Licorice is one of the most popular flavors in candy and beverages around the world. Unadulterated Buddha Teas Licorice Root Tea does not disappoint.

Many people may not realize that licorice is not candy. True licorice root is not black, not red, and isn’t consumed at the movie theater. For our purposes here, let’s just toss out the notion that licorice is candy at all, because it’s really not.

What Exactly is Licorice Root?
The licorice plant is a herbaceous perennial legume. Native to southern Europe and parts of Asia, though its flavor profile mimics anise, star anise, and fennel, they are not botanically related. Licorice plant flowers are long and beautiful, boasting a purple to pale whitish blue tone.

Health Benefits of Licorice Root Tea
Though excessive consumption of licorice can cause complications for some people, as an herbal remedy for periodic treatment of various issues, its use is ancient and widespread.

How to Brew Licorice Root Tea
Make sure the water is hot enough to extract the full flavor and benefits; a good boil is recommended. However, Buddha Teas Licorice Root Tea need not steep a super long time; you’ll get great flavor after only a few minutes. The color should resemble light amber. (No, it’s not black!)

Warning: Because the chemical makeup of Licorice Root Tea includes glycyrrhizinic acid, which can decrease blood potassium, those concerned about high blood pressure, body fluid issues, or other health concerns should limit their intake. When in doubt, please check with your health care practitioner prior to enjoying this tea.
