I really like this tea so much! I enjoy licorice teas in general for their natural sweetness and this one in particular is pretty strong which I like. I know some people wouldn’t like it because of how sweet it is, so this definitely isn’t for everyone. I don’t even have much of a sweet tooth normally but there’s just something about the type of sweetness in licorice teas that I just love! If you’ve never had this type of tea I’d suggest trying it to see if you also like it! I find this tea very soothing to drink and it really calms my stomach if I have a stomach ache. The aroma is also pretty good, smells like cinnamon!

Licorice. Licorice, licorice, licorice. This is the strongest of the licorice teas I've tried to date, which I appreciate because I prefer tea that has an assertive--although not necessarily strong--flavor. But I would agree with Alex with respect to the sweetness--this is not a tea that should be consumed with a sweetener. And if you prefer a tea that has more bitterness, another choice might be better-suited.

This blend was far too sweet for me, which is perhaps understandable given that licorice is naturally sweet, and it was the first and main ingredient, and the second ingredient was cinnamon bark, which is also naturally sweet.

Aroma is dominately licorice but has much complexity. I notice the cinnamon too, but have trouble discerning the other ingredients.

Leaves interesting sensations on the palate...pleasant and slightly tingly.

I did not enjoy it though because I am used to drinking my teas unsweetened and I found the sweetness cloying. I recommend this one only to people who normally like to enjoy adding sugar or other sweeteners to their tea--and I recommend tasting it before sweetening it because it is VERY sweet on its own.

Also, as a second note, licorice is known to raise blood pressure, so if you have high blood pressure, I also recommend avoiding this one.

immediately impressed. much more than i expected. the licorice taste is strong but by no means overpowering- the other flavors are subtle but excellently balanced. it's surprisingly delicate, too.
