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.

  • 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.

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!

Surprisingly tasty - just try it!

I was not convinced by this tea as I don't like liquorice, until a colleague gave me a bag to try and I was amazed at the taste! Sweet but minty and strong, beautiful. I wouldn't guess it had liquorice in it if I didn't know the name. I would recommend anyone get a sample and you will be pleasantly surprised!

Incredible liquorice and peppermint!

I've been drinking Teapigs tea for over a year now and was pleasantly surprised with a sample sachet of liquorice and peppermint. Since then I have not been able to drink anything else! It's simply incredible and satisfies a sweet tooth I did not know I had. Having come off adding sugar to every day tea, this has become the ideal and guilt free substitute.

I must also add that Becky at Teapigs has been wonderful in resolving an issue I had with a pack. A replacement plus an additional pack is brilliant customer service. The minor issue does not stop me giving this product a 5/5 rating. I'm going to try buying it loose now!

Beautiful tea

My partner bought me this tea for my birthday recently and in all honestly I didn't even want to try it as I hate liquorice! However, I tried it out of politeness and it is honestly the most beautiful tea I have ever tasted, a lovely peppermint flavour at first with a burst of sweetness afterwards. I'm completely addicted and introduced a friend to it last night who also loved it!
