I quite like this tea. I’m not a fan of licorice, but it follows the minty taste very nicely. It’s a soothing tea, with a mild spiciness, quite a nice aroma, and it’s very good for both cold days and digestive problems.
“This is very much a two-note sort of tea. First you get the cooling, herbal, almost bitter taste of the mint. Then, as that fades out, the sweet, almost sugary licorice flavour fades in to take...” Read full tasting note

I am a huge licorice fan so to find this taste in a tea is excellent and makes it an automatic favorite for me. Because I really want to get that taste out I prefer this tea steeped for several minutes, and it doesn’t taste as strong if you re-use the tea bag a second time (as I often do at work) so that brings my rating down a bit. I agree with the other notes that the mint isn’t a strong component, but its hard to say without a direct comparison to their non-mint version. I’ll definitely try that one as well. This tea is definitely flavorful enough on its own that you shouldn’t need any milk or sweeteners.
