This didn’t smell great, but it’s surprisingly yummy. The main flavor is the throat coating licorice. It’s milder than in some other blends. I’m not sick, but I like to drink teas like this just for the tasty licorice flavor. Basically there’s nothing new here. Traditional Medicinals still has the best sick tea, and I prefer Stash’s licorice spice as well, but this is a good enough substitute while I don’t have the others in stock.
