I wore a perfume featuring licorice root today (Lolita Lempicka au Masculin Eau de Minuit), so it seems only fitting that I should brew up a lovely after-dinner cup of Stash Licorice Spice “tea”, of which I have consumed untold hundreds over the years.
The filter bags work just find for this herbal blend—there is no virtue is “loose leaf” when there are no leaves! Licorice Spice lists a variety of ingredients beyond the dominant licorice root:
cinnamon, orange peel, Chinese star anise, vanilla flavor, sarsaparilla, orange oil, cinnamon flavor, clove bud oil, and cardamom oil
All of this just adds up to dessert in a cup par excellence. What a great choice for dieters this would be—provided that they like the taste of black licorice. It is said (by Stash and others) that licorice root is fifty times sweeter than sugar, and I do believe that it’s true! Apparently Cleopatra availed herself of licorice as a beauty aid. So drink up!!!!!
I give this herbal blend a high rating because I do not really know how it could be much better. This is an excellent licorice root infusion, so I am comparing it to the Platonic Form of licorice root infusion, not the Platonic Form of tea…
