Warming and Naturally Spicy Sweet. In college I thought about becoming an archaeologist and go as far as a course on Egyptian civilization. I always had a fascination with the pyramids artwork and historical intrigue of that early empire. Career and life took me in other directions but I finally got to take a vacation there last year. The highlight of the trip was getting up before dawn and taking a fifteen-minute cab ride from Cairo to Giza - the home of the sphinx and a grouping of three pyramids. I got there just in time to see the sunrise on the eastward-facing sphinx. Nothing can prepare you for this experience. There they stand in the middle of the endless desert seemingly rising out of nowhere with Cairo a mirage in the distance. I remember placing my hands on the cool limestone of the Pyramid of Cheops imagining myself in the court of a great pharaoh. Before heading back to my hotel I stopped at one of the little shops that sell an endless array of perfumes and spices for tourists. I bought small handfuls of licorice cinnamon and orange peel which I still have today. At home in the quiet of early dawn I sit with my cup of Egyptian Licorice® and its familiar scents from that little shop and I am royalty in the land of the great pyramids. Serving Your Spirit®.

"The Egyptian licorice tea is one of those rare teas that do not require sweetener. It is naturally sweetened and tastes great with or without milk. This, and the skin detox are two of my favorites from the Yogi line because they a great just steeped without added flavor."
"This is a great tea for me. I make a big pot of it every morning, using 4 teabags and drink it throughout the day. It's become a good alternative to coffee, and has helped me break the caffeine habit. It's got a great flavor, with just the right amount of licorice. The other flavors make it perfect."
