Licorice Root Tea Health Benefits
Whether it is spelled licorice or liquorice, this root and its distinct flavor are undeniably loved all over the world. Licorice is a type of legume, originally from southern Europe and Asia. Its name comes from the original Greek term, which translates as ‘sweet root’, and it has been highly favored for its taste since long before the days of ancient Greece. Large amounts of licorice root were found in the tomb of King Tut, demonstrating its value even in ancient Egypt. The root has served to add flavor in various applications, especially candy, sweets, and several beverages, including alcoholic liquors. Historically, it was seen more often in beverages than food, making licorice tea a much older indulgence than the candies licorice is mainly used for today. Licorice tea is a spectacular brew, bearing a distinct aroma and a strong, familiar taste that licorice lovers will surely become excited for.
A Truly Dynamic Root Tea
The potent flavor of licorice root tea is only one of its many compelling qualities. Licorice root tea offers a natural source of vitamin C, and multiple B vitamins, and minerals such as iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus and silica. Licorice root is also loaded with a number of active constituents; a few of its notable constituents include flavonoids, saponins, triterpenes, quercetin, coumarins, and volatile oils. These constituents, together with its nutrients, make licorice root a truly powerful herbal tea.
