I would have thought this tea would have an overwhelming flavor of licorice, but this is not the case.
It is a delicious blend, which I would assume the cola nuts and mullein flowers help level out the flavor.
True to it’s description, it has a very warm nostalgic feeling, bringing me back to the 70’s. Of course, I wasn’t born in the 70’s but for some strange reason, I feel like I’m there.
I have decided to revisit this tea, among others, as it has been sitting on my tea shelf for close to a year.
Unlike Shaktea’s Marzipan, Cola Licorice doesn’t seem to be affected by the time just sitting there unsteeped.
There is still a very warm and nostalgic deliciousness to this tea, that is probably even more nostalgic given it’s age; the very brown colors of the 70’s, the stale dusty faux-sophistication scents of wood and polyester.
It’s a strange yet comforting feeling, considering I was born in the 80’s, but very much fuels the attraction of this tea.
I’m not quite sure when there is an appropriate time to drink this particular tea, maybe on a snow day, when roads are closed and you are stuck at home, sprawled out on your shag carpet close to the fireplace.
I’m not much of a licorice person, but this is quite a satisfying tea. It blankets you with warmth and triggers fond memories, probably because of the significant licorice aroma.
