This one smelled so good, but then I tasted it.

Oh. Licorice root.

Oh.

Sorry tea. The licorice root and the fact that you taste a little swampish means that you’re going to join the last tea in the sink, and I’m going to go hunt down yet something else to try. Thanks for sharing, MissB, but this one was a total miss. So sad, because it smells amazing.

You and me both when it comes to that bloody root!

OMGsrsly

I drank all the Twinings Raspberry and Echinacea, but there was so little licorice root in it that the honey I added drowned it out. This tea? Sadly, not so much. :( Smelled so promising too.
