be all those academic nerd years as a teen only getting 1 or 2 every night, broke my body somehow ugh). Like everything I’ve tried from ATR, smells great.
