I have a few bagged teas that I drink periodically, and this is one of them. It has a strong licorice flavor (licorice root is the first ingredient, so no surprise there). It is also minty, and sweet- a little weird tasting, but it covers up the valerian root, which tastes and smells like stinky feet. I drink it because it helps me go to sleep at night. If it weren’t for that, I probably wouldn’t bother. It is palatable but not great.
