From Red Leaf Tea

The benefits of Licorice Tea although not so commonly known have been widely utilised since the ancient times.

The licorice plant is native to southern Europe and parts of Asia. Licorice is well known for being used as a sweet additive that is added to many types of candy. It is thought to be as much as 50 times sweeter than sugar. However, licorice has many more valuable uses than as a sweetening agent. In fact, Licorice is a powerful anti-inflammatory that can help to soothe arthritis. It also works to help the stomach make more mucus for its lining. This reduces problems with upset stomachs, ulcers, and acid indigestion. Apart from all these benefits, licorice can be a valuable herbal medication towards living a healthy lifestyle.

Licorice also offers the following benefits to name a few :

Digestion: This helps to prevent ulcers and other inflammations from occuring.
Expectorant: Helps to thin Mucus which is invaluable to asthmatics
Adrenal gland: This is helpful for someone with low adrenal functions.
Cholesterol: Studies showed that Licorice can improve overall cardiovascular health.
Anti-inflammatory: Licorice has been shown to have a mild anti-inflammatory affect.
Treats sore throats
Improves stomach ulcer healing
Reduces Diarrhea
Treats headaches
Are you ready to start benefiting from all these health bonuses? Then try our Licorice with our 100% pure Matcha Tea. Our Licorice Matcha Tea flavors and health benefits are retained as our raw and organic fruits are freeze dried and ground into powder to offer the best quality.

I am a licorice FIEND! Black Jelly Bellys are my favorite, my candy choice at the movie theater is usually Good and Plenty. I love the flavor of black licorice – a balance between spicy and sweet, with an intriguing minty undertone … oh so good!

And this has got the licorice flavor spot on. It’s a strong licorice note (my specs for this Matcha were my go-to specs: classic/basic grade with distinctive level of flavor), but it works with the rich, creamy, slightly buttery and vegetative notes of the Matcha. This particular flavor of Matcha is a little less balanced than some of the others, but I can’t really complain about that because the licorice flavor is so crisp and good. The aftertaste reminds me of Altoid’s Liquorice. oh yum yum yum!

I have to admit though, that I was a little scared to try it because I worried that because Red Leaf Tea had proposed a “new and improved” licorice flavor a few weeks ago when they were asking in the forums for input on new flavors to add to their already extensive line of flavored Matcha, and it made me worry that maybe the current Licorice flavor wasn’t good, and NEEDED to be replaced. But if this is the non-improved licorice flavor – KEEP IT. I can’t imagine it getting better than this. I really can’t!

If you like licorice, you should try this. But if you LOVE black licorice – you’ve GOT to try this. This one might just be my new favorite. Yeah… I love it that much!

I love licorice too! Most people don’t, but I go straight for the black jelly beans.

I am not a licorice lover at all, but one that tastes like the candy sounds much more appealing than that nasty cloying herbal licorice root taste!

Black jelly beans are my favourite! But for some reason, I’m not really a huge fan of licorice in tea. It’s possible that’s just because of the few (mediocre) experiences I’ve had, but it always somehow coats my tongue, which feels kinda gross. Besides the spot-on flavour, did you have that experience with this matcha? If not, I might have to add it to my shopping list.

I didn’t notice anything unpleasant about this tea. I loved it.

Good to hear!

I have such a love/hate relationship with licorice, and I had to try this one (found here: http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/licorice-matcha-organic.html), I just had to. Licorice in tea is one of my favorite things of all time, and the Licorice Mint tea from Red Leaf Tea is a must for me when I’m sick. And while I love allsorts, any other licorice candy is not for me. I just think it’s vile. Every Easter my mother would gleefully sit by as I sorted out all of the black jelly beans from my basket. She was the only one in the family who liked them. Is there anything more gross than popping what you think is a purple jellybean into your mouth, only to discover it was a horrible, horrible, licorice one? Blegh! But allsorts….mmm. They’ve become a bit of tradition in our family. They’re impossible to find in Tennessee, so when I’m sending a package to my folks I always include Coffee Crisp for my mom and allsorts for my dad. That is, if I can keep myself from eating them all before the package goes out! Trust me, it happens more often than I care to admit.

I kept eyeing this tea, adding it to my shopping cart and then removing it in favor of another flavor of matcha, adding it back to my wishlist. I finally bit the bullet and I’m here to find out if this is an allsort or a black jellybean.

It’s not a black jellybean at all! It is a lovely sweet licorice that soothes the throat and makes me unbelievably happy. I was very scared of this blend, but those fears were unfounded. It is delicious and definitely one I need to keep around for when I’m sick but I have to deal with work anyway. Completely lovely. It’s not really an allsort either, it’s the licorice I’ve come to know and love in teas. I should have expected that, but I was scared by the picture on the website.

Licorice tends to polarize people. You either love it or you hate it. I’m one of those who loves it, but my wife is one who hates it. If it’s in a tea, she can taste it, and it bothers her. But for me…oh, I love it and this matcha is beautiful in the balance of flavor to matcha. I want to make a large mug of this, but I have other matchas to taste and review!

Wow, I didn’t realize Red Leaf Tea makes so many different types of flavored matchas! Sooo soooo many!!! They even have flavors I’ve never even heard of before, like amla berry. Red Leaf is at the top of my shopping list!
