I absolutely love this tea!! I could drink it allll day! The sweet after-taste is so good and I find it good to drink before bed or if I’ve got a sore throat. I haven’t been able to find it except in a sampler pack of teas, I’m on a mad hunt!

I love, love this tea! I use it as an after dinner drink. I think it smells heavenly—as does my husband (who doesn’t actually drink it.) I do make it in a 12 oz. cup so perhaps is a bit milder this way—add a dash of stevia to make up for the weaker brew and yum! I especially love the aftertaste; I try to sip it over a long period just to enjoy this aspect.
At first, I didn’t like this tea. I thought it was an odd flavor, and wondered how I’d ever finish my box of it.
But after a few cups I fell in love. I usually add honey to my tea, but no need with Licorice Spice! It’s sweet and flavorful enough as it is! I’ve shared this with friends who love it as well. It’s a great pick me up when I need something a little sweet during afternoons at work :)
I normally like Stash teas and since I liked the Organic India licorice tea so much I went on a limb and bought a 100pack of this from Amazon.
I LOVE it. It’s really a treat and very fragrant. When I brew a cup and take it into a meeting, my coworkers always ask what smells so good. It’s a very smooth tasting tea with a pleasant aftertaste. If you’re into licorice you will really like this tea. I managed to make it through the whole 100 bags.
I enjoy this tea as it soothes my sore throat with the coating it leaves, and when honey is added, it is even smoother. I have never been a big fan of licorice as a candy, however, I will definitely keep purchasing this as a tea for my “stash”. If it does increase blood pressure, well, as they say, all things in moderation. I will not make this a daily drinker.
I tried this tea from a set that I received as a gift from a friend for Christmas, and as one who’s partial to the taste of licorice I was extremely disappointed. The smell seemed welcoming and familiar, and upon first tasting it I was pleased. It had a pleasant, light licorice flavour.
However, the aftertaste of this tea was extremely sweet, and it quickly became overpowering. I couldn’t decide exactly what flavour it was that had me so displeased, but after a few more attempts at trying this tea it went to waste.
Such a shame, as I have such fondness for Stash teas, and licorice, but this is not one that I’ll try again.
