This is a fantastic tisane. The licorice spice imparts a natural sweetness. However the licorice is artfully mitigated by a host of other spices that make this one of the best licorice teas I have ever tasted. This wonderful tisane tickles the tongue and lingers just the right amount of time. It has a great mouthfeel, despite the presence of the abundance of licorice spice. Because of the presence of licorice spice, this tisane can stain the palette for quite some time, though not as long as Stash’s verity. It makes a great after dinner, or evening drink.

A Story That Could Be True

If you were exchanged in the cradle and
your real mother died
without ever telling the story
then no one knows your name,
and somewhere in the world
your father is lost and needs you
but you are far away.

He can never find
how true you are, how ready.
When the great wind comes
and the robberies of the rain
you stand on the corner shivering.
The people who go by—
you wonder at their calm.

They miss the whisper that runs
any day in your mind,
“Who are you really, wanderer?”—
and the answer you have to give
no matter how dark and cold
the world around you is:
“Maybe I’m a king.”
