I wasn’t sure about this tea before I tried it. I found the smell a little strong and it put me off the taste, but I figured I would brew it up since I bought it. After brewing the scent leveled out and the taste was delicious. I can feel the licorice on the back of my throat. The flavour is extremely calming and well balanced. This seems like it would be the perfect tea to have in a nice warm bath, with some candles and a good book.
