I love that some proceeds from this tea goes to a person in need, that is awesome! Now, this tea looks pretty good for a bagged tea…it’s full loose leaf tea and not chopped up tiny pieces of “tea”. Now, I did not realize that this had licorice root in it or I would have skipped out on this one and tried a different one. BUT since I didn’t realize that until much later, oh well. You can taste the green tea, a nicely vegetal – sweet grass taste with a touch of citrus. Now, the licorice root comes into play in the aftertaste…maybe even a bit before, it hits the back of my tongue and makes itself known! To me the mixture of the citrus and the licorice root melds together and reminds me of lemongrass, not bad if you like lemongrass, but unless I am eating a Thai dish of some sort I don’t care for a lemongrass taste in my drink. But other than that this is pretty good, just don’t be fooled thinking this is going to be a peachy tasting green tea :-)
