Description

Want to cut out the treat but not the sweet? Liquorice Root Tea is the answer. This beverage is the very definition of indulgence without the guilt. Not only is it an excellent alternative to sugar, but likewise an extremely healthy option too. The frequent consumption of this herbal tea, providing an adequate dietary and exercise plan is in place, can potentially lower blood pressure, improve immune system health, and even offer relief to menstrual cramps. This is according to a multitude of scientific studies which, in the last decade alone, have just started to uncover this brew’s true potential. If the health benefits are secondary to you, then why not try this tea for taste alone?

Believe it or not, liquorice root is said to be 50 times sweeter in flavour than natural sugar. This is astounding accounting for the fact that our Liquorice Root Coarse Cut Tea is recognised as a healthy alternative to sugar. So, if you can’t resist that after-dinner dessert, why not instead brew up a cup Liquorice Root Tea and watch those pesky pounds simply slip away.

Botanically known as Glycyrrhiza glabra, the liquorice plant is native to Europe and Asia. A related species of licorice (English-American spelling) called Glycyrrhiza lepidota, meanwhile, can be found in Canada and the United States, although we use the former of the two in our herbal tea. Glycyrrhiza glabra can grow to heights of 1 metre while its pinnate leaves can reach lengths of 7 to 15 centimetres. Underground, the root is considered the most important component in terms of production for various culinary dishes including, of course, our herbal tea. Interestingly, in many European countries, liquorice is officially recognised as a ‘weed’.

While modern science has only very recently confirmed the health benefits of drinking Liquorice Root Tea, this concept is far from new and, in fact, dates back literally thousands of years. Just some of the ancient societies to use liquorice root for its medicinal qualities include the Brahmans of India, the Hindus, the Greeks, the Romans, the Babylonians, and the Chinese (the latter of which has long used liquorice root as part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)).

Perhaps most famous of all, in Ancient Egypt, King Tutankhamun was buried with vast quantities of liquorice root, clearing indicating its treasured status when found alongside his gold, jewellery, and artworks. We too treasure our finest quality liquorice root. We likewise expect you to share our appreciation when you try this herbal tea for the very first time.
