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. However, sweet may not be the most accurate way to describe this delightful, grounding tea. Somewhat tangy, decidedly rich, or thick feeling, there is no mistaking the distinctive taste of Buddha Teas Licorice Root Tea. For added benefits, as well as additional flavor experiences, try pairing with Sencha Green Tea, Sarsaparilla Root Tea, or Chamomile Flower Tea.

Review Title: Smooth Licorice Root Tea

Review by Terryon January 13, 2021
Licorice tea is one of my favorite flavors, especially at night. This Licorice Root Tea has the smoothest, most subtle flavor I've ever tasted. At first, it was hard to appreciate the not-in-your-face licorice flavor, but in a short period of time I grew to like its smooth complex flavor. So I've made this my go-to licorice tea.

Review by Jordanon August 16, 2020
I use this licorice tea in place of artificial and natural sweeteners. This is the only unsweetened tea that has been sweet enough for me, as other brands don't have enough licorice to impart the full flavor. I even liked it better than the Buddha Teas Fennel Tea as well. I've reordered nine boxes since my first order during the lockdowns.
