At first glance this tea just looks like mulling spice and the idea of warm licorice sounds satisfying. All of the ingredients sound alluring but I can literally only taste the licorice. I tried to sip on this one to see if there were any subtle changes but every sip was like a slap in the face.

If you’ve ever had pure licorice nibs, just imagine melting that down and pouring it into water. The last time I tasted licorice this strong was when I purchased a tin of hard candy in Venice. Having been only familiar with Twizzlers as my reference for licorice (hah!), it was quite a surprise. That said, if you like strong (cloyingly sweet) licorice, then you’ll love this!

I love sweet desserty teas the most but I also appreciate a full-bodied Earl Grey or a refreshing cup of green tea.

Lately I’ve been looking for teas to make lattes -teas that mix well with non-dairy milk.
