This is a pretty nice blend if you like the taste of licorice. There’s a lemon note as well but the licorice is pretty overwhelming. Anyway I like it but I’m a licorice fan. It also smells nice. :)
I don’t think anyone drinks this tea “for fun.” It wouldn’t help against something severe, like strep throat, but for a common cold or an annoying tickly throat feeling (such as the one I have currently), this tea is at your service. It relieves the irritation for a little while. I’d rather drink tea than take pills, though, so I may be biased.
This one tastes MUCH better than TM’s regular Throat Coat (I much prefer lemon over cherry bark… the cherry reminds me too much of cough syrup. Trying to gulp down a steaming mug of Robitussin? No thanks) and adding echinacea is always a good idea, in my opinion.
Well, it seems I’m catching a cold, right on the tail end of my flu experience. Joy!
I added some (local, organic, unprocessed) honey like the box suggests and it’s REALLY sweet (and I didn’t even add that much honey either). Good thing I like sweet and this is almost even too sweet for me.
I don’t like this tea much for taste because of my feelings on licorice but I’ll brave it due to my scratchy throat. It’s better now than it was this morning, but it’s still very uncomfortable.
I really need to get more sleep, although I doubt I’ll get it because I need to clean the house before the catsitters arrive on Friday and leave for the airport at 4:30am on Friday morning. So much fun.
I bought this tea because my throat has been itchy all evening and a friend of mine just came down with a flu, but I’m not sure if it’s a stomach virus or a real flu, and I’m an emetophobe, but I really don’t want either one anyway, so I’ve been dosing up on every herb in the house today (oregano oil, olive leaf, black walnut hull, echinacea and goldenseal, garlic, plus probiotics and ginger kombucha). The life of an emetophobe and hypochondriac is never dull. Anyway, on to the tea.
The licorice in this definitely ensures that you won’t want to add sugar. It’s almost too sweet for me, actually, but it almost has a cinnamon sweetness. There is, as other people have said, a sort of kick in the throat, but it’s not annoying and it doesn’t burn. I think that if my throat was actually sore, it might have a really nice effect on it. I kind of wish the earthy, root taste was a bit stronger in comparison to the licorice, and I don’t get very much lemon from it. I don’t think that’s necessarily a bad thing because it’s so flavorful already, but I prefer earthy and lemony to sweet and spicy. I don’t think I’d drink this just for the sake of having a cup of tea, because I’d prefer something more robust for that, but this is a surprisingly tasty tea, and I really love the ingredients.
