My Liquorice root sticks, Glycyrrhiza Glabra, are the real deal. Exceptional quality and tasty liquorice root from the Fertile Crescent. The Liquorice plant Glycyrrhiza Glabra is a leafy shrub grown for its lengthy roots, which have an extended history over millennia of healing properties and a deliciously distinctive sweet taste.
How to use it
The simplest way to make something with your root is to pop the stick in your mouth. Don’t try and eat it :0 allow it to soften as you gently suck it. The end of the stick in your mouth will soften and become juicy with a sweet taste. You can also make a drink by merely popping a root in a mug of hot water, you might want to shave off some of the bark first, but you don’t have to.
