Licorice Root Tea

Here’s a soothing and sweet recipe for Licorice Root Tea that blends the natural sweetness of licorice root with complementary flavors to create a comforting beverage. This tea is excellent for soothing sore throats or simply enjoying a relaxing moment.


  • 1 tablespoon dried licorice root, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried peppermint leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried chamomile flowers
  • 1/2 inch piece of fresh ginger, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups water
  • Honey or lemon (optional, for serving)


  1. Prepare the Ingredients:
  • If your licorice root is not already chopped, take a dry piece of licorice root and chop it into small pieces. This will help to maximize the surface area and allow more flavor to infuse into the tea.
  1. Combine and Simmer:
  • In a small saucepan, combine the chopped licorice root, dried peppermint leaves, dried chamomile flowers, and sliced ginger with 2 cups of water.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer gently for about 10-15 minutes. The longer you simmer, the stronger the flavors will be.
  1. Strain and Serve:
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat and strain the tea into a cup or mug through a fine mesh strainer to remove all the solid bits.
  • If desired, add a teaspoon of honey to sweeten or a squeeze of lemon for a touch of citrusy brightness.

This Licorice Root Tea is a delightful blend, with the licorice providing a natural sweetness that’s beautifully balanced by the refreshing mint, calming chamomile, and spicy ginger. It’s a wonderful tea to enjoy when you need a moment of calm or a soothing drink to ease a sore throat.
