So this one just made its way into the “5 oldest teas” box that sits on my tea nook counter. It’s from October of 2018, purchased when I was in Nîmes, France for work, and I don’t think I’ve steeped it up since the first time I tried it. Not sure why that is, some teas just get forgotten about in my (oversized) cupboard heh heh…
But wow, I just had to write a note and say, I can’t believe how much liquorice flavor is still here! As soon as I opened the tin, I was surrounded by the sweet scent of Good & Plenty candies. I’ve actually tossed a couple of old Dammann teas recently because there was no flavoring left, so I was quite surprised by this one.
Anyway, it’s a sweet-tasting tea with a classic black liquorice candy flavor. The base is extremely mellow and smooth, just a vehicle for the flavoring really. A very niche tea, but I’m enjoying it as a sort of afternoon dessert today. :)
Flavors: Anise, Candy, Licorice, Smooth, Sweet
