In Murchie's Honey Licorice, the tingling, sparkling licorice flavours come from licorice root, fennel and anise seeds and star anise.
Licorice haters shouldn't be afraid to try this tea, which is refreshing (a similar sensation to mint, without being minty), not a heavy black licorice flavour. The licorice flavours are lightened and balanced by the honey scent and flavour of Honeybush.
The longer you steep this tea, the more flavour will come out of the spices, and it won't get bitter like black or green tea would. If you're a fan of strong spice flavours, try simmering on the stove for 10 minutes rather than using a typical pour-over steep.
