Growing up, I remember drinking this tisane at the helm of the family’s sailboat as the rain poured down. It is bold and unapologetically licoricey, though perhaps a bit to unapologetic. Which is why it doesn’t get a higher score. It is so heavily laden with licorice, that the natural sugars tend to bind to the tongue, leaving the palette stained for quite some time. However, it is a fantastic beginning tisane, especially if one is trying to get away from adding sweeteners. It is a battleship of a tisane, when perhaps a small frigate could do the job better. Yogi knocks this ball out of the park with their “Egyptian Licorice” tisane.
