This is the 2nd in the series of Teapigs product reviews. This time I tried out the liquorice and peppermint tea. I was impressed with the ingredient list – 70% liquorice, 30% peppermint and that’s it, it’s exactly as it says on the packet.
I will quickly mention the packaging, I love the design, clean, simple and most importantly, recyclable. The tea bags are also biodegradable, so perfect to add to the compost bin after use.
The tea itself is delicious, the peppermint component is tasty, refreshing and easy to drink in vast quantities. The liquorice adds a sweet dimension to the tea and complements the peppermint flavour. My only gripe, I think there is a little too much liquorice for even my fairly sweet tooth.
That said, in the summer I imagine that a couple of bags would make a beautiful iced tea, with some fresh sprigs of mint and a few orange and lemon slices. If like me, you find the tea a little too sweet as a hot beverage, try using 1 bag between 2 servings. The quality of the ingredients used means that you can be economical with the tea bags, without compromising on flavour.
I would also suggest drinking this with Moroccan style meals, or using as an healthy alternative to sugary drinks, coffee or black teas.
At £4.49 for 15 bags, it’s a little on the pricy side compared with other herbal teas, but it’s more than justified, because of the high quality ingredients. As I mentioned before, if you find the tea too sweet, you can share a bag between 2 cups, effectively doubling the servings to 30.
