Yessssssss. Did you know I like licorice? If you like licorice, you might like this tea. Oh, and I guess there’s cinnamon and fennel and orange in here too but mostly it’s just sweet sweet licorice.

I feel relaxed after drinking this, but I also feel like I should go and brush my teeth again too. Is it magic-stress relief tea? I don’t know, but at least I have a better idea of what kind of herbals I enjoy!

I love licorice! :)

OMGsrsly

I picked all the licorice out of mine… :D If I could replace it with fennel (magically, so I don’t miss any bits), it would be perfect. If you like lemongrass, the Tumeric Ginger one is similarly licoricey.

OMGsrsly

And… you’ve tried it. D’oh!

Cavocorax

:P I wish it wasn’t so hard to tell if people had tried other teas! I don’t understand what order the tasting notes are in when you look at a tea!

But I picked up a sample during their last sale because it was less than a dollar and I was losing nothing! I’m not normally into turmeric or ginger though.

OMGsrsly

That would be super nice, but it took 2-3 weeks to get back to me about merging Zen Tea and Zen Tea Life, so I think they’re pretty busy. (Note: They’re merged now! The Canadian companies are together.)

Cavocorax

Awesome – thanks for getting all of that organized. Messy databases drive me crazy. :P

A review of Anti Strain by Zen Tea life

Company: Zen Tea life
Tea Name: Anti-Strain
Tea Type/Varietal: herb
Region: India
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: cup/ loose leaf
Liquor Color: light yellow
Leaf Characteristics: the leaves and coloring appears to be a bright green-yellow mixture with bits of cinnamon pieces, ginger pieces, fennel, orange peels and plenty of licorice roots.

  1. Steepings

1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 200 Fahrenheit
Time: 5 minutes

I am finishing off some teas that I found from earlier on in the year. This one is an Ayurveda herbal tea made to help ease off the days stress and I so need it. I take the remainder of this tea and put it in my tea cup and adding some freshly drawn tap water to my cup I put it in the microwave for two minutes and left to steep a few minutes more; about five minutes total.

Tea’ aroma is lovely fruity and herbal aroma with the cinnamon and ginger roots with the orange peels kicking and biting at ones’ nostrils. As I sip of this tea, the licorice flavoring is very strong, making this tea too sweet for me. I don’t like licorice so this is not as enjoyable a cup of tea for me. I had forgotten about the headiness of the licorice roots. Other wise this tea should be most enjoyable for those favoring herbal / Ayurveda teas.

2nd Steeping:
Water temperature: 200 Fahrenheit
Time: 5 minutes

I tried to have more steeps of this tea to try and unfortunately the licorice roots is still the major top note for this tea; drowning the other flavorings all together. I insist that it is because I do not like licorice and others liking herbal/Ayurveda teas will love, love this tea.

I love licorice root, have for 15 years now, from my first bag of Stash Licorice Spice…despite how I can see how it’s very sweet and vaguely reminiscent of Sweet n’ Low which I think is vile. Weird huh. Anyway, as a lover of licorice root, I really enjoy this one. It’s sweet and calming, perfect for its claims of being a good destressor before bed.

I was very excited to try this tea, not only do I need every anti-stress thing available, I also really like licorice. This tea has a nice spicy smell to it dry. Once brewed it smells like cinnamon and cardamom, but it has a great licorice and fennel taste. If you like licorice, you should really like this tea. I only purchased a sample of this tea, but I can see restocking with a larger amount next time I order.

I picked all the licorice out of mine. :)

JustJames

by the by…. would you like me to send my ‘evening lights’ by zen to you? =0)

Suziqzer

Love the intro to your description!

MissB

Heh, I reference Batman a lot. :)

Not a bad idea to pick out the licorice, although, I do like licorice… more so the black salty licorice though than anything.

JustJames: I’m always happy to have more Zen, although I’ll have a LOT of it coming my way soon enough. Stay tuned for that news.

Shmiracles

should i reference batman in this conversation/comment/text/email etc?

the only right answer is always YES.

OMGsrsly

I just can’t deal with licorice root in tea. :) I’ll try it, but chances are it’ll end up getting poured out.
