My sister slipped me a bag or two of this tea. Reason is simple, “If you like licorice then you will like this.” Ah, a challenge to the tea lover. Here reason was that it was something different and wanted to know what I thought of it. At the end she later gave me the rest because . . . that is right she did not like it.

Me on the other hand did my sensory (like at work for Nestle). The scent was of licorice (well what expect from a strong plant in smell and taste?). Noticing the the liqour held the typical color that the black tea gives. A sip (the first initial taste test) it did not matter what else was on the label as ingredients, because you are exposed to the flavorful discharge of licorice from the liquor. This might be to much for a person who does not care about licorice, but for me it was welcomed with another cup.

I will suggest this as in the catalog as nothing more as a dessert tea. A tea to be served after dinner alone or accompanied by some shortbread cookies (one of my favorite cookies for tea time). It is not a tea that I will drink all the time though.

I wonder if my teeth turned black like from eating black licorice? LOL

A fellow young man who indulges in the joyfulness of tea. I am the odd one in my family. For either they love coffee or pop, but I am the tea lover. I like to sample it like wine in identifying its characteristics. A family joke is that I was adopted, because of our German heritage. Either way I raise a cup to new friends and old one too. Is it tea time?
