drank Egyptian Licorice by Yogi Tea
10 tasting notes

Since I had been turned on to loose leaf teas, I began to stray away from tea bags, but I tried this one while visiting a friend and was very pleasantly surprised! I went into it with quite a cynical outlook (I thought myself quite a tea snob), but that all changed on my first sip: it started off spicy and warming, almost like a chai tea, but then the sweetness of what I assume was wither the licorice or stevia promptly set in and I could literally feel my mouth get coated by the sweetness. It was a very odd feeling that is difficult to explain, and should rather be experienced. I was shocked that nothing had been added to sweeten the tea, as the sweet aftertaste was almost overpowering (but in a good way!).

This tea served as a decent reminder to me that good tea can come in bags, and if I can figure out where to buy it then I shall definitely be stocking up very soon!
