Well liquorice, for a start, which has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine, is hugely popular with the Dutch and tastes so much better with peppermint than sherbet dips. Which is why, we've blended pure liquorice root with whole peppermint leaves to create a naturally sweet and refreshing drink that is irresistibly moreish, if I say so myself.

Louise the tea taster says

how does it taste?

Sweet, liquorice, mint and sweet again.

good if you're feeling

In need of a super comforting, guilt-free, sweet treat.

How we like it

Infuse for a full 3 minutes - the longer you leave this blend the sweeter it gets.

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.

Brew Time

  • tea temple - 1 per person. Infuse in boiling water. Brew for 3+ minutes.
  • loose tea - 2 rounded teaspoonful per person. Brew for 3+ minutes.

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

“This has been my favourite tea for over a year now. I have tried many liquorice teas and this is by far the best, the taste is the most intense. I usually get two cups out of one tea bag. Was thrilled to find I could buy it online in bulk and get it cheaper!”

glad I bought the big pack

* * * * * by Morgan M • 13th May 2017

“This tea has a great combination of both liquorice and peppermint. At first you smell and taste the peppermint, but then the strong aftertaste of liquorice sets in, and it's great. really glad I bought the big pack, adding this to my faves list.”


* * * * * by ann • 3rd July 2018

“This tea is absolutely lovely. I bought it based on the reviews but wasnt really expecting to like it as much as I do. It is delicious. Please never stop selling this flavour”


* * * * * by Ruth • 6th May 2018

“Initial peppermint taste and then a sweet explosion of liquorice in your mouth!! The best herbal tea I've ever tried. Yum!”

“The best herbal tea we’ve ever tasted. We enjoy one in the evening instead of a normal tea. I’ve even swapped my glass of wine! Must be good!”


* * * * * by Angeline • 4th March 2019

“This tea is absolutely delicious, it has a lovely sweet taste as you swallow. I don't take sugar in tea but I don't find this overly/too sweet. This will definitely be a regular order for me!”

this tea got me through my pregnancy!

* * * * * by Elizabeth Berry • 18th July 2017

“Your liquorice and peppermint tea got me through my pregnancy where I suffered from morning sickness and heartburn for the full 10 months (not only was she trouble she was also 2 weeks late).

I'm a big tea/caffeine fiend and it was a shock to the system to have to abstain. I'm also a teacher and needed the peppermint to get me through my Year 9 class after PE. There's nothing like teenage boys after sport to make hiding morning sickness and pregnancy tricky.

teapigs I salute you!”

Best Tasting Tea

* * * * * by liz • 20th March 2018

“This is my favourite Teapot flavour. It's the only way to start the day. Love how sweet it tastes”


* * * * * by Mandi • 5th June 2017

“This is delicious with so much flavour ! much better than other brands. The 'temple' contain real ingredients opposed to the dust in many tea bags - I am very impressed and look forward to trying the Chamomile Flowers at bedtime ! Has brightened up a rainy day :-)”


* * * * * by Jill • 13th February 2018

“I find most herbal teas are just tasteless "brown water" and don't see the point in drinking them...but this is just divine!
So tasty, sweet and refreshing all at the same time, I find this a great pick me up when I don't want any more caffeine.”


* * * * * by Jo • 19th February 2017

“I would not go back to any other herbal tea after trying 'sweet treat'. The taste is so much stronger and sweeter than any other brand: It really satisfies my sweet cravings whilst being completely guilt free.”

Yummy Flavour

* * * * * by Nicola Cooper • 27th September 2012

“I have been drinking 'strange' teas for many years since discovering I had a caffeine allergy. I was introduced to your tea temples (Rooibos) by a friend and I love them. Recently another friend gave me a cup of your Liquorice & Peppermint - I've never liked peppermint but this combo is divine - makes your mouth sparkle, and no sweetening required. Thank you Teapigs X”

this tea rocks...

* * * * * by • 15th November 2008

“This tea totally rocks... First you get the clean, cool refreshing taste of mint, and then, starting at the tip of your tongue, a lush, rich, rounded sweet taste of liquorice. Couldn't get the grin off my face on a cold November morning, and this from a person who hates winter! A total teapigs triumph me thinks. And the longer you let it infuse, the better and more intense it gets! Also still delicious cold. Wow. I love it.”

Favourite of the tea pigs

* * * * * by Jenny Mullett • 28th July 2012

“I was a bit dubious of trying this tea, as I do like liquorice but was,nt so sure about it being in tea.
My initial sip of this tea, was followed by oohs and aahs.I was very pleasently suprised!! For me you,re hit with the taste of mint first and then you get this incredible sweetness permeating around your mouth leaving you wanting another sip.My only regret was not buying more of it!!!”

Converted me to hot drinks

* * * * * by Helun Prynne • 4th April 2019

“I’ve never been a hot drink drinker however this liquorice and peppermint tea has converted me! I must have my fix of 1 per day. It’s such a lovely flavour, unlike other bland teas this one packs a punch! Also if trying to be good I have one of these teas to replace a sweet treat and it does the job!”

De-Stress Miracle Worker!

* * * * * by Imogen Bowen • 22nd April 2015

“I bought this at a food and drink festival where I was allowed to try shots of each of the teas, this one really stood out. I love mint and I love liquorice but I never thought they would work together! I love to have a cup after a long day as it has a really warm and rich flavour to calm me down and work it's de stress magic!”

Loved this!

* * * * * by Frances • 10th April 2015

“Was not expecting to like this because I really don't like liquorice, but I was really surprised! It's smooth and minty with a sweet aftertaste. Love it for after dinner. Highly recommend this tea!”

licourice and peppermint yum!

“by far the best one yet...strong clean flavours”

All time favourite!

* * * * * by Vendela • 1st May 2015

“Cannot get enough of this tea, my absolute favourite! Which is surprising, seeing as I don't even like liquorice. Fresh but sweet at the same time. Have only met one person who did not like it and the rest are now also obsessed (I've made a majority of my friends try it).”

Liqourice and Peppermint Tea

* * * * * by C Prescott • 20th August 2015

Oh my!

* * * * * by Karly • 20th August 2015

* * * * * by Terry Guersten • 5th September 2015

Amazing tea!

* * * * * by Val Green • 15th October 2015

“Bought this on a whim this morning- thought it sounded interesting! I have had a chest cold for over a week along with a cough but within minutes of drinking this tea my chest feels so much better and my cough has calmed down- added bonus as I wasn't expecting that! Oh and it tastes amazing!!! This tea is going on my regular shopping list!!!”

i love liquorice and mint tea amazing

* * * * * by Howard • 12th October 2015

“I would recommend to try iquorice and mint I drink it every day I love the sweetness and I crave for this every day Thanks You teapigs”

the best

* * * * * by Holly Ward • 12th January 2016

“Perfect when you're craving something sweet but trying to be good.”

OMG - This made me feel 20 years younger!

* * * * * by Jon • 22nd January 2016

“I don't usually leave comments, but the flavour of this tea has driven me to it!

I'm not a fan of liquorice sweets, but I remember trying and liking liquorice root about 20 years ago when my dad used to buy bags of the whole root to chew on. So when I bought a box of 12 samples I decided to include this one on a childhood whim.

I like my mint teas strong, so I brewed this for 7 minutes, and after taking my first sip I was blown away by the sweet, sweet liquorice. It was just like chewing the roots again, but with a minty freshness cutting through (and no tough fibres getting stuck between your teeth).

I'm glad I trusted the other comments and am totally putting in a big order for this one.”

Absolutely delicious

* * * * * by Sarah Jones • 26th January 2016

“This is just the most delicious, flavoursome tea. It is sweet but refreshing, with no hint of bitterness. I don't like sweet or fruit teas as a rule, I prefer minty or herby ones. I wouldn't have thought to try this but a friend gave me some and now I'm hooked. It is so moreish. The tea bags are very strong so use a big mug or a teapot. I top up mine at least once and it still has a very good flavour.”


* * * * * by Chantil • 5th March 2015

“Ordered a pick and mix box and this tea is by far my favourite so far.

I love liquorice tea but have never had it with mint before. This really doesn't disappoint. The swwetness of the mint combined with the subtle liquorice flavour is very nice”

Loved it

* * * * * by Jake Wild • 14th March 2019

“My favourite tea not only from teapigs but overal. LOVEEEE a liquorice and peppermint teabag to start my day! 10/10 do recommend. What an amazing brand pls keep it up. Got the mug with the lil tooth to cling the teabag to it recently and it’s been having rave reviews aha xx”

liquorice and mint

“gorgeous - i don't usually go for these kind of teas but LOVE this one - have ordered 2 packs since trying it in a cafe earlier today”

Incredible liquorice and peppermint!

* * * * * by Matt • 7th April 2014

“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

* * * * * by Jenna • 28th March 2014

“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!”


* * * * * by Molly • 4th June 2014

“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!

* * * * * by Holly • 24th April 2014

“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!”

What peppermint tea should taste like!

* * * * * by Alexandra Wingrove • 13th February 2014

“I bought this purely because my order came came to just under the free delivery threshold - but oh my days it's wonderful! It's beautifully sweet, and makes a lovely treat! I can get at least 2 cups out of one tea bag, and I bet it would taste great over ice too :-)”


* * * * * by Simone Mari Kalkerup • 30th January 2014

“I've been looking for a tea with the real liquorice flavour from the roots, since I had a tiny bit left of another decent tea, but haven't been able to find one. But then I received this one as a present, and I haven't even finished it before I had to order a new batch.

Also it really worked wonders on my throat, which was really sore.”

Sooo good

* * * * * by Kathia Maillefert • 7th August 2014

“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!”


* * * * * by Ramona • 5th March 2014

“I had to order more because my daughter really enjoys this (and she is usually very picky) and so do I. Can't wait for teapigs to come to the US.”

Very Good Amazing wow

* * * * * by Finlay Holderness • 15th December 2014

“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 !!

* * * * * by Joanna • 8th October 2014

“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 :)”

Hate liquorice, not keen on peppermint, LOVE this tea!

* * * * * by Danni • 16th December 2014

“I got a free sample of this when buying other tea.I wasn't keen but thought I'd try it after the reviews and it is delicious, don't be put off if you don't like liquorice, give it a try”

Sweet tea without the calories

* * * * * by Elizabeth • 14th January 2015

“One of my favorite beauty bloggers recommended this tea and although I'm not a fan of liquish sweets, I really like this tea. It's minty fresh and soothing and the liquish really sweetens it. It's great for when you fancy something naughty but are trying to be good.”


* * * * * by Emma • 18th January 2015

“I watched essiebutton's youtube review after hearing rave reviews about this tea. Spotted it in tesco and despite the price tag telling me no I bought it anyway. SO WORTH IT. It tastes sweet, syrupy like honey running down your throat.”

Pleasantly surprised

* * * * * by Sara Friend • 15th March 2014

“Like previous reviewers, I bought a small pack to push into the free delivery band and was still a little worried that it would be tasting like liquorice. But it is wonderfully sweet and might even stop me having a sweet treat this afternoon. But I'm not making promises. Will be buying a proper sized box next time.”

Best tea ever

* * * * * by Jen • 5th August 2014

“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!”


* * * * * by Vikki • 13th March 2014

“This is the best tea I have ever tasted, hands down, a boss at my new company lent me a tea bag (teapigs Liquorice and Peppermint) this was yesterday, I am now on my third and am ordering a 50 pack on payday! I crave it now after just one cup!

I wish teapigs did a Lady Grey blend!”


* * * * * by chris • 29th July 2014

“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.”

Sweetie Treatie

* * * * * by Laura • 19th February 2014

“Lovely and sweet and curbs the sugar cravings”

The Strangest Tea Ever

* * * * * by Charlotte • 2nd July 2014

“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.”

Truly addictive

* * * * * by Tracey Liddle • 3rd February 2014

“As someone who cannot drink tea without adding sweetener this tea ideal. The natural sweetness of the liquorice is fabulous. The liquorice flavour that kicks in when you swallow is addictive. Best of all when it has sat on my desk and gone cold it still tastes great.”

Just yummy!

* * * * * by Shareen Cameron • 7th August 2012

“I've tried herbal teas in the past and been left disappointed. My experiences in the past have been of horribly bitter, flavourless hot water.

Then the Teapigs came into my life and have changed my view forever. This tea is aromatic, fresh and absolutely delicious.

I'm absolutely addicted and will continue to buy this for as long as it keeps being produced. It is an absolute treat.”

Liquorice & mint

* * * * * by Jane Phillips • 20th July 2012

“After having been pressed with other herbal teas (all scent - no flavour) the Tea Pig liquorice & mint is an absolute eye-opener! Never thought herbal teas could be THIS good. My daily treat. Rate them higher than the 5 you can actually give. Try them - they're delicious.”


* * * * * by • 1st March 2009

“So sweet, so refreshing. The blend is beautiful and it really helps when you're craving something sweet.”

Just sweet enough

* * * * * by Kayleigh Thomas • 31st August 2013

“This is my favourite of the range so far. I find that letting the water cool slightly improves the flavour - it stops the peppermint tasting bitter. I like the tea quite strong but it can often last 2 cups. I really like the way the peppermint hits your mouth but that the sweet liquorice taste comes through afterwards. It has really helped me curb my snacking during the day as I tend to get a sweet craving during the work day. Can't wait to order the 50 box next.”

The best!!!!!!!!

* * * * * by • 13th March 2009

“This tea is simply fabulous!! Its my all time favourite tea pigs tea, i absolutely love the taste, first you are hit my the peppermint, which is very refreshing, then the liquorice tastes comes through, the two flavours match beautifully, and i can drink this tea anytime!! Morning, lunch, evening, its truly a very special blend!!!

I know this is a little cheeky, but maybe if this is the best seller of the month, you could offer 3 boxes for a special price??? And do this every month for whatever is the tea of the month? Just an idea, i know i would buy into it.

Thanks again, Claire x”

A lovely little twist

* * * * * by Stephanie Clark • 14th June 2013

“I have just brewed my first cup of this delicious tea, I am still sipping away on it as I write the review. It is a wonderful twist on the usual peppermint tea, the liquorice isn't overpowering but it adds a tasty little sweet kick at the end of every sip. Can't wait to try it iced.”


* * * * * by Kirsty • 16th July 2013

“One of my favourite teapigs flavours. I just wish they sold it loose, as the teabags are a bit too expensive for me.”

Absolutely delicious

* * * * * by Hannah • 2nd July 2013

“Really wasn't sure what to expect - Teapigs has some very strange flavours! But this is so tasty, definitely a sweet treat that lurks on your tongue for a good while. I recommend leaving it a while before swallowing, then the taste stays longer. Will certainly have it again.”

Sweet Indulgence

* * * * * by Nicky • 16th December 2013

“This is such a treat! I feel guilty drinking it-that is how satisfying it is! If you like licorice . . . . you love this tea!! Always drink it hot but I'm sure it is amazing on ice!!”


* * * * * by jasmine • 1st August 2013

“Love this tea”

So yummy!!

* * * * * by rnb • 31st December 2013

“Teapigs included a sample teabag in one of my orders. Definitely wouldn't have tried it otherwise because I assumed I wouldn't like it, but so glad I did!! Really tasty and sweet!! Going to purchase lots more of these to help keep my sweet cravings at bay during my pre-wedding diet!!”

The perfect sweet!

* * * * * by Joana Fonseca • 23rd December 2013

“This got to be the best tea I've tried lately. It really does satisfies my sweet tooth: it is so tasty!”

fantastic taste- truly indulgent

* * * * * by Sharon McDowell • 4th January 2014

“This is my favourite, tried other makes in the past but then introduced to teapigs. Never looked back, taste is fantastic, true flavour and a touch of luxury. Other brands are a poor imitation. You certainly get what you pay for. If you like liquorice you will adore these temples. I will now not drink any other brand.

Thanks teapigs.

Regards. Sharon”

Heyyy!!! This is GORGEOUS!

* * * * * by • 14th January 2009

“I was a bit skeptical about trying this because I hate straight peppermint tea (it makes me feel like I have an upset stomach - think it's because i associate it with milk of magnesium!) but I gave it a go anyway out of curiousity when I ordered my old favourites. I did my sister a cup too, who is not a fan of herbal tea. It is GORGEOUS! It tastes like soft, sweet black liquorice with a refreshing, cool kick. It is delicious and should make me feel guilty, it's like a dessert. Definitelyv a new favourite! MMMMM!”

perfect if you love sweet!

* * * * * by Angela Im • 16th January 2014

“i have developed a sweet tooth. hehe and this is my favorite! i just love it! you can have this as a dessert. it's so sweet that you do not need to add any other sweetener and my 4.5 yo daughter adores it too! the sweet tea, it's called. would highly recommend this for people with a sweet tooth!! A++++”

Cleared my skin and also any tummy troubles

* * * * * by Eve Jessett • 24th August 2013

“I found this tea by accident. I gave up caffeine and found I was dairy intolerant so had to switch to herbal teas. Initially I was drinking Pukka Liquorice and Mint, but it wasn't great, and they irritated me with their spelling ;-)

I bought the Teapig range in a local supermarket and have been hooked ever since. I think I'm on order number 3 now and can't get enough of it.

My skin is definitely clearer (probably down to the extra water intake) and I've found that if I have any tummy trouble (from consuming dairy or gluten) then a quick cup of tea settles me straight down.

I won't be drinking anything else, I take this tea with me everywhere - there's always a couple of temples in my handbags, on my desk and even in the car!

I like the fact that its quite a strong flavour, its not wishy washy at all, it packs a punch and one tea temple easily does 2 cups if you're worried about the price!”

Such a must try!

* * * * * by Kt • 13th November 2013

“Love, love love this tea! It was one of my first purchases from tea pigs after I tasted a cup at wagamamas. Since then it's been a firm favourite and I'm topping up my 3rd order. I really enjoy the taste of this tea and feel like it's helped my curb snacking as it satisfied my sweet tooth. Would recommend this tea to ppl who enjoy peppermint but find normal bags a but bitter and unexciting”


* * * * * by Dan • 23rd August 2013

“Best herbal tea I have ever tasted hands down, nice strong flavour, real treat!!!! :-)”


* * * * * by Carrie • 31st October 2013

“This is fantastic!

I was unwell earlier this year and the medication I had to take made me really nauseous. I couldn't stomach normal tea so I kept looking for alternatives. This was wonderful!

I am now hooked on the stuff, it delicious hot or if forgotten about and it goes cold its lovely to, slight difference in flavour cold.

I have now got all my family hooked on the stuff!”

Uber yummy

* * * * * by Maggie Gotts • 30th July 2013

“A friend introduced me to this tea. I'm hooked.
1 Teapig in a 1 ltr flask lasts me half a day. Will be ordering more soon.”

The Best Tea from Teapigs

* * * * * by Queeg • 23rd October 2013

“It simply does not get better than this. I have to buy this is large boxes now as we get through it so quickly.

The flavours are incredible and that liquorice after-taste is something you have to try to believe.

Buy it. Buy it now and buy some more for friends, you won't be sorry.

Must say though I haven't tried it cold yet.”

best licquorice-mint tea I've found

* * * * * by Sarah • 16th July 2013

“I discovered a rival's (Lipton) licquorice-mint tea in France and had been drinking that - importing it myself when going on hols or ordering over web. Teapigs is in a different category all together. I am a convert to Teapigs and now ordering industrial quantities to feed my healthy habit. If you want something refreshing, delicious and different - try Teapigs licquorice and mint.”

The absolute best :)

* * * * * by Fionnghuala • 8th October 2013

“I love this tea.... Absolutely my favourite!”

Has replaced my addiction to coffee!

* * * * * by Sandie Bradley • 2nd July 2013

“I used to drink four or five cups of coffee a day and craved my coffee fix but since trying this tea I haven't drunk a cup of coffee in days!
This is my favourite hot drink now. Every time the kettle goes on, this is what I'm reaching for!

It is a beautiful, refreshing drink. The mint isn't quite as strong as Teapig's Pure Peppermint tea but still has that lovely clean taste...... and then the sweetness of the licorice hits you! It is like having four teaspoons of sugar added, but nicer, and much better for you! I don't know how but it has a kind of creamy, decadent taste to it too, but what I love best is the lovely sweetness you get at the end of every sip! I'm watching my weight at the moment and this is a beautiful substitute for any other hot drink that may be laden with calories as it is only one calorie a cup, and it certainly kills any sweet cravings I may have had!
I just bought my first box of fifty bags after my initial fifteen bag box, and I'm sure I'll be making plenty more orders for fifty bags of this gorgeous tea!

I'm addicted!!”

Uber yummy

* * * * * by Maggie Gotts • 14th September 2013

“I use 1 Tea temple in a 1Lt flask and leave it to brew, drinking it slowly. Tastes just as great cold as it does hot.

Just placed a second order, but went for the bulk buy option :)”


* * * * * by • 18th March 2009

“This is the first time I've tried peppermint & liquorice tea and it is absolutely refreshing!!! Would definitely buy this again and again and again. Have enjoyed it anytime of the day and night.

Thanks, Michelle”

ProductivaTEA and QualiTEA!

* * * * * by Charlotte Lea Pointon • 24th June 2012

“Alex Day sent me here. Said this tea made him productive. And god he is right! *falls into rainbows of happiness* I love tea! :D Thanks Alex! (if you are reading this you must be ordering more so, thats good I guess) DFTBA xxx (P.S. Seriously this stuff works. BUY IT!)”

Top tea

* * * * * by • 1st August 2010

“Okay if like me you work in an office where the tea flows liberally, but you end up feeling wired from all that caffeine, then this is the one for you. It has a lovely sweetness about it and one bag can last for several cups (don't tell Teapigs I told you) with very little drop off in flavour - just loop the little string round the cup handle and you are set for most of the day. Enjoy”

Best tea ever

* * * * * by Phil Morgan • 31st October 2012

“Well it is! Superb combination of sweet (but not sugary( and minty tastes. Rarely drink any other hot drink!!”

could I be mean?

* * * * * by • 24th March 2009

“when I buy tea for myself, I usually buy some extras for my impoverished student niece to put in the food parcels I send her. I bought 2 packets of your licquorice and mint and when it arrived I tried it straight away as it smelt so good. After tasting it I was very tempted to keep both packs but thought that I could not be that mean-or could I?”

I never thought...

* * * * * by Claudia • 2nd December 2012

“I would this tea so much! I got it as a sample with other teas I bought and I am delighted. I am definitely not a fan of liquorice nor mint. However, the combination is just fantastic! What a lovely tea.”


* * * * * by Anneliese • 16th November 2012

“I usually hate sweet drinks of any kind and pretty much stick to black coffee, but I absolutely adore this tea.

The mintyness is just right - not too overpowering - and then the liquorice comes through, leaving a delicate minty-sweet aftertaste...It works so well together.

It's actually pretty hard to describe and judging from the other reviews, it's not the same for everyone.

I wasn't intending on re-purchasing any teas from here so soon, but my pack's running low and I don't think I can go many days without this tea anyone!”

The Best One So Far!

* * * * * by Mathew James Lennon • 7th January 2013

“This is the best tea i've tried so far from teapigs, although I am found of the Matcha tea. This one is just so tasty though, just like sweets!”

What a pleasant surprise!

* * * * * by David Smitham • 27th December 2012

“Had this as a taster with my main order of chamomile tea and promptly flung it to the back of the cupboard thinking I'd never like such an awful sounding combination, however, curiosity got the better of me and I finally made a cup fully expecting to tip it straight down the sink, how wrong was I. This was absolutely gorgeous and I would now highly recommend to anyone whose willing to go against the natural assumption that liquorice has no place in a tea cup to just try it, you'll be pleasantly and refreshingly surprised.”

Liquid luxury

* * * * * by Keith Channing • 30th April 2013

“OK, I'm hooked. This gorgeous drink is the most luxurious, decadent and downright gorgeous drink I can remember ever tasting. It is now my lunchtime staple. Big kudos to the lovely Louise (or whoever dreamed this one up)”

Tastes nothing like liquorice! Good thing!

* * * * * by Jo Bolton • 24th January 2013

“Everyone who has tried this has had the same same reaction I did.... "but I don't like liquo....OH! WOW! It's GORGEOUS!!"

Such a sweet kick that hits the back of your throat in the most delightful way. Perfect for when you need a sweet fix without the calories! Even my 12 year old daughter loves this!”

my new drink

* * * * * by Joey • 7th May 2013

“i bought this tea and wasnt keen at all! however i have just tried it as an ice tea and it is such a refreshing tasty drink on a hot day! anyone who finds the taste too strong should try it iced! you will find it perfect :)”

Most refreshing

* * * * * by Peter Madsen • 4th May 2013

“without doubt my favorite of all my Teapig teas.
I love licorice at the best of times and this is just the most heavenly combination.”

Sweet treat

* * * * * by Deborah P • 27th May 2013

“Read an article in a magazine yesterday in which it suggested Teapigs Liquorice and Mint tea as a good guilt free sweet treat. Found some today in a local farm shop and I have to agree. Lovely kick of sweetness and then mint, liquorice and then sweet again. Don't think this pack will last long!”


* * * * * by helen taylor • 31st May 2013

“Was a liquorice and mint virgin til last night. Thank you Wagamama for the intro to this amazing tea! Just bought a box of them...a little something for the weekend :)”

So Yummy!

* * * * * by Jo • 3rd June 2013

“I love this tea, It's just arrived and I tried it straight away. It's so nice the liquorice is a kind of sweet aftertaste.”

The Best Tea Ever!!!

* * * * * by Louise Prophet • 17th October 2012

“I love the taste of this fabulous tea.
When we run out at home how the mood tone changes!
So to make super sure we don't run out I order 3 x 50 bags each time just to keep us going.
Reluctantly I have also given a tea temple to a work colleague (now TP converted) and even a stranger on a train!!!
Highly recommended A*****”

Liquorice & Peppermint

* * * * * by Phil Barber • 28th April 2013

“I have tried various other company products that offer a similar combination of flavours but NONE come even close to the intensity that this Tea Pig products does. It's absolutely brilliant :-)”


* * * * * by Zoe Shears • 28th February 2013

“It is a shame I can not afford to buy any of this tea as its my fav. I really like the mix of flavours in this tea its super tasty.”


* * * * * by Malene Dandanel • 23rd April 2013

“this tea is just perfect.... simple and easy”


* * * * * by Sarah Owston • 8th January 2013

“Received a selection of teas for Xmas and this one I was pleasantly suprised with the flavour. I thought the liquorice would be to overpowering, but no, a good balance of flavour hitting separate parts of the taste buds, superb. I find this satisfies the palate when looking for something to nibble on, so helping the detox plan, a savoury hit with a sweetness from the peppermint, Delicious!!”


* * * * * by Lynsey Dowding • 19th April 2013

“This tea is amazing. I'm not a flavoured tea drinker and wasn't expecting to like this but I'm addicted to the taste!”

liqurice and mint

* * * * * by linda • 29th December 2012


My all time fave comfort tea

* * * * * by trishbashton • 18th April 2013

“I can't praise this tea enough. Just taking a sip makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Warming with a delicious aftertaste. Just the thing when you are feeling a bit low or down. A tea with a hug and so delicious!”


* * * * * by Terence Beckett • 7th December 2012

“I have a sweet tooth and wanted a drink which did not need me to add any sugar... OMG I am addicted from the first cup.
This is a grown up drink which punches loads of flavour... I cannot reccomend it enough”


* * * * * by Alison Da Silva • 12th April 2013

“I love this tea and always have a box in my desk. Recently (I couldn't wait for my teapigs tea to be delivered) I bought a box of inferior liquorice & mint tea from a rival. It was awful. I am back to teapigs now and this experience has only served to highlight how incredible teapigs tea is.

I love the sweet liquorice flavour of this - it's a great substitute for a sweet snack in the afternoon!”

My favourite night-time drink

* * * * * by Barbara Day • 25th November 2012

“I just love this tea and drink it every evening to relax and unwind. I wish it came as loose tea though so I could vary the strength of the tea.”

liquorice and mint

* * * * * by Neil Clarke • 18th March 2013

“Without a doubt the nicest drink of any kind I have ever tasted! I've just placed a review for the Mao Feng and I didn't like the taste of that at all.... but this tea is just delicious!”

My No.1 Tea

* * * * * by Hanya Latif • 5th November 2012

“This is ridiculously delicious. The thing I like best is the way I can sip and taste peppermint like never before, then get a delightful explosion of fresh liquorice-esqu flavour. Such an exciting sensation. Love it.

I would recommend highly and that you ignore the words peppermint and liquorice if you think those words put you off.”

Quite simply the best herbal tea ever

* * * * * by Joshua Silver • 8th March 2013

“My wife bought these as something to try. I generally like liquorice. Peppermint tea is OK. But this combination makes the perfect herbal tea. The liquorice adds sweetness as if this was peppermint tea with sugar, but there are calories or aftertaste of artificial sweetners. The other thing is that this is genuinely nice both hot and cold. Just brilliant.”

Curious Combo but it works!

* * * * * by • 20th March 2009

“Strangely sweet, mysteriously minty and devilishly delicious. I have to admit I was dubious about this one, but how wrong could I have been. This tea makes for a delicious tipple and is a particular after lunch favourite of mine. So good I wish I'd thought of it myself!”

Liquorice and mint

* * * * * by Guy Rennison • 7th March 2013

“When I tasted how sweet this was I thought it must contain sugar! This is why I came to this site to check and was astounded that there is no sugar just liquorice root and mint! It tastes really good.”


* * * * * by Kelsey • 21st October 2012

“I love my cup of tea (or coffee, I'm a sucker for both) in the morning. I usually stick to a plain old brew but this tea is amazing and has totally taken over from my normal tea! First off, I don't need any milk or sugar. That is an amazing feat because I'm renowned for how much sugar I put in my drinks. Secondly, I'm not even a fan of liquorice, or peppermint for that matter, but I will happily drink this. Its taste and the experience of drinking this is intoxicating. It's like being in my favourite book, I just want to stay in that warm cozy place.”

Swearingly Good Tea

* * * * * by Emma Hall • 14th May 2012

“Have recently been exploring different types of tea and stumbled across this little beauty in a small tea shop. I let out a little expletive the first time I tried it, it was that good!

My boyfriend bought me a bag and I fear I may now have to marry him for the joy it has given me! Or marry Tea Pigs for bringing this into my life! :P

Thanks so much for a cuppa worth so much more than your basic breakfast tea.”

So very good

* * * * * by Emily Flaherty • 24th June 2012

“I tried this tea recently and its so very nice. Really good taste nice and minty while sweet at the same time. Everyone should try it”


* * * * * by Katie • 9th June 2012

“I was offered this tea at a friend house about a week ago, I have never had any teapigs before but had seen them in the shops and was curious to try them. That afternoon I went out and bought my own box which lasted about three days, I have just received my first order, I went big and ordered 3 boxes of 50. The tea is the best I have tasted, so smooth and sweet, definitely worth the extra pennies.”


* * * * * by Beckie • 30th May 2012

“I discovered these at a local cafe and I had to get myself some - they are utterly delicious.... I don't even particularly like liquorice...these are perfect for satisfying a sweet tooth. 10 out of 5....”

Sweet and refreshing.

* * * * * by • 23rd August 2009

“I was recommended this tea by my sister who is quite literally, addicted to it! I love Licorice and I love mint so I thought I would give it a whirl (whilst putting in me teapigs bulk order!)
Well I was not dissapointed! I was surprised at how sweet it was and how well it went with the very subtle mint undertones.
A really lovely cuppa and something to drink if you have the craving for something sweet but don`t want the calories!
The only very minor thing I would point out is that the mint is just a tad too subtle and could be done with being `cranked up a notch` to even out the taste. Other than that I really liked it!”


* * * * * by Ruth • 20th June 2012

“This tea is like arfhapwrhgarpoh! There is no word to describe how amazing it is.

When you drink it, at first you get quite a subtle sweet taste, not sugary, just naturally sweet. Then, whilst its in your mouth its tastes all minty and nice then when you have swallowed your mouth explodes with a cool kind of tingly feeling!

Truly amazing.

I bought one of the tester boxes of each flavour so I'll review them as i drink them :)

I hope i manage to help someone”

simply lovely

* * * * * by Nikki • 29th June 2012

“My Daughter Ebony bought me a pack of the mint and liqurice teapigs today and they are really lovely...what a lovely gift and lovely surprise..just embarking on a real health kick too so they are perfect for a sweet tooth...thank you Ebs and thank you Teapigs! x”

Minty-sweet :)

* * * * * by Penny Bell • 20th January 2014

“I was pleasantly surprised by this tea! I always drink peppermint tea and bought a 2-pack of this one to see if I liked it. And I did! It was really minty but also surprisingly sweet. If you've got a sweet tooth, this should appeal to you!”

Naturally sweet

* * * * * by Ashley Holyoak • 20th August 2012

“This is my favorite tea - EVER!!

I love the sweet taste of this tea, which could easily be over powering from the rich liquorice if it wasn't for the perfect cooling of the mint. I find it a smashing brew - warming in the winter and refreshing in the summer (when we get one!!)

Highly recommended if you want something sweet with some body to it, and are wanting something different to the usual fruity flavours.

Thanks Teapigs I love you...I mean really love you!!”


* * * * * by Tiajna • 8th May 2012

“It was just so amazing. I have alll the time now when im about to revise or go to bed and its such an amazing cool down LOVE IT SOOO much defo buy it”


* * * * * by Miranda • 27th August 2012

“Hi all,
This tea is a godsend, I do not know where I would be without it, it's probably the nicest drink I have ever had the delight of tasting, it's scrumptiousdiddlyumptious.
Bare with...
It's what I like to call marvy!!
Thank you sooooo much!!!!!! Such fun. My friend Stevie asked me "what have you done today to make you feel proud?" and I replied "i bought liquorice and mint teapigs".”


* * * * * by Amanda Wilkinson • 27th August 2012

“I've tried so many herbal teas and find that they all smell lovely and taste of warm sawdust. This is just incredible stuff - the way the sweetness of the licquorice spreads through your mouth is just lovely - it smells wonderful and tastes even better. I really can't recommend it highly enough.”


* * * * * by Sarah Meharg • 11th September 2012

“Now I'm not a fan of tea. I would like to like tea and am treated like an outcast as I dont get a hot drinks round in work. Ive always like the smell of herbal teas but then when Ive tasted them its felt liek dishwater. Then on holiday in morrocco I discovered mint tea. I could tolerate this (Mainly due to the collosal amount of sugar its served with. I tried mint teas in the Uk and teapigs was the collest I found to the yummy freshness of morrocon mint.. but then by chance stumbled on this beauty. No longer do i need to feel guilty as the slight sweet edge means I don't need to add sugar and the mint is refreshing. Ive had it hot and iced and both are superb. Thank you teapigs!”


* * * * * by nathalieclerc • 26th September 2012

“... I am absolutely addicted to this liquorice and mint tea. The minty smell draws you in, you take a sip and this gorgeous warmth floods your mouth and throat. One of the most amazing tea experiences in my opinion.

I've just ordered the box of 50 tea bags. It's THAT good.”

Liquorish & mint tea

* * * * * by • 15th June 2010

“I've tried many, many alternatives to my 'builders brew' and always been disappointed. However, this tea is a revelation! Delicious, refreshing & sweet - try it!”

Definately Morish

* * * * * by Joan Power • 20th May 2012

“I have a friend who gave me some of the peppermint temples and I loved them so came on here to order them. ended up ordering these as well as I love liquorice.... think I am now addicted to it... just wonderful and so satisfies my sweet tooth.”


* * * * * by Sue Uttridge • 18th August 2012

“This tea for me is the ultimate. Since trying it over a year ago I now drink nothing but it. It is so delicious and comforting I would never be without in my cupboard.”

Licorice and peppermint

* * * * * by Martine • 6th June 2013

“My son ordered this tea as I don't do herbal tea....however after trying it, I'm hooked, really delicious and highly recommended”

What a tease!

* * * * * by Abigail Hoy • 16th August 2012

“In my last order from Teapigs I had a sample tea temple of this.

I'm a big lover of liquorice and it didn't actually click for me that this would actually refer to liquorice root, call me slow but I was think about classic candy shop liquorice and mint imperials, I thought this was going to be a vile concotion.

I don't think I could have been more wrong if I'd tried, usually I'm one to heap my tea full of sugar and honey but this doesn't need any of that tat. The mint is smooth and fine like it's fresh picked out of the garden and it blends perfectly into the liquorice that gives it an amazing sweet burst at the end. Absolutely delicious, they're now definitely on my wishlist, Teapigs you bunch of teases!”

The best

* * * * * by doog • 2nd July 2012

“this tea is the best I am addicted, brilliant when dieting and you need something sweet :-)”

Simply the best

* * * * * by • 9th January 2009

“I am TOTally hooked on this tea. It is the Rolls Royce of licorice and peppermint tea all in one bag! The freshing hit of peppermint to start with, followed by the deliciously sweet aftertaste of licorice is a treat everytime! This is the herbal tea of all teas. Thank you teapigs!”

Liqourice and Peppermint rocks!!

* * * * * by • 26th July 2010

“Unlike most "alternative" teas, this one delivers and delivers again. The flavour is intense without being overpowering and sweet without tasting in any way artificial. I'm completely addicted and am converting all of my friends and family too!!”


* * * * * by Miriam Duncan • 29th July 2012

“I have such a sweet tooth, but this tea totally satisfies it. It's not often you find a herbal brew that's bursting with flavour like these lovelies are. Delish!”

Habit, guilty pleasure, addiction?

* * * * * by AuntyNitty • 24th June 2012

“A cup of this between meals, on a clean palate is an absolute joy.
Licorice and mint tea is my new guilty pleasure. A habit I am happy to take up. It has replaced my take-out coffee (yes really) and I am please to be forming an addiction.

Based on my three cups a day at work habit, I have a half-year stash already put away, just in case. I am that serious about it.”

This tea is AMAZING!

* * * * * by • 14th August 2009

“I'm not usually a big fan of herbal teas, but this tea has such an amazing flavour. It's a delicious treat that somehow finds the perfect balance between "minty refreshing" and "sweet like candy" (but sweet in a *good* way). I can happily substitute drinking this for eating a more calorific dessert. I've been spoiled - I can never return to 'blah' herbal tea again!”


* * * * * by Zlata • 20th June 2012

“I am a fan of good Scandinavian liquorice and I was very excited to see this tea in a store.
Interestingly, the tea tasted a little bit sweet- I guess it is due to the liquorice root. Overall, It is very refreshing and slightly addictive.
I will definitely purchase this tea again- it is a nice treat, but it is rather pricey for a student.”


* * * * * by Sofia • 8th February 2016

“Fantastic sweet blend! Did not except it to taste this good. Positively surprised and excited to explore other teapigs' flavours!”

The best tea EVER!

* * * * * by Anne-marie Evans • 12th June 2012

“OMG, this tea is absolutely amazing! First tried it in a local tea shop & have been completely hooked since. It just has the most incredible taste. Thanks for enlightening me, Teapigs :)”


* * * * * by Catriona McCallum • 18th July 2012

“Just fabulous, I find a lot of herbal teas have a bitter taste, this is smooth and sweet and so so good.”

Salivating at the thought of another cuppa!

* * * * * by Gus Murdoch • 8th June 2012

“Scent: sweet & clearly mint..

Taste palette: Initially light & refreshingly Mint with sweet subtle tones, but here is the twist, upon swallowing the roof of ones mouth is enveloped in a liquorice "layer" which stays present but so flavoursomely addictive urges me on to take another sip & repeat the whole process over!

Heaven savoured!

No sugar required (liquorice is naturally very sweet).

If you like liquorice this is for you, ..if a hater, move on there's nothing here for you!”

wonderful 'after' taste

* * * * * by Annette Hargreaves • 16th July 2012

“I'm addicted to this tea!!
Not only is it caffine free - (which I always drink) but it also has a minty flavour then a wonderful liquorice root 'after taste'
As a child I used to love chewing (for many hours) the liquorice root so this brought back wonderful childhood memories.
Thanks you for this experience Teapigs!!”


* * * * * by sophie awdry • 22nd May 2012

“I am an avid herbal tea drinker and this is truly the best tea I have EVER had!!! It makes me so happy every time I drink it.”

Love it!

* * * * * by Sharon Naylor • 6th July 2012

“I just love this tea! Fabulous taste and really satisfying to drink. Addicted now, will be stocking up regularly.”

Best tea ever!

* * * * * by Amy Archer • 14th May 2012

“Of all the tea pigs and all the minty teas I have had this is by far the best one I have tasted. In fact I'm just off to brew a cup of it now.... :)”

Love in a cup

* * * * * by Mike Miller • 3rd July 2012

“I LOVE this tea.
I was introduced to it by a sweet worldly American girl who cared for me while I nursed a sore head from the night before.
I have since introduced anyone I can.
I don't want to ruin the surprise, because it definitely is one, so just try!”

in love with this tea

* * * * * by Paula Kreuger • 9th May 2012

“My absolute favorite, I drink it everyday and can´t get tired of it. It leaves a sweet taste long after I´ve drunk it... love it!”

I'm addicted... and I love it!!

* * * * * by • 29th November 2009

“Tried a sample of this lovely warming tea at the Good Food Show and was hooked... bought some to take home and my partner (who really doesn't like liquorice) tried it and is hooked too. He can't believe how sweet it is and how unlike processed liquorice it is. This really is my fave tea!”


* * * * * by • 10th June 2010

“I have just tasted your liquorice and peppermint tea and it is absolutely delicious can not get enough of it”

Licorice heaven!

* * * * * by Rachael Williams • 11th April 2012

“I'm off the 'builders' (caffeine)and have been drinking peppermint tea and getting a little bored. Then discovered this in a tea shop in Suffolk. . . I didn't even know you could get licorice tea! Absolutely gorgeous... mmmmmmmmmmm!”

Oh Tea, my piggy, you're great!

* * * * * by Ilze Amanda • 11th April 2012

“My mom just returned from UK and she bought a pack of Liquorice and mint, normaly i wouln't like liquorice but this is absolutely great, sweet and I'm actually jealous of her colleagues because she bought one and only pack for them and now I came and saw a new tea and had a first drank and IT IS A GREAT, GREAT TEA! You have to try it! :)
Right now drinking the swcong cup and really really want to try other flavours! <3 (:”

Ditto to the above!!!

* * * * * by Rita Coe • 15th April 2012

“I was introduced to this tea by a friend. I wasn't looking forward to it and expectation wasn't high. I absolutely love it!!! I love liquorice and peppermint and this tea is just yummie. One bag will make two good cups. Got to be tried.”

TPig anyone?

* * * * * by Val Clayton • 26th April 2012

“Best tea ever, anytime. I have avoided tea as it always seems like a waste of money. Why spoil the water? was my attitude. Not anymore. I am a fully addicted P&L Tpig drinker and proud of it!”


* * * * * by Chris Walker • 10th April 2012

“IMO this is the best herbal drink I've had for yonks - so refreshing. Found it by accident a local cafe when trying to find something to settle tum during chemo treatment. Intend to try other flavours but really rate this one.”

Absolutely Teatastic!

* * * * * by Linda Munday • 26th December 2011

“I have stopped drinking coffee so I can indulge in this tea morning, noon and night. Wow its gooooooood!”

I have converted my family to herbal teas with this one!

* * * * * by Gearoid Keane • 28th February 2012

“As an Irish person, from an Irish family, tea has always been a huge part of life. My family generally only drink breakfast and black teas. In the last few years I have fallen in love with all the different types of teas, and I must say this is almost definitely my favourite. The rest of my family have tasted it and love it too!! I think I will probably need to be ordering more soon, as 50 tea temples won't last long in this house!”

Another awesome

* * * * * by Mike Mynn • 17th February 2012

“Absolutely the best tea I have tasted from anywhere. Very refreshing at anytime of the day or night.”

Mmmm Delicious sweet hit!

* * * * * by Felicity • 14th February 2012

“Mmm Liqourice and Peppermint Teapigs are my indulgent treat. They are lovely, tasty, warm and yummy. They are a treat for me due to the cost, but my hint: You can normally get two cups out of one teabag - just the second is a little bit weaker ;o)”

Perfect for me!

* * * * * by Martin Dahlström • 27th February 2012

“As a person with a sweet-tooth trying to loose some weight this tea is perfect for me. Instead of a Coke in the afternoon I just drink a cup of this wonderful tea. It wakes me up and stills my need for sugar. Great! Martin from Sweden.”

just brilliant

* * * * * by Margaret Wiliams • 24th February 2012

“i have just ordered top up supplies plus some small boxes for gifting - this tea is just amazingly good,absolutely marvellous,superbly delicious,wonderfully tasty,fabulously refreshing......Icould go on and on..”

“Liquorice and peppermint is the best herbal tea I have ever tasted!!”

Absolutely amazing!

* * * * * by Britt Karin Børnes • 10th October 2012

“This is the best tea I have ever tasted!
Bought it by coincidence on a trip to London and been hooked ever since. It's incredible rich in taste, and doesn't smell good and taste bitter and bad like other teas. You need no sugar or sweetener at all, I actually think that would ruin the tea. Especially good when you want something sweet after dinner.
Unfortunately nobody sell it in Norway where I live so I hope they never stop selling it online. Try it, you will love it!”

Better than alcohol

* * * * * by graciela • 11th March 2012

“I've never tasted any tea as good as this, not even the peppermint leaves in my garden which I've raved about for years. I'm as happy sitting down with a pot of this as I am with a glass of wine. Put simply, its excellent!”


* * * * * by Tracey • 30th March 2012

“I adore this tea, its refreshing and full bodied and leaves a lovely creamy taste in your mouth. Almost like having a pudding without the guilt!

Please can we have this loose? Then I can buy more!”


* * * * * by Emma Baker • 7th April 2012

“I have just received my first box in the post and cannot believe how wonderful this tea is. The taste is like nothing I have ever had before, sort of fresh then sweet.

If you are not sure whether to try this or not then do, it's amazing!”

Love at first sip

“I have found liquid need for sugar, a double full bodied whammy on the taste buds - refreshing mint and then the sucker punch - liquorice. A genius combination and you'd have to fight me to get my box of L&M teapigs off me....”

Scrumptiousness in a cup

* * * * * by Sarah Liveing • 14th November 2011

“I first had this tea whilst out on a walk in Black Park, Iver. I loved it so much that when I had an op recently the friend I had been walking with went to get me some. I've just had my last bag so what's a girl to do but order some more. Love it, love it, love it. btw, the Swedes are really big on liquorice too!”

I've been looking for this tea for ages...

* * * * * by • 13th May 2010

“... and I finally found it. Liquorice and mint is such a great combination, I can't live without it anymore. Every morning I make a cup of this tea, and I really love it. It's very refreshing and tasty, first a hint of mint and then the full round and warm liquorice flavour. Thanks for creating this tea, teapigs! Can you create it as loose tea too?”


* * * * * by • 14th April 2011

“Have had a 2 temple trial pack of these in the cupboard for a while now, just hadn't got round to trying them!
I have a horrible barking cough at the moment, which is tiring me out and making my throat/chest really sore and burning.
I read online earlier that Liquorice and Peppermint are both great for coughs, so i thought perfect time to try the tea then!
Oh my it is so delicious, sweet, refreshing and very soothing :o) A winner!
It's looking like teapigs can do no wrong!”

Liqourice and Mint

* * * * * by • 8th February 2011

“I've been a herbal tea fan for many years...but I cannot stress enough how any previous brands I've used do not compare to tea pigs.

I love all the teapigs flavours I have tried but my current beau is liquorice and mint. It satisfies my post- christmas, sugar cravings in an instant, with just enough sweetness from the liquorice combined with the digestion soothing peppermint. Amazing!”

The best Liquorice tea ever

* * * * * by • 21st June 2011

“I have enjoyed liquorice tea and mint tea for some time now but this combined tea from Teapigs is the absolute best. I love it
I drink it from the glass cup, also from Teapigs, not only is it a pleasure to drink but also great to look at too, If you like tea and have a sweet tooth - Try it.”

Good Tea

“This is a good punchy tea with plenty of flavour. Brilliant for a sweet treat in the afternoon!”

I Love it!!!

“I absoutley love the Liquorice and Peppermint tea pigs, I must say I drink 4 cups a day and just wanted to know how many cups can I drink a day as I have heard Liquorice can cause high blood pressure!

Your fan forever

“Peppermint & liquorice tea - my favourite tea of the moment.
This is definately one to try. Have got quite addicted to these lovely teabags. Luckily the latest batch have just arrived - off to put the kettle on.”


* * * * * by Jennifer Kemp • 17th January 2012

“This is probably the best tea I have ever tasted! And this is the first tea I have tried by Teapigs.

The aftertaste is especially wonderful and the smell is gorgeous!

If you haven't tried this one already, YOU HAVE TO NOW!”

Love it!

“Once again a fantastic tea, as I have always loved liquorice this is perfect for me, it's amazing when you first taste it, the mint and them the wonderful sweetness that comes through, perfect.”

“I love licorice, and the addition of mint brings it alive. Well done.”

Pure luxury

* * * * * by David Elks • 26th January 2012

“I first got into drinking this flavour of tea a couple of years ago, and found that the teapigs' version was head and shoulders above any other bagged varieties on the market.”


* * * * * by Matt • 31st January 2012

“This is the best liquorice tea I've tasted. Was given it for Christmas and am now addicted. Well done tea pigs”

Love this and so good for the stomach!

“Love this tea, nice refreshing mint with a soft sweet hit on the tongue at the end!”


* * * * * by Vicki • 6th January 2012

“I love Liquorice and mint tea but have only ever had one other brand. It is a very difficult brand/ flavour to get hold of so I was so pleased when I found this in my local shop!
I'm a convert!”

First Teapigs Experience

* * * * * by Emily McGuigan • 19th October 2011

“I bought this tea as a sample as I wanted to try it before I bought a big pack. I was really surprised at how well the peppermint & liquorice went together.
I found that when I was drinking it, I could instantly taste the mint and then once you swallowed, the liquorice would burst in the back of your throat. It was a weird sensation at first but I LOVE this tea and will definitely be buying some more and recommending everyone I know to buy it too :)”


* * * * * by Angela • 6th January 2012

“First tasted this at a local beauty salon. My husband then got me some for Xmas (at my request). I love liquorise and combined with mint this is a wonderful, smooth drink.”

Delightfully delicious!

* * * * * by Tania J • 18th October 2011

“I absolutely LOVE this tea! I have had it a few times in different places and each time it is always such a lovely surprise at just how good it is. That lovely, warm sweetness from the liquorice is just delightful. SUPERB!”


* * * * * by Lindsay Chapman • 4th January 2012

“Having been introduced to this tea by a colleague, I thought it would be just the thing for my liquorice obsessed mum. So I took a pack as a treat at Christmas, only for my dad to completely hijack it. He's trying to be dairy-free at the moment and the unexpected creamy yumminess of L&M may now be a permanent, first choice not a substitute. Congratulations Teapigs, two more fans!”

We have a winner!!!

* * * * * by Sam Eggleton • 9th February 2012

“I have been desperate to taste this tea so ordered it in a mix and match box. I kept hoping for a sample with other orders but I kept getting moa feng..well the wait was worth it what an utterly amazing sugar is needed which is fab,when you first drink it you get a subtle mint taste but as it goes down your throat it s like a gentle liquid liquorice taste..two of my most favourite flavours married beautifully in a warming gorgeous drink. Excellent work tea pigs you are amazing”

Best tea ever...FACT! :)

* * * * * by Georgina • 30th April 2012

“This is THE best tea I have ever had. I drink a lot of hot water and herbal teas (and I also love Yerba Mate), so I have tried many varieties. Don't know where I would be without it! :)”

* * * * * by • 5th September 2010

“I love loved loved this tea!! tried it in local coffee shop and totally hooked!! will never go back to my supermarket peppermint and it's lovely and sweet!! perfect for my work as I spen 10hour in front of computer and fed up with all the caffeine!!”

It's like a taste explosion in my mouth!!! :)

* * * * * by • 2nd April 2011

“This is my most favourite tea EVER!!!! Everything about this tea i love. It has the right amount of minty which is followed by a surge of sweet liquorice which is devine.
It helps settle my tummy after eating and also I find if i drink enough of it the taste lingers, giving me a sweet/fresh taste in my mouth for most of the day. :) Love it!!”

sooooo lovely !!!

* * * * * by • 24th June 2011

“This tea is just perfect to drink anytime of the day, as it is so light not heavy on the tummy, sweet in a nice way, its just perfect , first cup in the morning last one in bed... i'm hooked love it!”

Liquorice and Mint Tea

* * * * * by Angela • 27th October 2011

“Just love this Tea and found the Liquorice has beneficial results!
Sweet and very very tasty”


* * * * * by • 23rd October 2010

“I found tea pigs a year ago when looking for a gift for my 'real tea' obsessed Mum, back for more I decided to buy myself a little treat as I used to drink liquorice and mint tea years ago, this is without doubt the nicest liquorice and mint tea I've ever had! No more powdery after taste, no more wishy washy flavours, just honest, clean, fresh and deliciously intense flavour in a mug.... I love it ...thank you Teapigs you have another convert.”

Sweet treat.

* * * * * by • 10th October 2010

“This tastes too lovely to be healthy! Both refreshing and very sweet, it's great after a big meal to help settle my tummy and also nice as an afternoon pick me up when I am usually craving something sweet.”


* * * * * by • 2nd November 2010

“Bought this on holiday and it became a family favourite. Have just ordered a large pack.”

a great alternative

* * * * * by • 29th October 2010

“I absolutely love this tea - the liquorice really sets it apart. I love the cosy feeling it brings and the way the flavour is so intense but I've made a huge mistake by introducing my sons girlfriend to it. think its time for a padlock on the cupboard door!”

Just tried a liquorice and spearmint tea - lovely stuff!

* * * * * by • 6th November 2010

“Noticed them in Waitrose, quite expensive but I treated myself.

I have to say that this was the tastiest herbal tea I've ever had - naturally sweet and a lovely flavour combination. I must try out all the others now!”

liquorice & peppermint

“This tea should come with a health warning it is so addictive! Nothing can beat coming home after a hard days work and sitting down with a cup of this tea. This tea is my definitive stress buster.”

heavenly liqourice and mint

* * * * * by • 15th December 2010

“I just love the liquorice and mint herbal drink - I don't drink tea and don't like to drink any coffee at work so when I found this in a little cafe in Gainsborough I just had to try it. It's actually quite nice cold too - how many times have you made a drink and got called away to something?
I keep telling my friends about your products- now I'm going to try the lemon and ginger and buy a bigger box of the liqourice and mint.”

Surprisingly delicious!

* * * * - by Bernadette Gillespie • 12th February 2012

“I was actually pleasantly surprised by how flavourable this tea is! It's my first tea pig purchase and now wish I had bought more flavours. Delicious with a nice aftertaste, a nice treat as it is sweet. Love it :)”

Unique and Rich in Flavor

* * * * - by • 22nd January 2011

“An amazing fragrance. A vibrant flavor. It's too sweet for me to consider it a favorite, but recommend it to those who don't mind their herbal teas sweetened by anis. (This one is sweetened by liquorice root.)”

Mmmm-so tasty!

* * * * - by June Whittaker • 2nd May 2012

“All my friends in Ghana love this one, so need to stock up before I go back there. So refreshing for the hot days but also warming for the colder days and very soothing if you have a sore throat. Can be drunk hot or cold. If you like liquorice, you'll love this tea.”

Very Sweet

* * * * - by Ines • 9th April 2012

“Great tea to drink throught the whole day since it is caffeine free. 1 teabag per cup is a little too much in my opinion as this tea is really sweet. I use two tea temples for 1 Litre of water and already have to dilute it a bit. I will try to drink it cold, perhaps the sweetness won't be so strong. Overall very good.”


* * * * - by Lindsay Cassey • 10th June 2013

“Hate herbal teas, but, needed alternative to caffeine. This was recommended to me, and I am happy to honestly say I was very suspicious. 1) I don't like liquorice 2) as mentioned I hate herbal tea.
This is different, it's comforting and has a lovely minty sweet after taste. Thank goodness someone can make flavoured tea that actually tastes nice and not like warm pond water!! Thanks Teapigs!”

Very sweet

* * * * - by Kirsten Haylings • 15th October 2012

“Lovely tea but too sweet for me.”


* * * * - by Jessica • 30th January 2015

“After hearing rave reviews, I decided to try the tea for myself so I ordered it off of Amazon as I live in Canada. I really enjoy the minty flavour and although the licorice is not what I expected because it is very subtle, there's a slight second of bitterness before the sweetness hits. I'm not a fan of that but I really do enjoy the tea.”

hate liquorice but love this

* * * * - by Becki Muirhead • 26th January 2014

“Bought a pick +mix box and chose 2x of them for change.
I love peppermint tea but have got quite bored of it so I had one the liquorice + mint and love it !!! I never like liquorice or aniseed flavours as they bring up memories I like to forget so when try it I was amazed by the flavour which was brilliant it was refreshing with sweet hit.”

Pleasantly surprised

* * * * - by Tina • 4th April 2016

“Fed up of drinking ordinary black tea so bought this to try and really enjoyed. Only downside is that it's a bit too sweet for me but will steep my next cup for shorter time. Will definitely try other flavours :)”

* * * * - by • 29th March 2009

“I quite like this combination, although in contrast to some of the other reviewers I think it actually tastes best after a really long brewing time - maybe I'm just strange :)”

Too sweet for me!

* * * - - by Lauren Williams • 9th September 2013

“Really thought I was going to like this- until the super sweet after taste hit me! Shame as I know it's a lot of people's favourite but I just can't get over the sweetness, I had to come on here and check there wasn't any sugar in there! It's a little better once it's cooled down. Impressive strength of flavour though.”

Perfect for sweet tooth cravings

* * * - - by Miriam Nicholson • 21st June 2013

“Brand: Teapigs

Name: Liquorice and Peppermint

Type: Herbal “Sweet Treat”

Packaging: “Tea Temple” Pyramid silk teabag

Taste: I love peppermint tea and this has a weak taste when you take a sip, with the mint coming through as soon as you swallow, not overpowering but enough to leave a cool, refreshed feeling and taste in your mouth (it’s a dual purpose breath fresher!) followed through with the extra sweet warming liquorice taste at the back of the mouth. The liquorice is not overpowering (I don't like most black liquorice) but gives that warm aniseed-y taste that is a very elegant, adult sweetness compared to other hot sweet drinks like "milo".

Rating: 3 Stars

Value: NZ$2.40 for 2 sample bags - $1.20 each. For a 15 teabag box it is NZ$0.60 per teabag and for a 50 teabag box its NZ$0.46 (approx. cost based on exchange rates, does not factor in shipping cost)

I personally value tea highly, but Teapigs is expensive if you live in NZ due to the shipping cost – however, I try every peppermint tea I come across and none even comes close to the SPARKLE that is Teapigs peppermint tea so I am, and always will be a devotee! I will endeavour to review teas from all price ranges and compare the value for money of them. For me, tea is my indulgence, my luxury and relaxation time –for me, moments of happiness are priceless.

Available: Teapigs Website:

Comments: This is the second time I have tried this tea, having purchased the 2 tea bag sampler from Teapigs. One bag is good for 2-3 cups of tea. Which is reasonably good value for a sample. I love samples – it means I don’t end up with heaps of tins of tea that I may not like, I get to try something new and it’s like Christmas – more flavours to expand my palate and knowledge.

I didn’t like this at first. So much so that it has taken me nearly a year to try the second one again! It was this article that prompted me to do so - it is worth the read (I have over 40 samples of Pratty’s tea coming in the post – will update you with reviews soon!). Anything that can claim to be a stress reducer, anti-inflammatory, weight loss and a digestive aid is something I have to try as I suffer from IBS and anxiety. It is very sweet – and definitely satisfying for someone who used to eat chocolate daily! It did put me in a happy mood (but I was having a good day already) and I tried the last cup iced as Teapigs suggests on their website – it was just as delicious and the peppermint was brought out and was more refreshing and cooling with the temperature change.

I would recommend this is you have a sweet tooth, as for being a digestive aid, I would have to use it more frequently than once to gauge its effectiveness. Teapigs peppermint tea is my “cure all, magical, can’t live without it” tea. I carry this everywhere – actually, it’s in my handbag. It soothes the bowls, digestive system, calms painful cramping and red splotchy inflammation of the skin which is a result of IBS and Stress. I will review this but it is SPECTACULAR.

How: I am currently not overly “scientific” with my approach to brewing tea (similar to “Grandpa Style” - I usually enjoy a cup of tea as a pick me up during the day or to reduce my cravings to satisfy my sweet tooth! I usually, and in this review, put the tea bag in the cup, put in 1/5 cold water, pour over boiling water and then refill with hot water several times until I have had 2-3 cups of tea and have gotten the best value and enjoyment I can from my tea. I prefer to add cold water first as it is a better temperature to brew tea at, it gives more flavour and it is drinkable right away! I leave the teabag in the cup the entire time as I like a strong flavour. This is also because I usually don’t like to leave it on a dish at work to wait for me to finish my cup and re-steel it because a) it looks odd having a soggy teabag on a plate b) it usually gets thrown out by someone c) its extra work – I’m all about tea being easy and relaxing. To make the iced tea I let it cool and added ice to my cup – obviously there are better ways to make iced tea to appreciate it more, but by the glass at work this is an effective, hassle free method.”

Pleasently suprised!

* * * - - by Rachel Wilson • 26th January 2015

“Let me start by saying I am not at all a fan of liquorice but I recieved a free sample of this with another order and attempted to approach it with an open mind.

It is really sweet and not at all like the liquorice in the sweet shops. It isn't my first choice of tea ('s ace!) but I certainly won't turn it down in future.”

Satisfying Cuppa

* * * - - by maria • 22nd June 2012

“Good overall flavour but exceptionally sweet. If sweetness was toned down in it would be even better!.”

What a disappointment!

* * * - - by • 12th February 2009

“Did i get a bad batch or something?! In my opinion these flavours did not blend well at all. The initial peppermint flavour is admittedly quite pleasant but the liquorice which comes as the aftertaste is like a mouthfull of artificial sweetner, urgh!!. Two of my friends who also drank this felt the same. Sorry teapigs, we usually love your teas but not this one. 3 teapots is for the peppermint.”

Very sweet

* * - - - by Sara • 30th October 2012

“If you don't like your tea sweetened normally, this one is probably way to sweet for you. The taste is interesting (in a good way) but almost instantly drowned out by a hit of sickly sweetener taste. Of course, if you like sweet tea, this would be ideal.”

* * - - - by Karen • 31st March 2016

“The headnote is lovely pepperminty, sooo delicious; then you get a subtle hint of liquorice flavor, just right for me; but this quickly seems to mutate into a taste like a mouthful of glucose syrup. A good dash of lime or lemon juice gave this a fresh zing and took away some of the sweetness, and still it is just too sweet for me. But I just don't have much of a sweet tooth.”


* * - - - by • 18th September 2010

“Dont bother
The flavours come out after each other, so at first taste this tea is nice, but the after taste is disgusting.

It also tastes thick.....

sorry tea pigs, your teas are usually so tasty!”

Oh noooo a teapig I don't like...

* - - - - by • 27th February 2009

“I hate to say it but this tea didn't do it for me. It sounded wonderful and I can totally see why people love it but the two flavours were just too different for me. The mint was cool and refreshing but the extremely sweet taste after was too much of a contrast - my tastebuds were too confused to be delighted. I might try just infusing it for a few seconds rather than a few minutes but imagine I might be passing my box on to someone else. Don't let this put you off trying it if you think the combo would work for you!”


* - - - - by Paul Michael Wilhelmi • 24th June 2013

“I have tried this tea, and have realized that it is fully copied from a different brand: Duphil!
This company had this product in their portfolio for a few years now.
I've always thought teapigs is an innovative brand, that creates new flavors, but am now aware that this and a few other flavors are just taken from other producers.. I am very disappointed!!”

Just don't.

* - - - - by Lynne • 6th March 2012

“It was so promising - I like peppermint and I like liquorice. But this rank. Do yourself a favour and choose something else from the great range. It's putrid!”

Sweet in a bad way

* - - - - by Loren • 24th January 2012

“When they mention sweet twice in the description they really mean it! Perhaps if you go for two-three sugars in your cuppa then this is the tea for you.

Also where is the liquorice flavour? It doesn't taste of it at all, very disappointed with Teapigs.”


* - - - - by • 12th May 2011

“I am a big fan of teapigs tea but this one really did not suit my taste. I found it waaaaaaay too sweet and it actually made me feel sick! It is of course personal preference and others could find this tea delicious but it's definitely not for someone who doesn't like things SUPER sweet. Sorry teapigs! Love all the others though!”

Mega Sweet

* - - - - by Cat • 10th January 2014

“I felt like this had 5 sugars in and couldnt' get past the first mouthful. I had hoped it would be a great tea to help calm my tummy but just far too sweet. Well for me anyway!”


* - - - - by Jo • 26th October 2012

“Thankfully I bought this tea as a sample pack. I couldn't drink it, in fact it turned my stomach every time I attempted to. I love the teapig range so was disappointed I didn't love this. The mint aroma and taste were very overpowering.”

Too sweet for me.

* - - - - by Tom Hawkins • 25th February 2016

“Got this as part of a taster box and found it far too sweet for my tastes. I like peppermint tea and this was not minty enough for me. For aniseed flavour I also preferred the fennel and liquorice tea. You might like this one but I didn't.”

Too sweet :(

* - - - - by • 24th August 2010

“Sadly, I found this tea far too sweet for my taste. Perhaps if you find you need to add sugar to the 'Green tea with peppermint' variety, then this might be a tea for you.”
