Licorice Tea

As noted, I have taken to drinking more tea... And I am amazed at how many blends of tea contain licorice... Including, I have found an Egyptian licorice tea.

I like licorice.  Currently, licorice in America is not real licorice.  It is a gummy confection of various flavors.  Real licorice candy is different than what is sold in America.  Real licorice candy has real licorice in it, maybe aniseed oil, and may almost be bitter or salty.  As a child, my favorite uncle loved Old World licorice, and I developed the taste from him.  Sometimes, at gourmet candy stores, I can still find Old World licorice. And, I treat myself...
