Licorice is known to soothe the digestive tract and promote respiratory health.*
Reason to Love
The word “licorice” is actually a corrupted version of its original Greek name Glukurrhiza, which means, literally, “sweet root.” Called “sweet stalk” in Sanskrit and “sweet herb” in Chinese, licorice is deeply loved around the world, not only for its signature, yes, sweetness, but for its role in supporting respiratory and digestive health. We adore this earthy root tea because licorice is simply lovable—and we can’t find a more shining example of everything that makes licorice fine.
Sweet! Rooty and viscous. Distinctly licorice-y.
The sweet earthiness of licorice is unmistakable and is a result of a naturally occurring compound called glycyrrhizic acid. The presence of this compound is a marker of quality you can taste. We work closely with a group of 14 collectors who sustainably wild collect the licorice root in this tea. For nine months of the year, they live in and harvest from Kazakhstan’s vast stands of wild licorice, which stretch as far as the eye can see.
We’ve Got the Right Stuff
The plants in this tea have been collected under the FairWild Certification scheme, which ensures a fair deal for people and plants. FairWild is the only certification scheme that promotes the sustainable wild collection of plants, in part by giving collectors fair pricing and other benefits for their communities. We’re the only company in the U.S. to use it, because people and plants matter.
