Pukka Days of Christmas#23
I love licorice, but as far as I know there is the black one (“drop” in Dutch) and the wooden one (“zoethout” in Dutch), and while the black one is very easy to get hold of in sweets and such, the latter is mainly a memory from my childhood. My mother would buy me a stick of it, and I would suck it for a long time, until I would be fed up with it. I´m pretty sure that there are still unfinshed sticks like that in drawers of my room at my parents´place. And the Dutch word says it all : zoethout = sweet (zoet) wood (hout). When I smelled the tea I went down the memory lane immediately…and I loved it, until – once again – I was fed up with it, mainly because I realized it was very sweet indeed. For once a treat, not to have regularly though.
