Description

This is the coarse cut variety of Liquorice Root Herbal Tea. It has an intensely sweet, herbaceous flavour and makes for an excellent alternative to sugary beverages. It can also, according to research, boost the immune system and provide menstrual relief. We pack Liquorice Root Coarse Cut Tea, like all of our Loose Teas, fresh to order.

What is Liquorice Root Tea?

The liquorice plant, known botanically as Glycyrrhiza glabra, grows predominantly in Europe and Asia. It can reach heights of up to a metre, producing pinnate leaves 7-15 centimetres in length. Nestled underground is the most delicious component: the root. It has become a popular ingredient in a variety of culinary dishes as well as, of course, Herbal Tea.

The Babylonians, Greeks, Romans, Chinese and the Hindu Brahmans of India used liquorice for its benefits. Most famously, King Tutankhamun of Pharaonic Egypt had a close association with the herb. In 1922, when the British archaeologist Howard Carter discovered his tomb, an assortment of treasures was found alongside the young Pharaoh's mummified body. Amongst the gold, jewellery and artworks were large quantities of liquorice root!

Does Liquorice Root Tea Have Caffeine?

This Herbal Tea doesn't come from the Camellia sinensis (Tea) plant. As such, it isn't a "Tea" in the conventional sense. The absence of Tea leaves also ensures that it doesn't contain any caffeine. (The exception to this rule, when it comes to Herbal Tea, is Yerba Mate).

Some see this as a health benefit. NHS Choices, for example, recommends that pregnant women do not exceed 200 mg of caffeine a day. With our Liquorice Root Coarse Cut Tea, however, you don't have to worry about any at all!

  2. I'm not very big fun of sweet stuff and the this tea is naturally very sweet, so there is no need to put extra sugar..., but the sweetness is not disturbing at all. It's pleasant and very delicious. I'm gonna order licorice tea in the future as well, because of it's health benefits.
