A review of Organic Fennel by Traditional Medicinals

Company: Traditional Medicinals
Tea Name: Organic Fennel
Tea Type/Varietal: herbal
Region: Bulgaria / California, USA
Steeping Vessel/Amt Leaf: cup/ tea bag
Liquor Color: golden brown
Leaf Characteristic:


I used freshly boiled water and putting one tea bag in my cup, adding the boiled water and left it to steep for 15 minutes.

The teas’ aroma is strongly of licorice and when I sip of the tea, this is what I am met with. I don’t take at all to licorice, so I have several small sips of the tea before I can become accustom to its strong and pungent taste.
To compensate, I remind myself that this tea is good for me. As it will soothe and supports my digestion in relieving of excess gas, bloating and that fullness that comes when one consumes a little too much.

Overall tasting notes: I would not mind the tea so much, if the licorice could be removed and yet I feel that it would not be the same tea in my cup. So leave it as is.

Cup’s characteristic: This cup of tea is strongly of licorice, through and through.

Liquor color: golden brown

Taste: slightly bitter with the licorice chiding away at the sting of it.

190 °F / 87 °C 8 min or more

I like to drink tea less so than when I was aptly reviewing teas. I find that I like less and less of things as I age. I am a somber spirit who prays daily to not be at all. Thank you Steepster for all that you do to enrich tea drinkers.
