How does Het Zoethoudertje taste?

Het Zoethoudertje has a tempting taste profile that is characterized by the harmonious combination of sweet, spicy and slightly spicy. The black tea forms a solid base, while the licorice root and licorice provide a pleasant sweetness that caresses your taste buds. The ginger adds a slightly spicy touch that balances the taste perfectly.

The result is a tea that is both warming and refreshing, making you want to reach for your cup again and again.

How strong is Het Zoethoudertje?

The Zoethoudertje has a medium strength, so you can enjoy a rich taste without it becoming too overwhelming. To make the perfect cup of tea, scoop a teaspoon of loose leaf tea into a tea filter or infuser. Then pour freshly boiled water (95°C) over it and let it steep for 3-4 minutes. This way all flavors and aromas come into their own.

Steeping the tea longer allows the licorice and licorice to become stronger, resulting in a more intense flavor.

Het Zoethoudertje

Het Zoethoudertje is not only a delicious tea, but also a celebration of the rich tradition and history that lies behind its ingredients. Liquorice root and licorice, two of the main ingredients, have a special connection with the Netherlands and have been loved in this country for centuries.

Licorice, also known as 'liquorice' in English, has been used since ancient times in Europe and the Middle East. It was valued for its medicinal properties and sweet taste. Licorice root, the main ingredient of licorice, comes from the roots of the Glycyrrhiza glabra plant. Licorice's sweetness comes from glycyrrhizic acid, which is 30 to 50 times sweeter than sugar.

The Dutch love for licorice goes back to the 17th century, when the country was an important trading center, importing exotic herbs and spices from all parts of the world. Dutch pharmacists were the first to produce licorice as a sweet and it quickly became popular throughout the Netherlands.

Today, the Netherlands is one of the largest liquorice consumption markets in the world. Licorice comes in a variety of shapes, flavors and textures, ranging from soft and sweet to hard and salty. It is deeply rooted in Dutch culture and loved by young and old alike.

Het Zoethoudertje brings this age-old tradition and love for licorice together in a unique tea experience. The combination of black tea, licorice root and liquorice creates a tasteful blend that feels both nostalgic and innovative. The hint of ginger adds an extra dimension that makes the tea refreshing and modern.

So when you enjoy a cup of Het Zoethoudertje, you not only taste a delicious tea, but also a piece of Dutch history and culture.
