Thank you to the lovely people at Stash for sending me some free samples of their new blends. Two of them are mate blends (high caffeine), so I decided to try this herbal today. I usually do one caffeine day and then two to five caffeine free days (except tiny amounts found in dark chocolate or decaf tea/coffee) so I do not risk getting addicted/depended on caffeine as a stimulant. I already sleep poorly, I can’t imagine trying to function if I’m tired every morning/crave caffeine on top of that.
Anyway, this is a nice mint/fennel/licorice root herbal. I’m not much for licorice root in teas because I don’t like the type of sweetness that licorice root/cinnamon/chicory have. Still, this blend is soothing and pleasant. The licorice root brings a metallic mineral flavour and a root flavour (which I like). The taste fits the name of the blend well. The flavour combination is indeed minty and licoricy, what more would you expect?
This is a great blend for someone who likes licorice root in tisanes. I happen not to, so I wouldn’t buy this again. However, as far as licorice blends go, this isn’t a bad choice.
