An easy, refreshing drink for any time. As written, the recipe is very sweet. I prefer my tea less sweet, so I usually decrease the amount of honey used. Cook time does not include cooling time.
- 6 cups water
- 2 1⁄2 teaspoons dried licorice root
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1⁄2 cup dried peppermint
- 1⁄2 cup honey
- In a large pot bring water to a boil over high heat. Stir in the licorice and cinnamon; lower to a simmer, partially cover the pot, and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in peppermint, cover and let steep for 10 minutes.
- Place a large strainer lined with cheesecloth or damp paper towel over another pot or heat-proof bowl. Strain tea. Stir in honey until dissolved and let cool completely, about 1 hour. Serve over ice.
I love the taste of licorice root, and really enjoyed this tea. I diluted the mix a little. Thanks so much for the recipe!
