I bought this at the tea festival hoping to find a replacement for the Butiki licorice chai I love. Except after searching for so long(and thanks for all the licorice! sorry, couldn’t resist) of course it didn’t need to be chai, just licorice! I have a chai sugar that I can add to it when I want so I do have some options :)
Anyhow. Opening the tin, I didn’t find much of a scent. Vague herbally licorice followed by a basic black tea aroma. I wasn’t put off though, as I know how potent licorice is.
After steeping for three min, I added milk and maybe a third tsp of sugar.
The verdict? Yum. A great balance between the tea and licorice. I’m also loving that medicinal tingle on my tongue. Oh also, the licorice part does evolve as the cup cools. It has more of an anise and fennel influence when hot, and a straight licorice/fennel note as it cools. I’m really liking it.
Next time, I’ll try it with my chai sugar :)

So the latest (and my last) Postal Teas box included teas from this company. I’m pretty puzzled, since black licorice is definitely one of those polarizing flavours that some people just always hate. So why would you include it in a subscription box? Unless you’re not trying to entice people to your brand so much as you’re trying to get rid of old stock that’s not selling.

Anyway. I’m one of those people who do like black licorice so this is something that might work for me, but the smell of the dry tea is… odd. And the smell of the steeped tea is… still odd. Definitely a bit licorice-y, but not a lot. The taste is… like, I can taste what I’m coming to think of as “generic cheap ceylon base tea”, and I can taste the licorice root (which doesn’t actually taste anything like black licorice), and there’s this sort of… old, musty, herbal tea kind of flavour. And there’s some astringency building up in my mouth. Nope, do not like.
