We may as well be up-front: licorice root isn’t for everyone. If you don’t enjoy the sharp aniseed-y zing of black licorice, you probably won’t like licorice root tea. This is a shame, because licorice root has dozens of potential health benefits. Ancient Egyptians brewed it as a cure-all, and it’s been used to treat everything from stomach ulcers and heartburn to eczema and stress. For those that enjoy the taste (like us), licorice is woody and herbaceous, sweet on the tongue and gentle on the stomach. Brewing a pot is easy: just add two teaspoons of licorice root to boiling water and sweeten with honey or sugar.
Ingredients: Licorice Root.Serving suggestion: Add 1-2 teaspoons and brew in 90-95ºC water for 5-6 minutes. Strain and sweeten with honey or sugar.
