All About Liquorice


Liquorice! Whether you love it or hate it, it’s all over the world and it is loved worldwide and it has no sign of going away any time soon. While some of us know it as a sweet red twist, it is mostly known for its anise-like flavor and black color. Liquorice is derived from the liquorice root, which is grown in parts of Europe and Asia. Many of the teas we carry often contain liquorice root, many of them caffeine free.
