Product Description


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.

Originally blended: 2014

Lovely LicoriceReview by Paisley’s Pick
Lovely licorice flavour without being heavy handed. I’ve only tried steeping it but will certainly try boiling for 10 minutes for a fuller bodied flavour. Excellent blend. (Posted on 2020-01-06)
Sugar Free and YummyReview by Kos
Nice cup of tea particularly after dinner in the evening or before bed. I found liked it brewed stronger than 1tsp per cup. I liked my cup of tea bold, rather than on the mild side.
I used 11/2 to 2 tsp per cup. I like it better than a grocery store licorice brand. Their has clove oil which I detest. I just saw the recommendation to boil it on the stove for 10 mins for a stronger flavour then enjoy. I'm in! I love Licorice but cannot eat it anymore, so this is my new licorice fix being a diabetic. (Posted on 2017-02-28)
My go to herbal teaReview by Niki - Murchie's team member
Just a perfect balance of sweetness and mild licorice flavour. I rarely am satisfied with just one cup; I'll make a big pot and drink it all! (Posted on 2014-11-21)

Strength Ratings

Flavour Profile Guide

Tea and coffee tasting is a very individual, multi-dimensional experience: one person’s perfect cup can be too strong or weak, too brisk or watery for the next person. At Murchie’s, we believe that the best tea or coffee is the one that YOU like the best! We use the following flavour profile guides to help compare our teas and coffees within a relative scale.

Tea Strength Ratings

This rating method indicates the strength of flavour each tea has when brewed according to our brewing guide.

Light/Delicate Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Light/Delicate: Very light in colour and delicate in flavour
Medium Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Medium: Medium-light cup with slightly fuller cup
Medium-Strong Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Medium-Strong: Medium-dark cup, medium body, and full flavour without harshness
Strong Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Strong: Full body, rich cup, takes milk well
Very Strong Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Very Strong: Rich, dark cup with very full, strong flavour and briskness


Coffee Ratings

We rate the flavour properties of our coffees along two dimensions: roast and body.

Roast is simply a result of how long and how hot the beans have been roasted, which can be seen in the colour of the finished bean, and typically results in general flavour traits:

Light Roast           More acidity, brightness and a slight pucker
Medium Roast           Slightly richer flavours, some acidity, enhanced creaminess
Dark Roast           Distinctive roasted flavour, sometimes notes of toasted sugar or charcoal

Body is the term used to describe how the brewed coffee feels in your mouth:

Light Body           Easy to drink with little lingering flavour, ‘thin’ or ‘clean’ feeling on the palate
Medium Body           Heavier, creamier mouth-feel with more lingering flavour
Full Body           Rich, full-mouth feeling: hits all of the palate and lingers

Brewing Guides

Brewing Guide | Murchie's Tea & Coffee

Tea Brewing Guide

Different types of teas should be brewed according to certain times and water temperatures to bring out their best flavours. Use this guide as a starting point, and then experiment until you find the perfect brewing method for your favourite tea.

Based on approximately one level teaspoon (2.5g) of loose tea or one tea bag per 6-8 ounce (180-240ml) cup. For stronger flavour, add more tea. Brewing for longer may increase the strength of the tea, but will likely also cause bitterness.

Brew times shown in minutes.

Coffee Brewing Guide

The simplest methods for brewing coffee are drip coffee, pour over and French press. These guidelines are a starting point; modify the ratio of coffee to water, the grind, and brewing time to your taste. If your coffee is not strong enough, increase the proportion of coffee per cup of water, grind the beans finer, or allow them to brew longer – or any combination of these factors. If your coffee is too strong, simply do the opposite.

Drip coffee or pour over method: hot water is gradually poured over coffee grounds and slowly drips through
      • Fine to medium grind coffee
      • 1.5 to 2.5 tablespoons of coffee per cup of water

French press: coffee grounds are ‘steeped’ in hot water, and then a filter presses down the grounds, allowing the finished coffee to be poured off
      • Coarse grind coffee
      • 1 to 1.5 tablespoons of coffee per cup (e.g. 4-6 tbsp for a 4-cup French press)
      • Pour about 1/3 of the water over the coffee grinds; wait about 30 seconds and then pour in the rest
      • Wait 4-5 minutes, then push down the plunger to separate the grounds from finished coffee, and enjoy!
