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.

    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.

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!

Found this when away with work in Hong Kong of all places. Absolutely amazing taste, liquorice is subtle but really makes the drink. Now back in Thailand and will have to go hunting to see if anyone sells it here.

The Strangest Tea Ever

This tea was NOT what I expected. When brewed it smells just like an average peppermint tea, but when you taste it, it's such much different. At first, it tastes just like a mint green tea, but after there's a lovely kick of sweetness - really satisfies my sweet tooth, and it doesn't taste like liquorice, for those of you wondering! It is lovely, though.

It's almost indescribable how marvellous this brew is! It definitely satisfies any sweet cravings, unfortunately that happens all to regularly for me but I'm pleased to say TeaPigs have come to the rescue once again!
