In the Know

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!) To help offset the intensity of this tea, try pairing (sample ideas below).

What Does Buddha Teas Licorice Root Tea Taste Like?

Licorice Root Tea has its own, quite unique flavor. The tongue will distinguish a sweet sensation that lingers long after you sip.

Review Title: Subtly sweet

Review by alacarteon September 9, 2019
I have enjoyed other brands of licorice root tea and was curious about this one. It needs quite a long steep to bring out the sweetness. After having tried other Buddha Teas (e.g. dandelion, bitter melon) which had more pronounced flavors, this one seemed a bit muted by comparison.

Review Title: Delicious

Review by Cindyon March 27, 2019
I’m so delighted with finding Buddha Licorice Root Tea. It’s the most delicious Licorice Tea I’ve ever tasted, so fresh the flavor is out of this world. It’s part of my morning ritual to get the day going right!

Just had this after lunch today. It has a mild, sweet taste. It is a "keeper" in my tea rotation.

Review Title: Simply Sweet ~

Review by Monicaon November 27, 2018
I'm a big fan of licorice root tea, but this one is especially simple ... good to mix with more savory teas, and delicious on its own.

Review Title: Delicious and Healthy

Review by HBon November 19, 2018
The price on the 3 pack is really good--I can't find organic licorice tea for less $ anywhere else, including Amazon. The flavor is great and I find that I can reuse each tea bag 2x and still get a lot of flavor out of the second cup. I enjoy this daily and am looking forward to reordering from Buddha Teas directly! Shipping was faster than expected too.
