I don’t like licorice. That being said, I would’ve NEVER picked up this tea had I read the label past Root Beer. As it is, I’m glad I did. The dry leaves smell so strongly of licorice that my first thought was “What have I done?” But I decided to forge on through, to expand my tastes if nothing else. Luckily, something else. I really enjoy this tea. My first time having it there were loads of little floaties everywhere. I didn’t dig that. This time, I brewed using a Tsac instead of my infuser mug and I think it worked beautifully. Very enjoyable.
