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.

Why choose Buddha Teas?

Buddha Teas Logo

Buddha Teas searches the world for the very best herbs, flowers, spices, and teas to incorporate into our blended and single herb wellness products. We NEVER use additives or “natural” flavorings. Instead, we use substantial quantities of key ingredients to ensure our products have optimal efficacy. During our exploration for the best, we found that living in harmony with nature is ideal. We've realized that any time we need nature to provide for us, we must give something back. Sustainably harvesting and keeping waste and pollution at a bare minimum made sense to us. Buddha Teas is 100% chemical free, from our bleach free tea bags to our utilization of soy-based ink for our labels and beautifully colored tea boxes. When you buy Buddha Teas, you’re not only enjoying a flavorful, hand-crafted, all-natural tea but you will also feel peace of mind knowing that you are buying your tea from a company that gives back to our magnificent planet.

Bleach-Free Tea Bags

Our tea bags may not be the whitest, but they ARE the safest because Buddha Teas ONLY uses bleach-free teas bags. For us, this is not a preference but a necessity. Tea bags that have been bleached contain harmful chemicals such as dioxin and epichlorohydrin. Dioxin is a highly toxic, chemical compound produced by some chemical processes such as bleaching paper. It falls into the category of a POP (persistent organic pollutant) which, as the name suggests, persists and refuses to breakdown in our bodies and the environment, potentially taking decades to detox. Epichlorohydrin (bleach) is also toxic and listed as a hazardous air pollutant (HAP). It has been classified by the EPA as a human carcinogen.

We believe that our customers should never have to choose between their health and their senses so we proudly offer bleach-free tea bags so that they can taste the purity of natural teas without the cost of harmful chemicals or additives.
