Liquorice and mint Gansu, Northern China Sourced from:
Gansu, Northern China

Louise the tea taster says

One of our best sellers, this little combo has hit the spot with lots of you. We use the natural root of the liquorice plant (not the black sticky stuff you’re thinking of!) and have blended it with our of pure peppermint leaves to create a naturally sweet and refreshing drink that is irresistibly moreish.  Liquorice has been used in Chinese medicine for years and is known as “the great detoxifier” – sounds great!

How does it taste?

Sweet, liquorice, mint and sweet again.

Good if you're feeling


in need of a little treat, or, alternatively, in need of a tea to soothe a sore throat.


This tea contains liquorice - people with hypertension should avoid excessive consumption.

    Boiling Water
  • brew_for_3_minutes
    Brew for 3+ minutes
  • Tea temple - 1 per person. Infuse in boiling water. Brew for 3+ minutes.

Whole leaves take longer to brew, but the little wait is definitely worth it.

How we like it

Hot or cold - great over ice in summer, or hot and warming in winter.



Just cover one tea temple with boiling water and infuse for 3 minutes. Remove temple and top-up glass with iced water. Garnish with lemon and lime.

Purchased this because of the good reviews and when I tried it on its own I was not very keen but when I added sweetaner it was very nice.

My favourite tea !!

My sister was buying teapigs and saying they were amazing but I'd never heard of them and she said I could pick a flavour, so i picked this.
Just expected a generic herbal tea but this tastes soooo good! I'm not really a tea person, i have a huge sweet tooth but i don't like liquorice yet this tea is amazing!
i love how it's kind of syrupy as well, if that makes any sense!
definitely my fav tea :)

Sooo good

You have to try this tea. I have a sweet tooth and have been on a 4-week detox, but I'm allowed caffeine free tea. Anyway, I came across this team and yesterday was the 1st time I tried.

WOW, it's packed with flavour. You get the lovely mint taste and then a might punch of smooth sweetness. Really hits the spot. And don't worry if you dont like liquorice (I'm not a fan) but you can't taste it, just tastes beautifully sweet.

Definitely a must and to make it even better I did a little test! I used the same tea bag 3 times (topping it up with hot water) and it was still packed with flavour. An added bonus, not only does it taste great but you can carry on enjoying it a couple of times!

Best tea ever

This tea far exceeded my expectations. Not sure how to describe it except it's delicious. I'm not a liquorice fan but this has a lovely taste and sweet kick. Love it and will keep ordering as it is helping when I have sweet cravings on my diet!
