"Maybe this tea is good for you... I'll never know because I can't get past the taste. It tastes extremely sweet, but not in a good way. I had trouble just getting through my first glass, and it will be my last. It might be better with certain additives like cream or lemon, but there were so many teas out there, why would I bother drinking one that I had to work at to make palatable? The flavor reminded me of the sickenly-sweet teas at Teavana, but even stronger. I'll see if I can find someone to give it to."
"I purchased this tea because I had read somewhere that licorice root is good for soothing the adrenal glands. My adrenals are pretty much shot due to a lot of stress and I drink this tea to calm them down. I especially like drinking this tea several hours before bed; I think it helps me sleep better. I also like the spicy ginger taste. I sweeten it with a bit of stevia and it's delicious!"
"The Egyptian Licorice is a nice, mild flavor that I really enjoy. I use one tea bag in an oversized cup (16 or 20 oz), and it is never too weak. I also like to add this to other teas that are less flavorful or that are too strong. This is great if you want tea without caffeine. I like to sometimes brew it with green tea, or with Yerba Mate, which is too bitter for me on its own. My stomach is too sensitive for coffee, so when I need caffeine in the morning I make a strong cup of tea combining Yerba Mate and black tea, adding this Egyptian Licorice to make the tea tolerable (otherwise it is overwhelmingly bitter and strong). This is definitely one of my favorites, as I enjoy it in multiple ways. The Egyptian Licorice Mint is also good."
"I was surprisingly shocked when I steeped a cup of this Yogi Eygptian Licorice Tea. I wasn't sure if it was truly going to have that anise flavor that I chase in "other brands" of teas, and am usually let down. This tea has it, that indescribable, sweet/spicy, distinctive taste of anise and fennel. I was in love from drop one until I saw the very bottom of my cup, completely empty. Only the lonely teabag, hanging there on the edge, wondering if it gets to go swimming in a nice hot bath again to please my tastebuds. *****Simply divine. Now that I'm almost out, I've rushed back to vitacost.com to re-order. Will wait anxiously for my box in the mail."
"I've been experiencing digestive programs and this tea, along with Yogi Ginger Tea and a little honey seem to be helping. It's also delicious by itself without sweetening. I've often purchased herbal teas that have little taste and use 2 bags, but this flavor is rich and one bag is really all you need per cup."
"I buy this for a friend who really likes it and has been drinking it almost everyday for the past 3 years. It blends very well with other teas (try it with mint in the summer, or a spicy rooibos in the winter), it's naturally sweet and caffeine-free. Quite a few colleagues, who do not normally drink tea, like this one (and many other Yogi Tea flavours) a lot."
