drank Lemon & Ginger by Clipper
2266 tasting notes

Via MissB and probably Sil. Thank you!

There is licorice in this. Sigh. A lot of these herbal teas have licorice. Thankfully it is just a strong dislike and not something I shouldn’t be drinking.

Smells strongly of lemon and ginger. Both lemon peel and juice, which is nice. And more strongly of lemon than ginger. I added some honey to offset any potential sickly flavours from the licorice.

Hmm. It’s not bad but whoa the licorice sweetness is out of this world. I’d prefer if it were just the lemony and gingery flavours.

Oh well. Thanks so much for letting me try this one! I always hope that they’ll work, and sometimes they do.

Sil

yeah. poop on licorice.

OMGsrsly

I know, right? D:

Sil

i actually love licorice..black, red etc… but the sweet from licorice root is terribad in teas

OMGsrsly

Red licorice isn’t real licorice Sil omg!!! :P It’s strawberry or cherry flavoured stuff. Hahaha. I adore black licorice but I can’t eat it. Haven’t found a good gluten free one yet.

Sil

shush. i heart black licorice…esp the double salted stuff.

MissB

Oh gosh, double zout is my favorite! OMG I’m almost positive Whole Foods has a gluten/grain -free black licorice. Glad you liked the tea though, kinda sorta, this was a night time mainstay while I was in the UK.

I could always go for some Harlekijn black licorice!

OMGsrsly

Mmm double salted licorice. :) I’ve seen one at whole foods, MissB, but it was a soft bar and the texture was really unappealing. Grainy from the rice flour they used. I’ll have to check for different kinds.

OMGsrsly

SAY WHAT?!?! They didn’t have this in store when I was there!!! https://www.squishcandies.com/en_ca/products/1613-Gluten-Free-Black-Licorice
