5 Tasting Notes
They had this as a sample in store which I loved. When I made it at home however it wasn’t AS good but I still enjoyed it. Granted I rarely follow the recommended water temperature or tea amount cuz well, aint no nobody got time for that. It was slightly bitter when I made it which I actually kind of liked because as good as the store sample is it does have a slightly artificial taste. The artificial flavour comes through much more when its iced though. Overall I’d still recommend it. Especially with the weather warming up.
Seeing as I’m drinking my first cup right now I probably shouldn’t be writing a review yet but lets just go with it! First reaction?
I bought this hoping it would help with this cold I’m getting. So far its really soothing to my throat, and maybe its just a placebo thing, but i feel like its helping with my congestion. The taste however I’m not a fan of. The sweetness lingers and reminds me of stevia or any of those other artificial sweeteners that I find just taste horrible. I’m a tea newbie (got into tea like 6 months ago) so I have nothing to compare it to but if all licorice teas are this sweet I don’t think I’m a fan :s But it seems to be doing the job so I’m sure I’ll be able to work through this box… eventually.
