Licorice tea is not for everyone. Those who don't like licorice candies, won't like the tea. I love licorice so I love the tea as well, but I prefer the type with spices like cinnamon, ginger, clove and cardamon. I love the spicy sweet taste of this type of licorice tea. I don't only have it hot, sometimes I have it iced as well and it's just as good.
I don't know if this is just in my mind or not, but I feel like licorice tea helps reduce fatigue for me. Has anyone else experienced this?
