If you’ve been around for a hot minute, you know that I love me some licorice root teas. That said: when a licorice root tea is bad, it’s BAD. There’s a fine balance when you’re dealing with something so naturally sweet (hi, have you met my friend stevia leaf?), and it can be tricky for a tea to knock it outta the park.
This tea? Knocked it outta the park! The sumptuous sweetness of licorice root is beautifully balanced here by the herbaceousness of the lemon verbena and gentle spice from the turmeric. I love any tea with beneficial herbs, and this one delivers across the board with calming tulsi and balancing ashwaghanda.
It’s not often that I find myself choosing bagged tea over my beloved loose leaves, but this is a blend that I love to keep on hand for a quick brew at night, or for an afternoon pick-me-up in my desk drawer. Sweet, indeed!
Here’s the scoop!
