    Hi
    have found this recently. I love all things liquorice, and this tastes just like the liquorice root I used to chew as a child.

    I love liquorice too but I find the tea too sweet for me.
    Apparently liquorice is used as a natural sweetener in things so I guess it makes sense even though I don't find liquorice itself to be sweet! Odd!

    I love liquorice tea although have to leave the tea bag in for quite a while as otherwise I find it's more sweet without the lovely taste.

    I love liquorice too but I don't eat it often because it's hard to find it without gelatin.
    But the subject is
    liquorice tea....I've never tried it, maybe I will. Is there a particular brand that is a good one. I'm loathe to buy a box and then find it's ugh!
    Thanks for any help.

    Twinings do it in a purple box. Hope you enjoy it, I find it tasty when left to go cold as well
    all the best

    Glad I'm not the only one who loves this. I often have it when I need something sweet but don't have any syns left :) I occasionally make up a whole jugful, let it go cold and then I've got scrummy drinks for the whole day :)

    i love liquorice but not tea,i have been on slimming world for about two month with steady weight losses of 1-2 pounds a week until i found Aurile Metabolism Coffee,it is so nice and has given me loads of energy and im only drinking two cups after each meal and last week i lost 9 pounds in one week,so this coffee really works!!.
    i will be keep buying this from now on as works great along side the slimming world plan!

    I did try the Twinings Liquorice tea and really like it....I'm probably a lot older than most of you but it reminds me of the 'wooden' liquorice sticks I used to chew when I was a school girl...you could only taste the liquorice when you swallowed. I find the tea the same...only tastes when you swallow the liquid.

    Thanks for this! My OH loves the woody liquorice stuff so maybe he will like the tea too! I'd like to try it (make a change from peppermint!) so I'm going to pick a box up :)

    I love liquoriche tea! You just reminded me that I still have a few bags left over of a Dutch brand that I brought with me when I moved to the UK. Going to go hunt for them in my cupboard now :D
