1.0 out of 5 stars Beware - can cause dangerously high blood pressure!!!!, 2 Jun. 2014
By 
This review is from: Teapigs Liquorice & Peppermint Tea 50bag (Grocery)
After drinking two to three cups a day of this delicious tea for a few months, I had a routine blood pressure check and was alarmed to find that my previously normal blood pressure was elevated to 185/117. By accident, while looking at hypertension on the internet for some clue to explain why my blood pressure had risen like this, I found an article on the effects of liquorice on blood pressure, put two and two together and stopped drinking the tea immediately. Now, five weeks later, my blood pressure is back down to normal. There is a sort of half-hearted warning on the box about going easy with the tea if you have existing hypertension, but my blood pressure was normal before I drank the tea. When we spoke to the company, they said that, because of these issues, they advise only one cup of the tea a day, but there are no such warnings on the box. I was lucky to find out so quickly and it worries me that there may be many others out there like me, drinking this tea with dangerously high blood pressure.

I doubt very much that it was the tea that caused your blood pressure to rise
